Rainy Sunday

Yep, it's raining. Again. I know Ireland is lovely and green, but for God's sake it's halfway through May and my flesh hasn't seen a bit of sun! Summer my arse.

I've been plugging away at the February Lady Sweater and finally have enough done to show:

Not bad, huh? It's slow going because of the vast stitch count required to cover my over ample bosom, but I like it. I've always loved the baby sweater so was thrilled when I discovered this pattern. The yarn is a nice colour too; nice and summery (hint hint weather!). I've no chance of getting this done in time for the anniversary party I wanted to wear it to, but you never know. I may get a shot of knitting speed back and get it done. Maybe.
Nothing much else to report. I've done no sewing since, but I did buy Sewing for Dummies, since I need all the help I can get :) I hope to attempt something new soon. Once of the girls at my knitting group has a pattern for a handbag I thought might be fun.
And that's your lot!
To the commenter Rainbow, who asked where I got the peg bag pattern from:
I have no email address for you to reply individually so here goes.
It's in a special edition of Womans Weekly magazine, Craft Special 2009 which was published in February. You can actually still buy copies of it here

Lovely colour for your FLS. You are really getting into knitting Zimmerman stuff these last few posts!

Hiya, I found you through Tara's blog and thought I'd come over and say 'hello'. That's a beautiful colour for your FLS! I, too, have recently fallen in love with EZ patterns and this one is definitely one of my faves!

Hope the sun comes over your way soon! We're in a drought over here, and I still get sick of the rain in no time. hehe.

I know what you mean about the weather. It's like Spring is a month late! Bring on the sun, already!

The FLS looks great. I hope you get a shot of knitting speed and can wear it to your party!
