Finished the ballet cardigan

All done.

Added on a sideways knit band, which also included the ties. I knitted the whole thing in the round, using the double knit method - very easy actually. Just kind of boring knitting a long, long tube.

Next, I'll be making crochet gloves and choker for me (part of new character costume) and a men's long coat (patchwork, with applique felt leaves). For a costume for a character that used to be a tree.

Will post photos when I get to it.

Oh, and I picked up Smoulder again, and will be knitting on that at home when watching DVDs etc.

Nearly done on the ballet cardigan...

So I finished the second pink cloud cardigan, but forgot to take a picture before gifting, sorry.

I'm very nearly done on the ballet cardigan.

The body and sleeves are knitted, and I've even done a crocheted edge to stabilise it all over.

I'm now knitting the ties. I'm hoping to be done by the end of the weekend, if I get some DVD and knitting time in!

Progress thus far...Then.. well. I'm not sure.

I've been brushing up on my crochet skills, I've finally got the needles I needle to make socks two at a time , and I still have the stripy Smoulder cardigan to finish. I might try working on the latter - the weather is pefect for it coming into Spring proper..

Two pink cardigans. I must be seeing double.

Two small girly girls wanted a pink cardigan each.

One for ballet, one to match her friends.

Thus we have item one..

and item two.

Both mostly at sleeves stage. Both top down raglans, though at very different guages.
Knitting while watching ABC iView is the bestest thing ever, and I want ABC to add more programs covered. Pretty please.
