FINALLY!!!! Some things to show from the last month. Just to prove that I HAVE been knitting in between the busyness.

1. Socks in Socka Fortissima Cactus colourway. I knit these on the knitting machine and it was reasonably straightforward and they fit as well as any other pair of handknit socks. I love the way the colours have turned out even though there isn't a drop of purple in sight.

2. Baby jumper knitted from James Brett Magiknit. Still to weave in a couple of ends and blanket stitch round the bottom and neckline.

3. Toddler jumper knitter from Jaegar baby Merino (pale blue) and my own hand dyed New Lanark wool in Lochs and Glens Colourway. Still need to knit the neckline and bottom ribbing. This was machine knit.

4. Kimono, made from Artesano Hummingbird. Managed to cast of the front band in the car this morning. Still to edge cuffs. I'm really pleased with the fit of this. Machine/hand knit.

5. Sideways knit sweater in Twilleys freedom spirit DK, pattern from the Twisted sister sweater book. Machine knit. Still need seaming, and handknit neck and bottom bands.

6. Baby dungarees. Need blocking then straps sewn on ... and I have the cutest buttons. Machine and handknit. Debbie Bliss Alpaca silk.

7. Spinning. Here are two skeins both are part merino part soy silk.

8. SSS -Here's a teaser of the whole thing, the final clue is released today ....

The socks are stunning. I'm envious of your productivity!

I think the baby dungarees are my favourite though :)
