Haru Jacket is Finished
Another Christmas present is finished. I have made this Haru jacket from Doris Chan's Everyday Crochet book for my sister in law. My niece chose a couple of things for me to give to her mum as she knows that I have trouble getting about shopping but I wanted to add my own personal touch. My sister in law has worn the shawl that I made for her last year almost every day so I wanted to make her a little pop on jacket that she could wear whilst in the house. I made it from 400 grams of Jarol double knit with wool that I bought on Bury Market. It is lovely wool to work with and feels lovely and soft.
I am still plodding on with the Sedgemoor jacket and have about a half sleeve to knit. Then I should go back to the scarf that I started a week or more ago but as that is navy blue then it's strictly daytime knitting. I still have quite a bit to do but as most of it is crocheted then I am not as worried as I was at the beginning of the week.
All I need is to get a couple of good night's sleep in. I was up at 4.30am this morning with the pain in my knee so am not exactly full of the joys of Spring today. I did manage a cat nap on the sofa for about an hour this morning but it isn't quite the same as a good long stretch of sleep. I can't remember when I last slept through the night.
I have just had a visit from a friend Sue who brought me some chocolate buns that she had made, I have eaten one for my lunch and very yummy it was too. Her daughter's baby is due tomorrow so she will have a new grandbaby for Christmas this year.
Back to the knitting now as I really want to finish off the last sleeve and stitch up my niece's jacket today.
