I do do knitting on occation too.

I seem to have got into this terrible habbit of casting on things and then not getting round to finishing them. Right now i have two bags, one large blanket, one sock and two baby blankets (for my special project which i will tell you about after. Out of these things onely one is even halfway through. I blame my sister for teaching me the one needle cast on method lol.
In the last few weeks i have managed to finish two items. The first is what i call my fraggle scarf. I love the colours on this and its really soft i wish i could say that i enjoyed knitting it though.

This next one i am really pleased with, it's a little SKBU body warmer. It's the first time i have had a go at clothes so to speak, i know there are no sleeves but i had to make buttong holes and do shaping which i haven't really done before. The body warmer has buttons on the shoulders so that it can be put on the baby without distrubing any tubes and wires there may be. It is really soft as i did it in snowflake and it only took about 18 hours of knitting time over four days which for me is great.
