Wednesday's have fast become knitting day on this blog, thanks to Ginny's Yarn Along. And aren't Wednesdays all the better when there's a finished project to show off? Here it is, the sweet little Jane, knit in a pale blue Debbie Bliss cotton. I love the pattern but I'm not enamoured with the texture of this yarn. It seems quite heavy and dense for cotton, but that probably just means we'll get some wear out of it during this ridiculous summer where long sleeves and jackets are on call most days.
Of course, today it's sweltering, so here's a pictorial journey of how successful I was getting one particularly headstrong nearly-two-year-old to model her new cardi in the midday sun.
We are clearly at that in-between stage in the knitting mama's life - no longer compliant babies who will wear whatever I choose and sit dribbling for the camera, but not yet savvy enough to understand a good bribe when it's on offer.
On the reading front, I'm still plugging away at Thea Astley. And still knitting away at the purple vintage woollen cardigan. More on that next week, I hope.
Ravelry notes for the pale blue Jane here.
