Knitting


I am joining in with Ginny for this weeks sharing if knitting and reading and Tami for this weeks work in progress.

On the needles today is a scarf for my youngest.  The yarn is from one of my favourite wool shops it is very close to a friends house so every time I visit her the shop just has to get a visit to and it's hard to come out empty handed!  This yarn is hand dyed merino and is lovely to work with.  I tried various stitch patterns before settling on basketweave, it is a bit lumpy at the moment but hopefully it will flatten out with blocking.

Reading wise I have been dipping in and out of this magazine this week in my rare free moments.  My lovely husband bought me a subscription for my birthday so I have many more editions to look forward to.

What have you been knitting and reading this week?

  7. Very pretty yarn - just what I would have picked when I was younger. The basketweave stitch looks great. I like it "bumpy" ;)
