Corrina's Friday Night with Friends

It’s great to join in with you all for Friday Night with Friends.  I’ve joined Lynette Anderson’s mystery block of the month button club - Chateau Hexagon and last night I worked on my first block.  My eyes wouldn’t stay open any longer before it was finished though so I’ve sat in the sunshine this morning and finished it - yay!  I’m so pleased with it and I’ve got month two already so I’m keen to work on that one now.  Here it is:

My faithful friends are never far away and here they are supervising:
I’m also doing some knitting and I did a few rows last night too.  I haven’t knitted for myself for years and years but I saw a pattern for a vest that I really liked and it’s knitted with chunky wool on big needles so I thought I’d give it a go.  If you would like to look at the pattern just Google Patons Inca Book 1294 (it's the one on the front cover).  It’s knitted in strips and this is what I’ve done so far:

It has quite a cool quilted look to it.  I actually can’t knit for too long as I find it really hard on my hands with the big needles so it’s just as well that it knits up really quickly.  It’s going to be super warm when it’s finished.  Here’s hoping that I actually get it finished before winter is over.

I hope you enjoyed your evening as much as I did and I’m looking forward to looking at what you've been doing.  I always find it greatly inspiring.
