Whilst it may seem that I have become obsessed with knitting my Roxborough Dolman with the luvinthemommyhood KAL, I have indeed been doing other things. Sadly this has mostly been looking after two little girls with tummy bugs. Luckily I think we have come to the end of a week stuck in the house….fingers crossed.
I managed to put down my Roxborough Dolman for approximately an hour (congratulations me) to finish off the little knitted skirt that I was making before Easter.
It had a little wash and block the other week so it needed was the waistband sewing up and inserting some elastic. Seriously it only took an hour, so it’s a bit naughty that I didn’t take the time to get it done!
As I hope with each new project I undertake, I pick up a new skill or stitch. This time around it was the bobble stitch. When Charlotte saw the heart taking shape she said to me ‘mummy, how did you make the dots?’…. thankfully they are really a lot easier to make than they look and are so effective and used in this way are oh so sweet!
Seeming as the weather is very much un-spring like I am sure that Charlotte will get plenty of wear from this little knitted skirt over the coming weeks
