I’m working on the Faith cardigan from Kim Hargreaves’s Heartfelt Collection. This is the hem trim. Isn’t it pretty? The pattern is a six row repeat, which makes it ideal for picking up and putting down in spare moments. But I’m a pretty slow knitter, so expect to see a final make just in time for Summer 2012!
I have simmering pre-Christmas panic. Not only do I still have presents to buy, but I have two writing deadlines to meet before the break and a lot of writing to do over the break. (The wooden pebbles were bought in Cornwall and are kept as talismans on my desk. Their warm, smooth surfaces are perfect for handling when deep in the ‘What the hell do I do with the next chapter?’ angst.) For writers, Christmas isn’t really a holiday – it’s just a nice chunk of time to get some writing done in between the fun. But don’t worry, there will be FUN!
