Yarn: My hand-dyed (Skein) Frog and Toad Sock, colourways used 'Knight' and 'Beach Shack'
Needle Size: 4mm/US6
This pattern was love at first sight. I loved the wavy eyelet section and the combination of two contrasting colours, plus I really liked the shawls crescent shape. The project itself was very enjoyable, quick and easy..I cant say enough good things!
Also, I have a new project on my needles...
...Cecily Glowik MacDonald new pattern Candelia, a top down, in the round cardigan with pockets, sure to be a great new addition to my spring/summer wardrobe. I decided to road test my Merino/Cashmere yarn for this project, which is knitting up wonderfully.
So finally, after such a long time away from the blog, I hope that you are all well and are enjoying the long awaited spring sunshine or admiring the beautiful colours of Autumn.
After nearly having a nervous breakdown trying to assemble it, I finally sat down and attempted to spin some Corriedale fibre with the help of Judith MacKenzie McCuin's book (Teach Yourself Visually Handspinning), and YouTube (such a great resource!).
And this is what I have so far...
...yes its a big mess, but it is so much fun, oddly very relaxing and like knitting its has become a daily activity which I very much look forward to.
