I'm linking up today with Janine of Rainbow Hare Quilts with an update on my yarn projects.
I've finished the jumper for Isobel and it's looking good. That left me with time on my hands yesterday to dig to the bottom of my knitting bag and see what else was lurking there.
The card in the middle is Playful Stripes by Alana Dakos. The link is to her Ravelry page. I have knitted this before in a larger size for Alexandra and once the garment is washed and blocked it looks gorgeous. Only thing is that there are so many ends to tidy up!

The bottom photo is the unfinished lacy card for Isobel. The pattern had been started in 2012 for Alexandra then stayed at the bottom of the bag until last October. I pulled it out and continued knitting it, this time for Isobel, but I started the knitting in a different size. I only realised last Thursday and so 'frogged' the lot! Now I'm off again but this time in the right size, age 1-2 years. The yarn is Sirdar Snuggly baby Bamboo. It's 80% bamboo, 20% wool and lovely to knit with. The card has short sleeves and will be lovely over summer dresses.
Last and not least, (can you hear the trumpet fanfare?)… my crochet homework. Please don't laugh at my 2 granny squares….
I'm still working on getting my Ravelry link going in the side bar but this works in the meantime. I only wish I had discovered Ravelry sooner. So many projects not recorded.
Right, well that's it for my Wool on Sundays link, I'm off to cut out the block for my machine piecing class on Thursday and maybe some more Hummingbird blocks.
