I realised the other day I'm never going to finish half the stuff I've started, so I might aswell get sidetracked and start some more new projects while I'm at it. I got out my knitting books for a bit of eye candy fun and ended up lusting after this pink sweater. Now I've never been great at cabling so I thought perhaps I'd better start small first and have a practice on something else first.
That's how I came to be making these creamy cabled wristwarmers for Eldest Bun. I found some Rowan Cocoon in the bottomless cupboard of stashed yarn to use. I bought it to make a cardigan, knitted the back and then stupidly lent the book the pattern was in to someone I was teaching to crochet. I've never seen them since, so that taught me to not lend expensive books out.
We had a fabulous time on Saturday night having our own Bonfire Party. A few friends popped over, the kids screeched, with delight at the fireworks; Alfie howled at being parted from his master and then we cosied up indoors to eat and drink until we were merry.
I was busy being a good hostess and having fun so I forgot to take any pictures once everyone got here, but anyway you all know what a firework looks like. Just say an ooohhh and aaaahh and you'll have the full picture of it all.
Hope you all had a great weekend whatever you got up to.
