This week I've been working on two new projects.
This is the beginnings of a new pullover for me......it's fulfilling the need in me to make a Veera Valimaki top....I love so many of the things that she has designed, but I am starting with something simple (hopefully!) her Plain and Simple Pullover......I am doing stripes, as I love me some stripes! I am little concerned that I may end up looking like a Cornishware biscuit barrel....I'm going more for nautical.....fingers crossed then!
This has taught me a new skill with changing colours in the round without showing where they start....youtube to the rescue for jogless stripes!
The second new project is a scarf that I've been pattern testing for Marie from Undergroundcrafter....great pattern, very easy to learn and flexible to make a scarf as long or wide as you like. I tried this in King Cole Riot and have really enjoyed watching the colours unfurl....its not far off done in just a few days, just needs a couple more rows and a bit of blocking and it will be a done deal.
Well, the weekend has flown by again, and next week marks the return to school for two boys with little starting back the following week.
They have had a fun-filled holidays, lots of outdoor adventures despite the constant rain, so lots to tell their friends in the playground!
I will leave you with two photographs from yesterday's walk.
Sometime later when all has quietened down, I will look forward to reading about your progress too....until next week.x
