Olympic update

As you can see, my Bobbley Cardigan is coming along nicely, and enjoying it's sunbathing session, it would appear. However, whilst both finished sleeves might be relaxing, my needles certainly are not! Normally I do the back of a jumper, then the front, then sleeves, but I wanted to get a handle on the astrakhan stitch pattern before attempting either fronts or back. I'm glad I did - it's really rather quite easy once you get use to wielding the ginormous 12mm sticks - I mean needles.

So, the plan is to get the fronts done this week, leaving the back and blocking/sewing for next week. Sounds easy, right? Well, it would be if my evenings weren't taken up with French lessons, yoga, dinners out and tickets to musicals. Plus, I'm praying that I don't run out of wool, which would be rather like me.

Okey dokey, back to zee needles!
