top-down cardigan ta-da!

Hello Dear Friends!
Yes,I did it! I have managed to knit a wearable top-down cardigan. Unfortunately my Little Man had an accident just after I finished it and put it on, so I am happy to finish it but not so happy because my Little Man got injured. A fishing hook came in his finger and we had to go to hospital to have it removed. He had a  tetanus injection too. He is well and enjoying playing with his toys now.

I wish you  happy holiday season. Gaia.
Note: The pattern for this cardigan can be found here.

I am knitting!

Hello Dear Friends,
I am just popping in to say that I am knitting....

When I  was browsing the  net ,I saw those lovely top-down cardigans and immediately fell in love with the design. That was three years ago when my son was born. Since then, I have tried and tried knitting one, and accomplished one that you can view it here. But it was nothing wearable. This time, I worked hard, I did rows and undid rows, I measured and calculated, most of the time I was near tearing but  hopefully I will end up with a top-down cardigan that will actually fit my son.Until then , I wish you all the best and hope to be back with a ta-daa post soon....Gaia.

Hello Dear Friends,
I have been away for a long time; I am ok but life got a bit hectic here, especially at work, so I had to work extra hours hence no time for crochet. It is not ' no crochet at all ' but I have no finished blankets or anything to show of my own. My lovely neighbour, though , managed to finish a granny ripple blanket. I am sorry for the quality of the photo but winter arrived in  Cyprus and because I am at work during daytime, I couldn't take a better one. So here it is:
The girl posing is my neighbour's daughter.The blanket is a Christmas present for my neighbour's niece, lovely Anastasia, who lives in Moldova.
 I wish for you and for my lovely neighbour who made this blanket, a Happy Christmas and New Year.
