I am back

As I promised I am back.I didn't work on this sweater much since I decided to move my youngest son to the bigger room. So I had to paint and clean and move lots of stuff.
Also I have to admit that I did take the right front stripe section apart after finishing the other one.They didn't end up looking the same.So much for an easy to follow pattern :-)Well it was not the pattern,it was me not paying attention and it's fixed now. is the beginning of the first sleeve.

The snow is falling again and as much as I would like to be it a beautiful sunny day I am ok.One more day at home without feeling guilty that I am neglecting my yard and garden.

Just a couple of things I wanted to add but never get to it before.

I love this reversible scarf.
It's from the book: Cables Untangled by Melissa Leapman.

This hat is a basic pattern with a color design I made up as I worked on it.

cable and lace wrap cardigan

From the book Baby Knits
by Lois Daykin
Using Mandarin Petit-100% egyption cotton with white crocheting string added to it and 4mm (euro size) needles.

It's going pretty well,the pattern is easy to fallow.

I am quite please with the texture and the color combination.Since I don't usually swatch and do not have the same material I wasn't sure about the size.I am following size 0-3 months instruction and it looks just right to me.

The days are nice and sunny here after what seemed like "forever" period of grey sky and cold air(and lots of snow).So I will be spending more time outside soaking in some sun and vitamin D but hope to post the finished project soon.
