Yesterday, was a lazy day as we didn't get to bed until 4am, so I sat watching T.V. and knitting, which brings me to my first WIP Wednesday of 2013.
I got some gorgeous Rowan yarn in the sale last week at John Lewis, which was less than half price, I bought some Cashsoft 4ply, Amy Butler Belle Organic Aran, Cashsoft DK and a couple of balls of Pure Wool Aran.
I wanted to start a new project and was flicking through The Ultimate book of Baby Knits by Debbie Bliss. There are so many gorgeous patterns in there and I had all this new 4ply yarn, I normally knit for little girls but was drawn to the little boy's Cable Sweater, it is so cute.
I had bought some navy yarn which is a colour I wouldn't normally buy but was perfect for this little jumper. I'm not sure who I will give it to yet but my sister is having another baby, she is having a scan tomorrow and will find out what sex she is having. Maybe, after 3 girls she is having a boy and that is why I had this urge to knit for a boy, I will let you know !!!!
I started it on Friday and managed to do the front, back and neck, it isn't very often that the three of us are all in the house together so have made the most of it. I have loved just sat with them doing nothing but watching films, Paige reading Harry Potter and me knitting, we are so rock 'n' roll.
Yesterday, I started the sleeves so I might get it finished this week, today a few of us are going to my friend, Lyn's house for lunch and some crafting, so I can carry on with it round there.
If you pop over to Tami's blog, you can check out what everyone else is working on.
I'll let you know tomorrow whether I will be knitting for a boy or a girl, I'm so excited to be an Aunty again, I will be planning a Baby Shower for my sister, soon.
Have a good week,
