Another quick fix knit a little ruffle hat for Gracie. The pattern is Bernat Ruffle Hat which obviously I found on The yarn is Babylonglegs Merino Double knit called LottieRu.
Not much going on round here, I am fed up but don't know why, must be the time of year!
I can't even seem to get on with my knitting which is bad, hence why I started the little hat, needed to actually finish something. My two wip are just floundering at the moment.
I am reading the new Dawn French book at the moment called Dear Fatty, and it is really good, it was an anniversary present which was last Friday. I also got the complete series 3 of Marple mysteries which is great as I hadn't seen 3 of the episodes.
Not much else to report just the usual borring stuff. I think I will try to do some knitting today.

The little cardigan is now finished.Yeah!! It actually looks quite good and I am pleased with it and thankfully Darcey likes it.

I have frogged two other things I had on the needles, one because I just wasn't happy with it and the other because I am sure the pattern is wrong.!!
I have now started a waistcoat with a furry collar for Amber, it is a sirdar pattern with cables and it is looking nice I am doing it in some Debbie Bliss merino aran I won on ebay a while ago, I will try to get a picture of the pattern for my next post. Jade also wants one, I haven't knit big sizes for a while so I shall definately be starting something for Gracie as well so I can keep getting a quick fix of a fast

Hubby's boxing club hosted a big show last night, so as I couldn't go I had a friend round and we had an indian takeaway and good chat, haven't done that for ages so it made a nice change. Joe boxed last night and he won which was good.

I shall now try and do a bit more knitting before they come back from Joe's football training.x

I am quickly editing this post to add a picture of the waistcoat I am doing now,
