And then there were two


Another waistcoat is off the needles.  I am hoping that  I can find some buttons when I go into town today, so these can be finished and worn.

Both were knitted using James C Brett Marble Chunky.  I like the effect this yarn gives, and am hoping that, if I can find one dark enough, I can persuade DS1 to have a jumper in something other than black.  Being chunky, it knits up fast so shouldn't take long to do one in his size.

Over the last couple of weeks, I have stocked up on some quilting accesseries.  I now have a ruler for cutting squares, one for triangles, and a 1/4" foot, so am hoping that I can attempt a BOM.  You will be the first to know if it was successful, or not, as the case may be.

Good Dday Jane, I am catching up again. I see your lovely clown quilt is done. Very well done. I am sure the boys will like it. Your shimmering pink sweater is also very pretty. And of course your newest sweater is super. I love the colors of this one. Take care Hugs Judy

Marble Chunky is fab ... pills a bit, but it can't be beaten for the price.

They do a black/grey one ... ;o)
