Plodding slowly

We’re having a very out-of-routine few weeks at the moment, so very little is getting done on the knitting front.  As I’d already picked up the stitches for an armhole for the Virgo Vest one evening, I managed to knit the armhole band in the car yesterday. So, as you can see, I have the neck band and one armhole band completed.  Don’t hold your breath, but I’ll get there in the end.

I’m already thinking about what I’m going to design when this vest is completed.  The plan is for a small lace bag (what is it with me and lace?) worked in a cotton/linen blend.  When on a trip into town on Monday, I visited Clegs on the off chance that I’d find the sort of thing I was after.  Having failed in my search on their website, due no doubt to my lack of skills, while wandering the shelves I managed to find some Katia Linen.  “Ooooh!”, I exclaimed, and purchased it at once.  Stay tuned for further updates.
