Knitting


My needles have been busy over the past few weeks, I have many small projects on the go.  I have finished the baby cardigans and sent them off, my twin nephews arrived last week both weighing around 7lbs!  I have also finished this hat but cannot find it to take pictures to share.  I cast on an Old Shale Scarf a couple of weeks ago as I thought it would make a good project to take camping which I have been doing a lot of recently.  I have soon got used to the pattern and can now pick it up and work out which row is next which is rather pleasing.  I hope that the scarf will be long enough by the time I get to the end of the skein, there is not much left and the scarf is a bit on the short side.  I love this pattern and it is a quick knit, I can see myself making some more of these for presents.

Despite being away a lot recently I have not done much reading at all.  The latest edition of Juno magazine landed on my doorstep last week and that has been the extent of my reading lately, with it being so light, so late we have been spending much more time outdoors in the garden so reading is taking a back seat.

Joining in with Tami for this weeks work in progress

  2. The garden is constantly pulling me away from EVERYTHING...especially laundry and dishes ;-) I have been trying to read some novels, but always end up gravitating to the gardening books, and my preserving books. I love the color of the scarf! And I also love a pattern that I can work out without having it in front of me - my favorite kind of knitting :-)

  4. Old shale is so pretty. And the colour you've chosen is lovely as well. I'd think it'd block out bigger (and longer) if you wanted :)

  11. I love the pattern and color of that scarf! I also really love your sweaters. Thanks for stopping by blog and commenting on my fairy garden! Sometimes that's the only way I find out about other bloggers that I'd like to follow. I've never even heard of Juno and will need to go check it out!

  12. Love the colour :) You'll get a lot more length from it if you block it when you're done.
