Just for a change KNITTING !!!

Ok here is some knitting news for a change. Firstly my buys from Liberty.

my buys Posted by Picasa

These are the selection of wools I picked up, there are two Kid Silk Hazes, two balls of the same colour calmer and I can't remember what else. I also purchased the new Debbie Abrahams Blanket book which I had meant to pick up at Ally Pally and didn't get around to it. I have to say I will never ever complete one of those blankets but I do fantasise about Lithograph from Book one but at the end of the day I'm a realist and know my attention span isn't that long so maybe a cushion.

Well I added these new yarns to some I had already hoarded from a few other sources

Name those yarns lol
For the last couple of weeks I have been trying to reinspire myself knit wise so after seeing a lovely jumper Jacqueline had made I decided to try and start a quick knit sloppy unshaped jumper for myself.
So I reduced the number of yarns to these.

And here is the result so far of the front, I know that stripes aren't great for my shape but didn't want to do anything fussy and want to keep it really simple.

I fantasise about Lithograph as well - will probably never do it but we can dream can't we! Look forward to seeing the progress n the sock.

oh wow - I'm so honoured to have inspired you!! don't worry about the stripes (I know you're not - lol) they will all fade into one another once you're wearing the jumper. . .
