Welcome to Wool on Sundays 36 and huge apologies to anyone who came to link up last Sunday or earlier today. My blog has, sadly, fallen by the wayside recently, although I do have a new project started.
My younger daughter had her tonsils out recently and, although, the operation seems to have gone well, for various reasons involving allergic reactions and painkillers not working I’ve been spending a lot of time with her in the A + E department. So I’m making a cardigan, which looks like this on one side…
The right side is yet to be decided. I don’t know what the stitch is called but I’m working odd rows in k1,p1 rib and even rows in k only. It gives a warm, thick texture and is simple enough to do when you’re very tired and a bit more interesting than stocking stitch! When I thought the body may be long enough, I didn’t have a tape measure so I’ve started a sleeve with the other end of the yarn pulled from the centre. I hope it doesn’t end up in a big knot…
On a happier note the menagerie is slowly settling, touch wood.

Do you have any yarn projects in progress? If so, I’d love you to link up with WOOL ON SUNDAYS. The rules as usual are:
1). Posts must include some content – makes or musings – related to knitting, crochet, felting, spinning or yarn.
2). Projects sewn from felt or wool fabric or stitchery using wool are also welcome but please don’t link posts that are exclusively about sewing, quilting and fabrics.
3). Posts don’t have to be from the past week but please put a link to WOOL ON SUNDAYS or grab the button from my sidebar and include it in or at the bottom of any posts you link up.
4). Visit anyone else who links.
Wishing you a happy week :)
