I whizzed through the short rows after watching Cat Bhordi's you-tube video. I've used her videos in the past. I watch them with the volume down and I've found them really helpful. So now on to the last part. Rows and rows of stocking stitch. Easy peasy.
A couple of skeins of Malabrigo worsted arrived yesterday, one for a pixie hat for Tadhg. Shes nearly 6 and I think she actually might be a pixie when she grow up. She said "it needs to be really pointy and be able to tie under the chin". And a blue one for Dubhessa to knit herself a shrug. I'm thinking of a simple pattern in one piece knit in the round to the armpit then flat across the back. I trawled Ravery last night but couldn't find a good pattern, so we may have to wing it.
