Winds of change
There has been a significant change in the temps around here and it feels like Summer is Officially begun. It's getting hotter by the day. Ofcourse it also means a shift in the crafting medium. It's more of threads and cottons rather than other yarns.
The evenings are a bit cooler and it's nice for walks in the park and kids have a great time playing outdoors. Sadly this might last only for a couple of weeks and then it gets too hot to even step outside.
On the knitting front , things have been sort of adventurous. I had started out the February lady sweater as a KAL along with my online UAE knitting group and made a huge mess of it. The lace part was totally ruined in my hands and had to put it away. But then I decided to do the baby version of it - hoping it will help. So I'm already working at it. It's an Elizabeth Zimmermann pattern called 'Baby sweater on two needles' from Knitters
Almanac. I'm still at the yolk part and scared of the sleeve separation row. But I've had some really good advice and support from my online friends and hopefully I can tackle this one.
No pictures yet......just busy knitting and frogging !

Bravo!!! I hope that you are able to complete the baby version of the February Sweater coz it's so darn cute!!
Yeah, temps are getting higher as each day passes, good thing I can knit with the air-conditioning on:)

I made both, too. And I did the baby one first. It made the big one easier. I wanted to thank you for your nice comments on my blog so I nominated you for an award. Come and get it.

Rima, Thanks for cheering me on ! I'm still working on the baby version made a few mistakes but still managed to correct it and carry on. I too hope I finish it!

Susan, thankyou for visiting me and thankyou for the award. That is very sweet of you.
