Easy Sunday

        A seed hidden in the heart
of an apple is an orchard invisible.
-Welsh proverb.

I'm having a fairly
cushy day today.
Pixie and Cory are at gokarts,
Brandon has a friend over
and me....I am having
a sewing day.

Last night I stitched up the
black cardigan I knitted while on
I had already made this cardigan in
grey and loved it so much, I had to knit
it again in black. My winter wardrobe
centres around black, so I felt that
this cardigan would mix and match.

I have used 8 ply wool and really
enjoyed casting on about 285 stitches
and knitted like mad. The bottom part of
the cardigan is K5, P5, with a crocheted
cord to finish it off. I am a bit
annoyed with myself as I have forgotten
what knitting book I found this pattern in. I will try to retrace my steps and find
the title of the book.

On Saturday I went for a visit to the
lovely Op shop in town and found....
I couldn't believe my eyes. A huge reel of
sock wool. I suppose there are going to be
lots of grey socks around this house!
I found 2 books plus the wool for $4.00.

I also went to visit Bev and exchanged a
paper bag challenge with her. We
have exchanged paper bags with fabric, ric rac
or lace, and 5 buttons. We will make each
other something nice.
I can't wait to see what we both come
up with.

Today is the last day of my holidays and
I'm looking forward to going back
to work. I love staying home and I love
my job, so I have best of both

Hope you all have a great week and take care. Kind regards, Anita.

Your cardigan looks amazing - I always lean towards black in winter as well - such a classic colour! Looks like you did well at the Oppy - I never seem to have your sort of luck.
