I have a finish, finally I have decided on my summer top bands, I followed the design but only did 6 rows of moss stitch instead of 8, I had a tiny bit of yarn left over. It fits well and looks good, I love the bright colour. The back neck is a bit lower than the front.
The only thing left to do is the button on the back, I have sewn the top half of the flap together and will sew buttons on, this will ensure it does not pull when I am wearing it. I have to get some buttons, not easy to do online, I still have not put buttons on my recent cardigan finish, I will try to get some in the village next week.
The best bit of this project is I have had no sewing together, it was knitted on the round, the shoulder seams were knitted together before casting off. The neck and arm bands were knitted on the round, so all I have had to do is sew in ends.
On Wednesday I had George whilst Will went swimming, hubby was out so some 1 to 1 time, later we all had lunch at Darcy's with the government 50% off, a quick walk around the market and then back to ours to play, and more coffee, both boys are lovely and gives us so much joy.
I am staying at home for a few days, yesterday I had a sore throat and cough, runny nose, so I've a summer cold, probably caught from George, who has had a runny nose for a week. I feel better this morning, but I am still coughing, you know the annoying lingering cough, so I have decided not to go anywhere until the cough is better., can you imagine me walking in the village coughing, I would start a panic wave. Again I found myself double checking everything, no temperature, the cough is not constance, I can still taste my food, so a few days at home without visitors. I did cancel friends popping over yesterday, we can get together next week, life is just so strange, and it's not going to improve much anytime soon.
