Clickerty-clack

I can't get enough of knitting at the moment! I am seriously missing sewing but just can't get my backside off the sofa. I think B is getting a bit bored of me saying 'I know what I'm going to sew next' and then not doing any of it... I have masses on my 'to sew' list and zero motivation for it.



But, those knitting needles? Click, clack, click, clack. I'm in heaven!

I've finished this unborn childs second pair of shoes... I know, daft. I am fully aware that babies don't wear shoes, but those cute little bootie patterns - irresistible! (Saartje's Booties, ravelry link here). That's it though. I've moved on to some serious functional knitting.



I really wanted to knit the boy a cardigan. He likes cardigans over jumpers really, but I couldn't find a pattern I was happy with, so I have opted for the placket neck jumper from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I am knitting it in this super-soft Stylecraft 100% merino.




But, anyone have any ideas how to get me off this sofa and up into that sewing room?

i don't know whow to get you up but I'm very impressed with that jumper and especially impressed that you can balance your knitting on your tummy!

Don't have any great ideas, but I love the color combination on the cardigan :)

I love the red and turquoise together - they're so zingy. How I envy your knitty skills.

I know what you mean about the sewing - I seem to be making a slight return to crochet/knitting again too. I was half way through my first quilt and now it glares at me with unadulterated spite as I work away on a crocheted shawl...

I vote for you to stay put and keep up the delicious knitting - those booties are so sweet!
