What I have knitted in the last week or so!

This lovely little cable sweater can be found on www.tahkistacycharles.com There is also a hooded jacket version and a gorgeous little helmet to match.










I used Panda Angoretta in white. I did adapt the pattern a bit - inside the diamonds was a moss stitch pattern - and it was so fiddly to do, so I kept all the background in reverse stocking stitch - and it looks better IMHO!!!









The little jacket is leftover skeins of
Red Heart S/Saver in Summer Breeze, and Caron Simply Soft in Pink and Cream. The little hand buttons I got from Dave Rundell (daverun on ebay)











This hat is a very simple pattern I got on the net www.knittingabout.com/library/nrollbrim.htm

I used eyelash yarn and some left over 8 ply in Teal blue.

The knitting has slowed down somewhat over the pre-Christmas period - I am so glad to be back to normal - house is clean, and tidy. We had to take down the Christmas tree- well the cats knocked it over - so it was easier to put it all away rather than start again from scratch!!

Love the white sweater....your tree is down? I am so jealous. I want my house back, but we have one more Christmas to go on New Year's Day....the soonest my daughter and family could get here. The tree is getting tired.
