2015 WIPocalypse - April Full Moon

I didn't post last week because I had been away on a family history conference and the do on Saturday night coincided with the clocks changing, so what is normally a very late night became a very early morning.  By the time I got home again and got caught up with myself, I thought I might as well leave posting until this week because the conference week didn't produce much in the way of progress.  And yesterday was Easter Sunday, which meant a family get-together and late coming home, so here I am today.

This is what I have achieved over the last two weeks on Baby Express.  I have stitched the relevant section of the train tracks, but not back stitched them.  I have also done most of the last section of border, but need to fill in the white dots with a pale blue thread.  Baby will be two months old next week so I really need to crack on with this.

This picture shows that I am working on the heel flap of Hermione's Everyday Socks.  I'm reasonably convinced that I have made a mistake and done the heel flap the wrong side out, but never mind - let's call it a design feature.  I have actually done a lot more work on this sock today, but you will have to wait to see that.

And finally the Cabled Hand Warmers have made an appearance.  Since I got back from conference, I have done about four cable repeats on this piece.  I do need to measure it again, but I think that I am not far off finishing the cabled section.  I'll look good wearing alpaca hand warmers in the middle of summer :-)

In other news, I haven't been to Slimming World for two weeks.  Whether I get there this week will depend on the car situation as it needs some more work doing on it.

Back to work tomorrow, so here's all the best to you and yours and may the frog steer well clear of your needles.


  1. Baby Express is looking great, And your knitting is equally impressive.

  2. Well done on your progress

  3. Baby express is looking great - if I recall correctly, it should be only one more wagon to go, and the rest of the border should stitch up fairly quickly as well. Nice progress on the knitting front, I love the colors on those socks :)

  4. Baby Express is adorable. Keep working. It will be a great keepsake.
