Just when you think you are in the home lap you notice a mistake. Can you spot it?

Over the last few weeks I have been busy with Nellie (also known as my MIL). When this lovely lady visits I tend to stop doing other things except in relation to my daughters. The that includes housework.

That said whilst she has been here this time I have finished doing the Sue Spargo September BOM and laid out this months, knitted a cowl as a Christmas gift for a friend, framed my Charley Harper needlepoint owl, knitted a sweater, hat and cowl for my Fiona (my own design as well) and got to the background on my second Lee kimono. This was all because Nellie is not able to get around as well as in the past so we have been rewatching Downton Abbey and Revenge on Netflix.

I am hoping to finish said kimono this weekend so I can start knitting Amanda an Aran sweater from a pattern I found at my local library in their resale section. I will be altering the ribs and also lengthing it as she is long in the body.
