knit along

Joining with Ginny (Small Things) for this weeks knitalong.

I have read several blogs recently where people have made the 'oaklet shawl' so I have jumped on the bandwagon and have joined them.  This is my version which is made in Old maiden aunt merino/silk 4ply in bluebell.  This is for my mother in law whose birthday is in just over a weeks time so hopefully I will get it finished in time.

This moment

{this moment}
A Friday ritual. A few photos- capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

June Knitalong

Joining with Ginny (Small Things) for this weeks knitalong.

This is a sample I have been working on for Great British Yarns for their show room.  It is from the new Rowan book for babies - Just Baby.  It is made in baby merino silk dk - which is incredibly soft.  I loved making this and found that it was quicker to knit the tiny cables without a cable needle.

At the moment I only have my Debbie Abrahams Mystery blanket on the needles.  This is my inbetween project project so is not growing very quickly. I am way behind.

As regards reading I am not reading much as by the time I get to bed at night my head hits the pillow and I just need to go to sleep. We have been spending lots of time in the garden especially when the weather is good.

Hope you are enjoying what you are working on at the moment and have a good week.  Hopefully I will have something else on the needles this time next week.

Happy Jubilee weekend

Just a quick post to wish you all a happy Jubilee weekend, hope you all have a fun weekend and enjoy the extra days to spend with friends and family.  Thought I would also show you my Jubilee flower I made earlier to wear to the two parties we are hoping to go to over the weekend.  Red, white and blue but not necessarily in that order (sorry!).

Have a lovely weekend.
