A bit of this and a bit of that

During this past week, I found it difficult to settle to one thing for any length of time. That also includes my housework - well, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
I made some progress on my Alpine Seasons Garden by completing what is currently an outer border and I've just started to fill it. I can already see that my progress on this is going to vary quite alot, week on week. I think there will be times when I have to remind myself that some progress is better than none.

It's ages since I've done any knitting and having seen some jumpers that my sister-in-law knitted recently, I got the knitting bug again. Here is my limited progress on a cable knit sweater. If it's not finished for this winter, at least I'll have it for next.


  1. Alpine Garden is growing well. And your new knitting project already looks very promising. Vrey nice colour.

  2. Oh, Alpine Garden is looking prettier with each post! And I love the color of your knitting project--I so wish I knew how to knit!

  3. Lovely knitting Mary, nice pattern.

  4. Alpine Garden is beautiful Mary, and I love your new knitting start, such a pretty colour and pattern

  5. Well all your stitching (no matter the needle type) is beautiful as always. But I completely understand being unable to settle. I get like that frequently. Currently I'm just done in by work and travels. Maybe next week..... I say hopefully.

  6. Alpine Garden is gorgeous Mary. It is going to be absolutely stunning.

    Lovely start on the knitting. I need to get back to my blanket!
