The Ilga Leja patterns came today – four new ones plus some old ones that I was out of stock of. Ilga’s patterns are so beautiful, I wish I had the time to knit them!
A set back with my Veronica cardigan. I had placed the pocket lining and was gaily knitting up the left front when it hit me! I was using the wrong size needles – I have had to undo it all and will start it again tonight. The back is on the right size needles – thank goodness!!
It has been cold here again and I could scratch my fingers to pieces.  I have discovered a piece of starched net curtain is very good to scratch with!  The chilblains hurt when my hands are cold, and once my hands are warm, the itching begins. I had to get up in the night and put them under the cold tap to cool them down.
Now I am going to cast my left front on again……..back tomorrow!
