Chunky Jackets For The Girls
I have finished off both of the chunky jackets for my Great Grand Daughters. I am really pleased with the way that these have turned out. The pattern is Sirdar 2273 and I made these jackets with 3 x 200 gram balls of James C Brett Marble chunky Shade MC12. I thought that each jacket would take 2 balls each so I have an extra ball left over. I have a couple of hat books in the post from Amazon so when they arrive I will check through them to see if there is a hat pattern that I could make to go with these jackets. I have plenty hat patterns but just wanted something different. I bought the wool online from Purplelinda.
The weather is not too bad today. Still a bit chilly but at least the sun is trying to shine and it is a much brighter day than yesterday.
I am starting a baby jacket next as I am going to the Kings Arms knit club tomorrow (weather permitting) and want to give the bar man a jacket for his new baby to be. I did start one last night but as it is yoke down and every row different I gave up as I was watching programmes linking famous people to Wales. I like programmes that trace ancestry back and would love to have that done for me someday. I lack the patience to do it for myself.
I had a bit of a lazy start to the day but it is Sunday, the day of rest. I think that I will just get a coffee and pick up the baby knitting instead of doing any housework. I loathe housework and admit to doing only the very necessary. If I was rich I would employ a cleaner that's for sure as hoovering wrecks my back for hours afterwards, especially the stairs. I think that I will wish for a housework fairy. Does anyone know where they live?
