Before this month comes to an end I wanted to show you what I have been working on in March.
It has been a busy month.Our younger son has been to visit twice,moved to live and work in Berlin,Germany with his dad helping to move his family belongings.
It was elder son's 37th birthday this week and I have been attending hospital and doctor appointments.
I have concentrated mostly on Little Moreton Hall #2,the result of which is a page finish.One of four pages.
I was here on the 28th Feb
This is one page done
I have stitched more since I took the second photo.That will be for next time.
I have a tiny bit of stitching on my Peppermint Pig.An incomplete motif and the start of another little pig.
It is not that this one has not been calling me,it has but I have had concentration issues recently,mostly due to feeling rather under the weather.

This is the knitting section.
My completed Sockhead Cowl knitted with Stylecraft Head Over Heels 4ply yarn in the Snowdon colourway.It is a free Boho Knits pattern found on Ravelry.
I have really enjoyed wearing this cowl in the cold weather.I am definitely going to knit another one.
I started a DK weight hat which will have a cable pattern.It is called
Clever Cables designed by Stitchnerd.This design is also on Ravelry and one which I purchased.
I can show the knitting I mentioned in my last post because I have given it to grandson Alexander's mummy and daddy.It is a
Flax-Light Jumper designed by Tin Can Knits.Knit with Sirdar Snuggly 4ply yarn in the Bubba colourway.It is a free design and can be found on Ravelry.
I love the panels of garter stitch down each sleeve.It makes a plain jumper more interesting.I knitted the whole jumper with circular needles. I am very proud of this finish because I actually managed to get my gauge right before I started the jumper,something I have found difficult in the past.
This is a stocking stitch sock with a patterned heel flap knit with
Stylecraft Boho 4ply sock yarn and the colourway is Danube.
Are you still with me!!Thank you.This is a long post... I am knitting two more blankets with yarn from my stash.This one is the Hayfield Baby Sparkle Blanket knitted in Hayfield Baby Sparkle DK yarn.I cannot remember the colour.I knitted this pattern twice before and it is a favourite.
Finally,this blanket is knit in Stylecraft Life Aran in the Cardinal colourway. I am knitting another, new to me, pattern.It is a four row repeat and very easy to follow.I love the way is looks.I am knittng the body of the blanket in stocking stitch but I wanted something decorative for the top and bottom.
The pattern is from the Waffle Blanket designed by Alexis Layton who is on Ravelry. This is one of her free patterns.
Thank you so much for visiting and staying to the end.I will see you next month when I hope to have caught up on blog reading myself.
