Other people's knitting

After a couple of good days in the garden last week generally tidying and willing the snowdrops to start flowering, I woke up to this on Saturday morning.
What is a girl to do but knit. Pam started this little cardigan in Patons 4 ply cotton. The colour is grape and the pattern is Mimi from Pipsqueaks by Kim Hargraves. Halfway up the back Pam decided she didn't like knitting 4 ply, I think its probably my favourite so I was happy to take over. The safety pins up the front are to mark the positions for the buttons which I don't have, there is no separate front or neck band. So back to sock knitting for a while, though I do enjoy making things for the little ones so I might start something woolly for Amelia soon, especially if the weather stays like this. While I'm waiting for my own bulbs to begin their display I treated myself to a bunch of British grown daffs, I just couldn't wait any longer.

  4. No snow here but weather not good enough to garden either. Roll on Spring!

  5. Bought myself a bunch of the same. I've planted lots of bulbs in pots but there's no sign of anything stirring yet. Lovely cardi. That colour is gorgeous.

  7. Daffodils... what a great sight for winter-sore eyes! No sight of spring blooms in the garden yet here--only in the shops...LOL! LOVE the purple cardi--too sweet... the picot edges are delightful! Happy Days, Jenny :o) ((HUGS))

  8. Another vote for the daffodils here. I came back from my weekend away to find that Mr JK had bought two pots of mini daffs to brighten up the kitchen! Bless him!

  9. Hhm, I'd take your sprinkling over our fresh 10" any day of the week! Off to Italy soon????? Love the daffs, but would have to buy some as I won't see mine until April!
