Another thing ticked off
Lavender Fields blanket - Voila

Wave Cardi Progress

and joining Ginny for yarnalong.

It's a grey miserable day here in Hertfordshire and I would love to be curled up on the sofa, under my duvet with a bowl of popcorn, mug of hot chocolate and the Back to the Future boxset! But alas I am at work, feeling like a little germ has made it's way in and a cold is coming. I can't let a cold eat into my knitting time though!

The back and fronts of my Wave cardi are done. Sleeves are currently being worked up together. This is such a lovely simple knit, as there is no armhole shaping and the fronts had very simple decrease on the front edge.

I can't wait to start assembling! My goal is to finish the sleeves by the weekend so I can block the pieces and be ready to start putting this beauty together early next week. Still on track to finish by the end of October.

Speaking of October deadlines, I need to photograph Lavender Fields so I can share the details. If you're looking to make blankets for Christmas this pattern and yarn is a must. In fact i'm thinking of a blanket for darling husband for Christmas! Not that I really want to add anything else to my WIP list.

Not much reading done this week. Still trying to get an early night and more than a couple of pages read before nodding off.

It took me ages to get through all the blogs shared for yarnalong last week. I'm so glad I did, because there is such wonderful inspiration on those blogs and I have to try very hard not to add the projects you're all doing to my Ravelry library! (I did add a few this week, YIKES!!)

Over the weekend I unpacked my autumn capsule. It's been six months since I packed these clothes away so it was lovely to see them again and I am looking forward to the weekend and choosing an outfit. Although I was a little sad packing summer away in a drawer!

Happy Wednesday :)

Ciao xx
