Sekrit project number one (and an update on the red cardigan)

The first sekrit project is what many partners of knitters will have been given today, the heart from Knitty. This was loads of fun to knit, and small enough that R didn’t even notice that for a couple of evenings, every time he looked in my direction, my hand ‘happened to’ cover what I was knitting. The yarns are Dream in Colour Smooshy in dark red, and Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Valentine – luxury sock yarns for a luxury heart :-)

And I’m continuing to make progress on the red cardigan, which now just hits my hips, although there’s a way to go still on the body. The current plan is to knit to the minimum acceptable body length, and then switch to the sleeves, then switch back to the body to keep knitting until I run out of yarn.

(My mirror is now slightly cleaner than it was last time, but I can’t figure out how to get it not to smear.)
