Back on the needles

Mum and Dad have set forth on a great caravan adventure leaving Amelia, Big-P and me here at home to play house for two weeks! It’s raining so heavily and the earth smells like patchouli oil which I once despised but since living here it now makes me think of rain and dripping green gardens.
This afternoon I drove over to Suzette’s and while Amelia and Jasmine toddled around showing each other various toys, we discovered that both of our next knitting projects happen to be Evie from the Rowan Junior book (such a good book!).

Evie was the project that my Grandma started but decided after a few rows it was going to be way too much for her to get through – 4ply on 3mm needles. Yikes! It may be too much for me! But Suzette suggested that we both do an Evie knit-along which I jumped at. I have all the yarn sitting there (Rowan 4ply soft) but I am so glad to have the motivating force of another – more experienced – knitter to help me start out and to keep me going with it. It seems a daunting task indeed. I have also just borrowed Suzette’s copy of Rowan’s Ribbon Twist Collection – which is full of gorgeous goodies.
