What a Mess! Last week I went to take a photo of current projects for you and ended up in the biggest tangle. Finally managed to sort it out and take a shot so that you can see I am making progress on the Rowan All Seasons Cotton vest I am making for Gemma.

Yep here it is in all its glory. Actually I am a bit further along since I took this shot. I am up to the armhole decreases on front and back, have woven in all the ends and redone the bottom stocking stitch roll hem so that you can't see the colour change any more. I wonder if anyone knows a trick to frogging upwards from the cast on edge to re knit teh bottom. I does not unravel as easily as frogging from the top down. Anyway I managed it and I'm pleased I did because it looks much better.

I am dying to get to the Rare yarns knitalong wrap that I am doing with Princess Knitabulous -see her post 'Snap!' and Kerry. Of course they will all be finished (Kerry has) before I even get past two rows. It is because I am determined to finish Gemma's vest soon so she can wear it this season. 10 month olds grow so fast!

I'm busy making a giftie for my Secret Pal, working on common threads stuff with Donni, planning the millions I am going to make from embarking on a career in market stalls (!!??!).... and I'm not even mentioning the hilarious felted alpaca teddy that has been chewing up time. It has become hilarious to all but me.
