WIP Wednesday Aidez

Aidez

This is the back of Aidez. I am really only working on it on weekends, I'm training for the City2Surf, a 14km run. So most days after work, I go for a run, cook dinner, eat, and by then am a little tired to focus on knitting a big project. In the evenings I'm working on crochet squares for a blanket. I am enjoying knitting Aidez when I do it though, the cables are fun and it's growing fast!

On the weekend I went to my Mum's local craft store. It had a great selection of books and patterns. As I still haven't decided on a fair isle jumper, I was looking for a pattern for that, and I found a great one in Cleckheaton 950. Unfortunately, I can't find a photo of it online, but I'll take one later. It's quite Christmassy, which is exactly what I was looking for!

Even though I feel like I haven't been knitting much recently, tomorrow I get to do it at work! I work at a school, and the students are working on knitting squares for Wrap with Love, a charity that makes blankets out of donated squares. I'm going to check it out, and maybe help some students to cast on. I'm looking forward to seeing the kids knit!

The back is lovely, but I had a look at the pattern link, and such a shame I don't like the front: I like buttons to keep me done up & warm in the winter :-)

I love all those cables! I might have to make something like this. It would be an excellent at-work sweater.

Those are some delicious cables! And I hope you have a good time helping with the casting-on and square-making. :)

What a lovely sweater it will be when it's done. The colour should go perfectly with pretty much anything!

Oh wow, good luck with your 14km run, hopefully this will be me next year. It's an awesome feeling you get when running.
I love this idea of teaching the kids to knit for charity. A great way to get the kids involved with community.
