Forgive me father, it's been a month since my last confession blog entry

Just a little flashback to my catholic school upbringing there. I shudder just thinking about it.

I knew when I started this blog that I would probably never write more than once a week, but I never thought I'd let a whole month go by. No excuses for it really; I just don't seem to have much to say these days.

However, since I've had a couple of emails asking if everything was alright, I thought I'd better let you know that I'm still around. Thanks to those who asked!

There has been a bit of knitting going on:

Christmas present socks for my boss. My preferred garter rib pattern.



Although the blanket, hat and socks had been done for well over a month, I finally knit a matching sweater for this set. I used the pattern for the Tulips Baby Cardigan as a starting point. Once I had gone a few rows after the sleeve stitches are left on hold, I joined the two front parts together and kept going in the round so that I got a pull-over instead of a cardigan. I just crocheted around the neck opening. My kind of sweater: no sewing up!



I started another blanket which is still at the same stage since I abandoned it for some Christmas knitting. I'll finish this one during my Christmas vacation.



That's all folks.

That's a lovely baby gift set. You must have a lot of patience to work with two colors on a project that large. I have a hard enough time juggling 2 balls with a hat.

Very nice socks for your boss.

Those baby afghans are goregous. What pattern are you using? I can well appreciate the border. Such patience. I hope the recipient is grateful.
