Stitch and Bitch

The Stitch and Bitch group I go to was on tonight. For the moment we are meeting every second Tuesday in Cafe Nero in St. Vincent St, Glasgow and every second Sunday in the Tramway Theatre Cafe. There were loads there tonight (about ten) and there was lots going on such as a spinning lesson from India, everyone cooing over Lillith's Kool Aid dyed Feather and Fan stole, and over my end at least, loads of Rowan patterns.
I wasn't really in the mood for knitting on my sock tonight, so I took some Rowan myself, my Fern cardigan from book 36. I think Rowan 38 is pretty dross really, so it sent me delving into the archives to find something wearable, and stash bustable. Behold; Fern wrapover cardigan by Kim Hargreaves, which threatens to still be quite fashionable this coming winter. I am knitting it in Jaeger Odessa which I bought from Black Sheep last time the HobbyCrafts Fair came to the SECC. So far it's easy but there is a bit on one of the front I'll have to mull over, I think it's something to do with making the ties for the wrapover. For the time being I have one back and 1/3 sleeve. Slow progress simply because I have so many other things on the go at the same time.

Hi Kathleen

I've been catching up on your blog and I really like that Jaegar bag. The stitch is really lovely and has given me a few ideas for some home furnishing projects I should get on with so Thank you.

Love the photos and always pleased to see them.
