These are my two knitting projects at the moment, my Shalom cardi and Jenna’s birthday cardigan. I love the tradition we have started regarding knitting a garment for a birthday in our family, it feels so special… Here is Erin’s cardigan I knitted in April this year. I am so enjoying knitting my Shalom, I have cast off for the arms and I am knitting down the length of the body. I think this will go fairly quickly, I worked out all the decreasing with my new stitch modifications for the armholes and it all worked out just fine. I also tried it on today and it fits perfectly!! I am so excited to wear it.
There is still time to join in the Shalom KAL if you are keen, people are joining up all the time:) Yay!

Jenna’s birthday cardigan is coming along nicely, I started knitting it on Friday and I am almost up to the sleeves:) I have until next Thursday to finish, I really love this organic handspun merino. I have ordered more so I can knit a cardi for Richard and Kye has also asked me to knit him one too:)

I think once I have finished these two cardigans, I am going to give the Hourglass Sweater a try from Last Minute Knitted Gifts, I am thinking a lovely burnt orange colour would knit up well:) Maby this could also be a KAL?

What are you busy knitting at the moment? Thanks so much for visiting my space:)

    I’m knitting some washcloths up in a hurry to take down to my Grandmother’s house. She is turning 90 and has probably been using the same dishcloths for the past 40 years. 🙂

    I’ve put the Last Minute Knitted Gifts on my birthday wish list — sounds like it’s a great book.

    Your knitted things are always so pretty they almost make me want to learn to knit…almost. 🙂

    I’m back to horses. I think I finally have it. I haven’t let myself even look at yours yet, because I don’t want to cheat.

    Your work is so lovely. I have joined the shalom kal, but I am having a hard time working up the energy to rip out (again!) the rows that I am struggling with. I’ve set is aside while I work on my daughter’s birthday gift, a dress with a knit top and fabric bottom. I do so love the tradition of handmades for birthdays.

    Your shalom cardi is looking beautiful in white. Love the colorway on Jenna’s sweater as well.
