Aran Sweater Finished


Well I have finished the Peach Aran sweater today it all sewn up this one has taken a little over 3 weeks where the other one which was 2 sizes smaller took 4 weeks so am either knitting more or getting faster lol
Am not sure what I will start next I got a pattern for a jacket which you can wear on a cold winters day it uses thick chunky yarn & is done on 8mm needles but getting the yarn here in the UK is not quite so easy unless you wish to pay a lot per ball.
I do have some Mint Green Aran yarn so may do a cardigan for my next big item, in the mean while I could do some dishcloths on the knitting front.
I do want to get some quilting items done & make a start on items for Christmas so will be doing some sewing more during the day for a little while & just doing any knitting in the evening.
Our weather is still all over the show & while it warm we not really seeing summer yet hope we get one as so far we haven't had it well I hope that this finds you all well & your family take care & thank you for reading my Blog

I didn't know you had a blog.
Will look forward to hearing about your next project when you decide what it will be.
Hugs,
