Two new projects?!

A lovely weekend was had here in our little hovel. On Sunday we all went out to the park at Lilydale Lake and played on all of the play equipment for a few hours, but Marcus' favourite thing to play with was the water fountain.

When we arrived Dot was still asleep so I waited in the car while Felix and Marcus went off to run around like chickens with their heads cut off. On Saturday I realised the true horror that was my knitting: I HAD NO TV KNITTING! Nothing I could sit down and knit mindlessly without any problems. So I cast on a cardigan for Dot (yes, another one) and worked on that while I waited for her to wake up.

The pattern is Hatchling, by Lion Brand, and I'm knitting the size 2-3. Now, Dot's already in a size 3 (she's really tall) so I'm knitting this in 10ply cotton from Morris & Sons. I only have a ball of each colour, so the end result will be feather and fan stripes - yummy!

On Thursday I started crocheting up a wreath for my front door as well, but I've run short of 8ply cotton in Talc (white), again from Morris. This Thursday I'll head back in and grab another ball.

There's new 10ply there. Might have to have a little browse...

Hatchling is a very cute pattern. I can't wait to see what it looks like.
