Feels like it has been a while

Hi Boys

Feels like it has been a while since I have spent any time here - Don't you hate it when work gets in the way of your social life. Still been managing to squeeze in some knitting late at nights. Sadly though our knitting group seems to have fallen over this winter, too many of the gang have headed to the Northern Hemisphere for summer.

Finallly finished my boys 4ply jumper and it fits him perfectly... haven't got a shot of him in it yet but I will post one.

Also made a quick little cotton top for my niece. I found this 70s pattern in the local Op shop.

I'll try and get here more often again! promise

That top is really interesting Paul. Sideways garter stitch?

Yes - simple to the point of almost being boring but a good quick knit. Embarassing to say but this is the first time I have used more than one colour...taught me a lot. :)

They look great. I'm especially interested by the neck of your boy's jumper. Very nice! Did you follow a pattern?

Very nice knitting, Paul. I hope the lad enjoys it very much. Your niece, too. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.

Rod's jumper looks great. What brand yarn did you use?
