knit-a-long in progress

No pictures today, and no links either, because it's Sunday afternoon and I'm feeling lazy. Leon has gone back to bed and I'm writing this and then I'm going to go finish spinning some green alpaca.

The Richmond knitters are doing two knit-a-longs this month, one is Owls and the other Skew socks. I'm sort of participating in both. I've already made a grown-up Owls, but am currently knitting a little one for my nephew, who is having a birthday in a couple of weeks. I'm using Bendigo Woollen Mills luxury, and it's a lovely yarn. While I was waiting for that to arrive I cast on for a Hap blanket that needs to be done by early July, for Elise's birthday. It's green (like everything else at the moment). I've finished the centre of it, now I just have to do the lace around the outside.
The jumper is going really quickly, one of the many reasons I love baby jumpers. That and the cuteness of it all. I'll probably be able to post finished pictures before the end of the week. I'm going to have loads of yarn left over, so I'll make an Owls hat too.

Now, before I spin I think I'll have a piece of pineapple upside down cake and read for a bit.
