Ivy growing


I've had this book on my book shelf for months, and although I've picked it up and read the first page a few times, just never really been grabbed by it! I started to read it again properly last week and I have to say, this time I am gripped!!! Its brilliant! Although I do have to admit to falling asleep a little uneasily for the past few nights...........its quite eerrie:-)
On the knitting front, I'm getting there, finally, with Ivy!! The second front is almost complete, only the ties left to knit and then the finishing off.



I think it looks good on Lizzy, she's a bit smaller than my sister is but I'm sure the fit is fine.I hope my sister likes it! And that it was worth waiting three months after christmas to finally receive it!!!!!!
I've a ten day stint at work starting tomorrow, but am hoping to finish it between shifts and get some finished piccies up, maybe even modelled if I'm lucky:-)

Thank you for your visit and good wishes. I did a little knitting for my children and grandchildren but never anything as wonderful as what I see here.

That is a svelte piece of knitwear if ever I saw one...

Nice Ivy-in-progress! Found you on following comments over at Ms. Knitbert's ;)

I'm glad to read your comments about The Historian - I picked up a copy a couple of weeks ago. Now I just have to find a time to slot it in amidst Knit the Classics picks!

Ivy is looking lovely in the cathay terri. I will have to root through my stash and see if I have anything suitable.
