One wip is finished

 'Glad' is finished. In the pattern they have it tied around the breast area - which I think looks dumb.
The front pieces are quite wide - so they don't easily tie. I will probably wear it more like one of the photos below.

 Anyway  - the Rowan Kidsilk Haze is gorgeous and it is soft and warm. Perfect.
Not too much progress on the socks - about a centimetre I would guess. Still I have now started on the heel.

Wips, wips, wips

 I usually try not to have more than one project on the go because I fear I won't finish any. However I now have 3 on the go - mainly because some are easier to knit when watching TV and others need more concentration - so for those I do them when listening to the radio.
The one above is obviously one of the TV ones - it's a hooded jacket for a baby for my niece's second born. I made one for her first born and it has been a success so it seemed fair to do another.

Below is the final stages of my Glad cardigan. I have kind of blocked it - I think. I really have no idea. But anyway next is to sew some seams and do a little edge.
 And lastly is my 'needs concentration' project - the Nightingale socks.  Well you can now see a nightingale!

 The Glad cardigan is progressing - back and one sleeve completed.

And now I've started on another project - the Nightingale Socks - pattern and yarns form Vintage Purls
I'm hoping the link below will show the pattern - but not sure because it is Ravelry and you may need to be a member. Anyway - you will be able to see the nightingales as I progress. It takes a bit of concentration so it is good to have the cardigan for more mindless knitting (and TV watching)
