At the end of 2014 I showed you some of the knitting I was doing for KOGO
– Fair isle jumpers for little lads.

Bear and Lion KOGO

Well, like with most things that have mundane tasks associated with interesting ones (like plain knitting and fair isle) I’m full of good intentions but sometimes fall short of producing the goods.

As you no doubt have guessed knitting the backs and sleeves became a bit of a chore, so these were put to one side and promptly forgotten 😦

But look here – guess what happened over the past few weeks when I was having a bloggy break.   All the pieces came out and were stitched together, necks were added and hey presto!  These will be going to the charity come the cooler weather 🙂

And so I really don’t look like a loser I found enough browny coloured wool to do another along the same lines.  No actual pattern as size was from one set of instructions and the Koala chart from something else.  Just required a pencil and paper to do a bit of working out first and then some dedicated needle time.  Front and two sleeves finished now just the back to tackle.

And the book – looks like my reading mojo might have returned as well.  

First one for the year, Breath written by Tim Winton (Australian author).

Tomorrow (Wednesday) is going to be hot so I might be turning page 1 sometime during the day.  Glass of cool (anything) close by.
