Baby Knitting

I thought you might like to see what I have been working on, My friend asked me if I would do some knitting as her daughter is having a baby. This is the first of the knitting the pattern is by Sirdar no 1815 and the wool is double knitting by Debbi Bliss, I had enough left over to make the hat and booties. I am sorry the picture is not very good this was the best I could get, its a difficult colour to photograph its a sort of gray blue, it worked up well. I am currently working on another cardie and then lining a basket for the baby items. All this and in between still knitting a lace cloth which I am now on round 156 only another 45 rounds to do, then it will be put into my esty shop.
The weather here is not good, at present we are having a hail storm, its very windy and between the showers the sun peeks out, not very warm either in the wind. I know the gardens need the rain and we should not complain but why cant it rain at night and have sunshine in the day time. Trouble is we are never satisfied are we? The farmers are crying out for rain saying that the vegetables and crops will be expensive due to the lack of rain, funny when we have a lot of rain the vegetables and crops go up in price, and when we have snow and ice they say they cant get the vegetables and crops out of the ground so the price goes up, but they never come down. Just another excuse for putting up the price.
Rant over,

I hope you are all keeping well and have a nice weekend.
Take care
