Along the James River Progress

Just a quickie post to update you on my pre-stitching progress - my colonial scene is growing steadily and I've started building my house.

The knitting project I'm focusing on at the moment is a jumper for Rosie,  she asked me to knit her one at the end of the Easter holidays so we took a trip over to Baa Ram Ewe and she chose a pattern and the wool.  The big surprise was that the wool wasn't pink!  Unfortunately I the size I started knitting proved to be too small so I had to rip back and restart.

That is such a pretty project, and it looks like fun too - lovely stitching. It's a shame you had to restart the jumper, but it's looking great.

Oh my gosh, that James River piece is stunning! I'm in love! Love what Rosie chose for you to knit her as well.

Wow, your James River is just gorgeous. I can't wait to see the jumper and sorry you had to rip and start again but that just means it's got extra love stitches...lol

I like Rosie's choice of colour and your stitching project is a very pretty design - it looks very detailed. I'm looking forward to a visit to Baa Ram Ewe in August as I hear they have opened a new shop in Harrogate.
