Ahh the joys of a holiday

I haven't got much access to the computer or the internet at my parents in KL. When I do manage to get on, the kids are continually bugging me to let them get on it too for games etc....

We're having a great time in KL, eating too much and catching up with old friends and shopping (sadly not yarn shopping - too expensive and not that I need anymore yarn!!)

On the crafting front, mum requested that I knit her a cardigan as she had 16 balls of yarn just lying around. So what is a dutiful daughter to do, except do that!! I'm just knitting a top down garter stitch yoke cardigan. I'm at the point of knitting the widest bit and the boredom of knitting 300 over stitches for one row is killing me!!!! Not bad progress for about 5 nights of knitting.Also, I've been practising on my bead crochet, I'm making a necklace for me! Going great so far!

Summer finally arrives

Apologies for not blogging in the recent weeks, I've been super busy with end of term stuff with the kids (sports day, summer concert, parties......). I have managed to finish one thing recently. It's the Garter stitch cardigan in Rowan Scottish Tweed Aran. Just perfect for the super warm summer that we've been having.
