nine

there was no eight - sorry, monday just wiped me out again! the slower pace of the weekend a long & distant memory, it feels that the weeks are racing past {i'm vaguely aware of how many weeks left till xmas but kind of wish i wasn't} the thought of going into hibernation seems rather appealing, i'm doing my best to stay cosy, snug & layered up, so thought i'd share some of the knitting i've been up to lately, this is a little waist coat / extra layer type top, it's not quite finished yet, there are ends to sew in & a few edges to pick up & knit, but it's ever so soft & cosy as it is, i'm rather tempted to wear it round the house now, i'll share some more pictures & details when it's all done

it's a pattern from a noro book, knitted up in some noro kochoran & some freedom purity chunky,  i'm a little concious of the fact i look slightly like i should be presenting a children's television show but i do so love how the colours change & it's ever so soft & cosy  { but i am tempted to knit the pattern again in a solid colour as i would probably get more wear out of it then}

  2. Knitting stripes of Noro + a plain yarn is the best kind of knitting there is, regardless of what you're making! Your top is lovely. Jill
