Because it's mostly stocking stitch, I've been able to knit whilst watching the Olympics so it's been a quick knit and - look - last night I cast off the bottom and picked up the stitches for one sleeve from the waste yarn (it's a seamless construction).
On Monday, while DD2 was at her holiday club, DD1 and I went into Colchester to do a bit of shopping (she wanted a new game - another Sims add-on I think) and on the way back to the car park, we popped into Franklins, the local yarn/haberdashery shop to look for buttons. I didn't have my knitting with me, so I was going by eye, but I spotted these:
DD1 and I also went into the music shop to have a look at clarinets and she was able to have a try-out of the two models that her music teacher had suggested. Of course, the one that she preferred was the most expensive one, so I now know that it's going to cost me just over £800. The full price is a bit over £1000
There's not much else going on round here, to be honest, but I will show you these:
I'm off now to do the first sleeve of the cardigan and, if all goes to plan, I'll be back tomorrow with the finished thing (or Friday - depending on how long it takes to dry and if I can persuade DD1 to model it).
