The first one is an aran pattern from Sirdar. I chose Rowan Pure Wool DK in navy blue for this and I've made it in the 12 - 18 months size. Number two is a big lad for his age and there's no point in making something he will grow out of within a few weeks.

I took this second photo to show the pattern detail. The colour is a true navy, as in the first piccie, not this paler colour!!
I want to get some more of this yarn to make a hat to go with it. I think it should be nice and cosy for the autumn. Of course if I'm right and it is too big it may be autumn 2012!!!!
This afternoon I've been nursing my oh so sore back. Having spent yesterday staggering around as little as possible with a walking stick. I saw the osteopath this morning and although it's better than it was, it's still quite sore. I decided to spend some time playing with some yarn and a crocket hook. I have been following Suz's inspirational blog and tried her spike stitch motif.
Suz has started a spike stitch group on ravelry with a Friday project. The first is to make a cushion cover using a spike stitch design and she has given instructions.
This is my first attempt............
