Can't stop progress

Look what I finally got done! It's the back of the cabled tunic for JEC. Yeah, it was due last October, but I've done the back, the sleeves and 1/3 of the front. It's so nearly there. Um, yeah, there is a tide mark where I left the knitting for several months but I reckon it'll block out - right?








And this, Baby Blues Hat.

Recognise the yarn? You might if you read this post.

Ms Spider gave me the scraps of the Socksual Healing yarn. It's divine.

I used some more of it in the yoke of a baby jacket last night, but found the colour I was teaming it with didn't work. More unravelling this morning *sigh*. Into the yarn compost for the time being, I think, to be used to enrich another project at a later date.

I'm impressed with the cable project. I love cables but I give up too easily. My cable scarf is now on its fourth start and is moss-stitch.

forgot to say that the patient has.. miraculously appeared to have beaten the cancer! i think it was that yarn, whichever baby gets that hat will NEVER get a cold ever...

You what! Beaten the cancer? Must be a combination of good yarn, healing colours and knit with love. I knew knitting could cure cancer!

The Anti-Cancer Foundation totally needs to hear about this new cure! I'm sure that it's far less painful that radio- or chemo- therapies.

Taph, I agree, a knitting belt sounds vaguely sexual in a dominatrix kinda way. I've had a couple of puzzled comments about the knitting belt so I'm going to post the paragraph out the of the knitting history book I got it out of - although I'm sure you already know all about knitting belts, really ; )

Beautiful cables - keep going, you're nearly there! - and so glad to hear the cancer has gone away. Bodes well for my friend with breast cancer and the Heart Scarf...
