Update post

I will mainly update on what's been happening on the knitting front, but also the sexy men situation.

I haven't done anything about hubby's cardigan. A whole lot of ripping needs to happen first and I'm really not in that space yet. So what is a girl to do but to cast on for loads of new projects. First up, Butterfly from Rowan 37. I'm knitting it in Kid Silk Haze in Grace (a baby pink colour). The project has stalled a bit in the last few days due to illness of child and lack of sleep of mummy. This baby needs a lot of concentration, otherwise you'll be ripping out KSH. I'd rather stick needles in eyeballs. I'm hoping for more progress soon, as Keira is definitely getting better.

Next up, is a sleevless hoodie cardigan for my lil princess. It's knitted in Sirdar Supernova Chunky (wool plus acrylic mix) which I bought in a bargain bin years ago for £1 a ball. I amalgamated a few patterns and knitted it in the round , made pockets (a first, I think!) and it's practically complete in a few hours. Let's hope she'll wear it. Finally, a FO - more wrsitwarmers. This time, knitted in basic rib and stocking stitch. The yarn is Gedifra Fashion Stripe. I think I should have made the top ribbing a little bit longer but the yarn is a b*tch to rip out as well. So, c'est la vie. It's a gift for one of the kids' teachers in nursery school. I think they look OK and they feel really soft. Hope she likes it.

Now, on to the sexy men. Ruth- we're still in season 2 of Grey's Anatomy in the UK. Tonight was the first time I saw McSteamy. WOW! Actually, the quota of sexy men on Greys Anatomy is really high. McDreamy, McSteamy, Dr Burke and Alex. Hmmmmm. I wonder if this is why I like the programme.

Maybe if you imagine the ribbed cardigan is for Keanu or one of the other 10 on the list, it might get done faster? Just a suggestion. The FO's look great and can't wait to see Princess' sleeveless hoodie blocked and modeled by none other than her highness!

Glad to hear Keira's feeling better and you're feeling less stressed as a result. That li'l hoodie looks lovely.

Seriously.. seriously. I love that show. Although I think McDreamy is the top of the pile winner.
