Cast on Friday... Not got the same ring to it...
That last one had my Mum, Dad and dogs in the background if you're keen eyed (or click on it to make it bigger!) Anyway, I doubt anyone is interested, but if you like forts, the full album is here
Back to knitting, I did my gauge swatch for the central park hoodie, and I got 18 stitches and 26 rows per 4 inches, rather than 17 and 24. But since I'm somewhere between a size 36 and 38, I've decided to go with my gauge and knit a size 40.... I hope it works out ok. But since I've had no time at all, I've got about 4 rows done so far.
And I realised that since my gauge swatch is a square, I can donate it to Knit-a-soc (my Uni knitting society) for their snuggly square drive, which they're using to make blankets for the elderly. I need to make some more of those as well!
