One jumper down.....two to go.

 I finished this jumperyesterday.It is a nice easy pattern to do watching TV.
 I put this photo in to show the cable pattern on the cuffs and it is round the neck as well but it has not really worked.
Feeling flush with my success I decided I would make another jumper.Recently opened about twenty minutes away is the online supplier smdknitting www.knitting wool.com.Not only do they do online they have a shop as well.You will all know how difficult it is choosing yarn on line.The colours are never true.So,along I go with the intention of choosing one of the above but of course I couldn't decide so bought both!!Plus some very fetching yarn in the counter for a shawl.Cinnamon and olive are the two colours/So I am going to be kepy busy.

I have not blogged for a while because we have been away.We had a week self catering in Northern France and then an all inclusive week in Spain.I much preferred France.It was too hot in Spain and we ate and drank too much.As you can see fro my photo I put on weight and I can't shift it.I am feeling a bit sorry for myself at the moment but am hoping a day with my family tomorrow will cheer me up.We are meeting near Ashbourne in Derbyshire at lunchtime and then having a night in an hotel.Matt and his family are coming from Cambridge,Sarah and family from Cheshire and us from North Wales.Eleven of us all together.It doesn't happen very often.I will report back on Monday.

  6. That new alpaca wool is glorious,not my usual colour choice but i can see instantly why you had both. I like Stylecraft yarns, they are good value for money.
