I still wasn't feeling all that well last week, so I decided enough was enough and got a blood test at the Doctors. Turns out I'm very anaemic. I'm taking loads of iron tablets and the Doc is trying to find out what is causing it.
I had a chat with my lovely boss and we decided that it was best for me to stay at home and get better. Stop soldiering on and just rest. She even gave me instructions to 'sit down and knit'.
How nice is that?
I've done a bit but to be honest, I've not even felt like knitting, so in the main I've been dozing under the blanket.
My lovely neighbour gave me these tulips to cheer me up.
I am slowly making this jacket from Designer/Vogue Knitting.
I first saw the magazine whilst at knitting group in January and I think it's fair to say I was speechless!
It is lovely and my favourite thing - cables.
It soon became apparent however, that it would be very expensive to make. It's a chunky yarn, so I set off on a internet trawl to see what I could find.
Eventually I came up with Jarol Sweet Briar Chunky. I've used Sweet Briar Double Knit before, so took a chance and ordered it.
Where did you get it from? I hear you cry.
Good old Kemps.
Should have tried there first! It came in at £22.00 instead of the £80 + that others would have been.
It is 70% acrylic 30% wool with a lovely squoosh.
A nice simple pattern not too much concentration needed.
I sent off my Phoenix Friendship Squares for last month.
More cables! Three this time, as a parcel had gone astray to this partner in the past so I made an extra one.
That's about it, I think.
I'm off to have a quiet time.
As always, have fun.
Bye for now...........................Clicky Needles.
