We have been sorting out care and planning for our future again over the past few weeks, but I have at least had a chance to finish off some wip’s.
So back in the real world….
Finished my Harris shrug. Hadn’t really thought about this kind of garment before, and really think I have missed out on something vital to my warmth.
It is knitted here with my handspun wool, which I had dyed at a SpinDyeWeavers workshop a couple of years ago. (The original group details can be found on Ravelry at: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/spindyeweavers and are a lovely group to visit or join if you live locally to the Bristol area).
I also finished my jumper that I started and knit through P3 and on returning home redesigned to reflect some of the patterns I discovered and designed during the workshop.
I am going to get stuck in and design a properly fitting shrug for me for future use, as it is incredibly warm and very useful for wearing over nightwear when I want some comfort or read in bed.
I am sock knitting again – but for me this time. Unfortunately 6 years of wearing socks has now meant the originals are wearing out… oohps – not good planning on my part.
I am knitting a Countess Ablaze colourway - Northern Lights and have started another pair in a commercial yarn base (need to log it to Ravelry).
I am loving the Countess Ablaze yarn base. I met her at the Plug and Play Pembrokeshire workshop, where she ran a stall on the Sunday. Such colours – I am sure I have a photo somewhere… (!)
I have loads of other things in the planning stage, but each time I start something I get interrupted so further details to follow…
Just thought I would leave you with a really good link
Poirpoisefur produces some beautifully prepared roving etc., but also has issued a super pattern called Leaf Peepers Cowl. If you sign up for her newsletter (which is well worth the read), there is a voucher for a free copy of this pattern in this month’s edition.
I am now off to get back to my planning and creating…. art and colour is calling me at the moment.
But perhaps not statues… At least I was on the right side of this person (for a change !!)
See you all again soon..
