Its a gorgeous day now - sun shining, leaves falling gently, carpeting the ground in different shades of red, gold and brown , and it make me nostalgic for the days when my two were babies. Then I would just wrap them up warmly , put them in a pram or buggy , and set out for a bracing walk .
Now , it takes fifty minutes , at least 4 tantrums and raised blood pressure just to get them ready to go out, by that point I've either lost the will, or its started raining again ! So, for now, I'll just sit and look outside and dream of babies who could be put it prams !
Well, I've almost decided what pattern I'm going to do , BUT, I forgot I lent my Denise needles to my Aunt, who was on holiday until recently. So to fill in the time until I get them back (which could be like NOW, if I wasn't so lazy and would pick up the phone), I decided last night to start something in my lovely Noro Silver Thaw .
The pattern is called Erica (its the one on the right) .
And although you can't see there is a little "cross-ribbed" effect , or perhaps its more a twisted rib , mmmm , can't quite decide !
Anyway , every second rib has a slight twist to it .
And here is the start of the back , I just love knitting with Noro Silver Thaw , and I'm so disappointed that it is now discontinued . Thank goodness for Ebay and De-stashers !
The colours are given numbers instead of names , so this one is Number 13 - Lucky for some!
It has a hood which is not shown in the picture, and when I started knitting it, I thought it may be a good sweater for relaxation at Yoga. So while relaxing at Yoga today, I kept envisaging this sweater - Peace , man!
