Weekend knitting and stitching

By the time Friday night came around I was more than happy to collapse into my chair to take part in Friday Night With Friends, hosted by the lovely Cheryll over at stitching cubbyhole.
I decided it was high time I finished Lily's cardigan, I didn't have much left to do, just the front bands and the finishing. By the end of the evening I had a competed cardigan so I was very pleased :-)
I used the Carousel pattern by Lisa Chemery again - this is the fourth time I've used this design. It is made on circular needles, starting at the neck, and all in one piece and I find it a quick and easy knit.
Thank you, as always, Cheryll for hosting us on Friday night. It's always nice to stitch along in the company of cyber buddies from near and far :-)
My daughter in law sent through some photos of my latest toddler slippers - I'd given them away without taking a photo, so here they are.
I love the jaunty photos she took!
I've decided I've done more than enough knitting for a while. Last night after dinner I 'fidgeted and fiddled' while we were watching TV, tidying the sideboard next to my stitching chair and putting my knitting and yarn things away for now. Needles paired up and into their packets, patterns in a folder, stitch markers, row markers, darning needles, crochet hooks and so on all away. Dusted and polished.
Satisfied, I gave the MOML a bit of peace and quiet and settled into some applique.
I'd started another Foxley Village block before my latest knitting project and it was nice to get back to it again.
One bird stitched down, two tacked and ready to stitch tonight.
You can visit Cheryll and see what other Friday Night Friends got up to *here*.
I'm hoping for a bit of machine sewing time after lunch today - just wondering which project to tackle first - the choices are endless!
'til next time,
happy stitches,
