A few things have been completed on the knitting front recently. First of all this little jumper that took just one 100g ball of Opal sock yarn. It started out as travel knitting and has now been posted off to Jenny the Swedish blond I used to work with, she had a little boy a few weeks ago. Then a simple little cardy in Rowan dk that has gone into stock for now but should soon find an owner amongst the babies due in the next few months
Finally, thanks to the link to this site from Yarnstorm, I've produced a couple of squares for the Macmillan appeal. You can download the patterns and use up some yarn in a good cause, about 25 g of dk is enough to make a 20 cm x 20 cm square. I'm really enjoying producing these, quick results although the cable was a bit trickier. The heart square pattern suggested adding beads round the shape but I purled on the right side where the beads should have been for a similar result. I'm looking forward to using up more spare wool and watching the blanket grow though I'll need some new projects for the many days of travel facing me next week, best to take lots I think.
