It's been a while!

It's been some time since I posted - August just flew by... I've been working away at Beau - I'm altering it. Did I tell you that despite swatching, my first attempt was too big - by about 6 inches!! And Rog doesn't go for teabaggy clothing. So I ripped it all out, and am now making it again with the number of stitches the pattern called for.

I've knit it in the round (you know how I hate sewing seams / am very bad at it), and I'm adding the sleeves now so I don't have to sew them in either.




I'm test knitting some very lovely and cable-y socks:



And the garden continues to make us happy...

You're lucky to have a garden of your own! I miss one in summers.

The sweater looks awesome and how clever not to have nasty seams, the sewing up is always the part that makes me want to scream. Love the garden.
