Being off work certainly has its advantages. This week I have been working on the Little Ladies cardigan and after only a few sittings (exceptionally long sittings) I am almost finished it. I've really got stuck into knitting this cardigan. I think because I am knitting in aran yarn it is working up quite quickly.
I love Tin Can Knit patterns as they are seamless making it more likely that once its completed it wont sit in my basket just waiting to be sewn up. I am hoping that I will finish the cardigan today, all I have left to do is the yoke and the button bands. I will then need to raid the button box to see if I have any/enough suitable buttons for it or if i need to order some. I love my button box, a little box of colourful treasure, you remove the lid and can't help but smile and dive your hand into the treasure to see what you might discover.
I continue (slowly) to read The Night Circus and the more I read the more I love it, I guess as I am enjoying my knitting so much this week I will continue to read at the same pace.
I am enjoying having lots of flowers around the house this week. If you read my blog regularly (thank you) then you will know last week I had a minor operation on my knee and this week I am recovering, I have had friends and family visit and with them they have brought some lovely flowers. The smell fills the house and the colours are bright and cheery. I shall be sad when all the vases are empty and the lovely scents have dissipated but thankful they were here if only for a short time.
Today I am linking up with A Yarn Along.
