Oh, Ailbe!

I was planning a relaxing hour with my knitting, but Ailbe beat me to it.  At least it proves that the aran cable throw I’m currently knitting is going to be nice and comfy.


I’m knitting the throw with two strands of aran weight yarn on 5.5mm circular needles.  There’s a garter stitch edging with cables alternately every ten rows.  I’m looking forward to finishing it, when Ailbe wakes from his nap!

The Fenton Knitting Group will be meeting tonight at The Barn in Fenton from 6pm till 7pm.  Bring along your Christmas knitting or sewing projects, share your hopes and dreams for 2015 and knit the post-Christmas blues away.  And if all that doesn’t whet your appetite – tonight’s cake is Blackforest Gateau, handmadebysoo of course!

My current knitting project is an aran cable throw.  I’m knitting it in rows on 2 circular needles because of the huge number of stitches.  I soon won’t be able to lift it so you may find me marooned on the sofa at some point, cocooned in aran wool.  How lovely!
