Just a little more knittting....

Good morning all!
Thanks for joining the WOYWW blog hop and for calling in here to see what I have been up to.
I am sorry to say-  not much sewing room activity again, this week.
I will get back to it eventually. I seem to have had a few days of "event and activities".

We saw The Railway Man at the cinema and had lunch out last week.
Then my lovely son-in-law treated my daughter and me to tickets for the Strictly Come Dancing show at the Birmingham NIA. A totally brilliant night out and tea at Cafe Rouge!

Along with visitors and a funeral this week, I doubt I will be doing much crafting.
Of course Monday is my day spent with Annie and the twins - much fun and hilarity there each week!!

So, all you see on my table is the wool that I bought to continue a few little knitting projects.
One little cardi is finished and another is on the go.
The Crofter wool is for a little hoodie, I think.

Well, thats it for this week - see you next week.
Thanks for calling by.
Have a good week.
 x Jo

Blimey Jo, you must knit at the speed of light! I've never known anyone quite like you for whizzing up yet more delightful little cardis etc!! I love Crofter wool too, that colour way is lovely and will make a super hoodie.
How fab that you got to see Strictly in real life....we're they good? I really liked Abbey and Aljaz and was glad they won. What a happy day out that was for you!
Hugs, LLJ 38 xx

Oooh? Crafting and Strictly, two of my favourite things. Wish I had booked for the tour this year (been to most of them) but I having Lisa Riley as the hot put me off.
Lovely little cardis and I love that shade of green, so different for a little one.

Thanks for sharing, sometimes Life has to be lived in the real world. Our little spaces have to take a back seat every now and then. Pretty colors once again. Enjoy your company, hope your weather cooperates.

That wool looks so pretty. I have several projects of that kind on the go at the moment, things I can do in the evenings while watching TV. You are so lucky to get to the Strictly show. sorry to hear that you have to go to a funeral, but I hope the rest of the week makes up for that. xx Maggie #21

Your knitting is beautiful, and that yarn is simply yummy! Well, I must say, as a HUGE fan of Dancing With The Stars (here in the U.S.) I was so excited to read that you went to a Strictly Come Dancing event. Wow! Take care, and hugs! Sandy Leigh #80

Your knitting projects are so pretty. Love the colors. I've just recently learned to knit back in December. Finished a scarf. Tomorrow I go to another class for a hat and cowl. Brigita #92

Hi Jo, I went to a funeral this week too! Sad! He was only 32. A cardiac arrest after a bout of chicken pox! And my mom is in the hospital, so although I paint in the morning, not much crafting for me either!

Tertia said...

Saw the finished cardi's in the next post. Love the wool.
Sounds like you had quite a week lined up there.
Happy very belated WOYWW!

Love all the peachy pink yarn and those little sweaters are so awesome. You and Annie are blessed with swift fingers turning out those sweaters so quickly. Sounds like you had a great night out...we all need those from time to time! Thanks for sharing. Vickie aka Okienurse #53
