I’ve finished and blocked the Shilasdair Scarf- the colour look great, although I’m a bit worried that it hasn’t softened up enough to be a comfortable scarf to wear.

Oh well! If it’s not right I’ll offer to knit something else :)

Progress on my chunky knit cardigan is going amazingly (I had a holiday where I took a different project as this one wouldn’t fit in my backpack and then finished off a scarf since the last update)
I love chunky knits so much- not only are they quick toknit, but they’ll be toasty warm when winter arrives (hurry up winter!!)

Work in Progress Number 2 is a cardigan I’ve cast on today so I can take it with me on holiday next week!
The yarn is King Cole Gypsy in Funfair- it was a present and not what I’d usually choose for myself but I’m liking the way the colours are coming out.

I’ve been very busy lately, but I have managed to get some knitting in- this scarf will be a present for a Birthday.

It’s knitted from Shilasdair luxury double knit in Skye Gabbro and I picked a ‘Seaweed’ knitting stitch pattern to make it a little interesting, but not too fancy so I could get the scarf out of one ball.

I’ve bought a case for my phone to cross stitch, I’ve drawn outsome idea and now decided that I’m going to to floraland geometric as I couldn’t decide!

Slow progress with the actual cross stitch though…

I got a bit overzealous with the blouse making last weekend and also made a Colette Sorbetto top, with some modifications.
I probably rushed it too much as the sleeves and shoulders pull oddly, which didn’t happen with the first Sorbetto mod I made. I’ll have to un pick and reset I think……irritating

Finished a blouse at the weekend and I’m wearing it now.
The pattern is Simplicity Threads 3684 and the fabric is Liberty Tana Lawn in Umbria.
The navy colour is difficult to photograph, but the print is like a distressed version of classic Liberty florals- I picked a couple of meters up in the sale last summer, so it’s taken a whike to actually make something from it.

The ‘Classy’ yarn from a previous post made it into a scarf for my Grandad’s 80th Birthday. 

The pattern came from the Vogue Stitchionary Vol. 1.

A bit out of season, but it’ll do for the winter! I don’t usally wash scarves before wearing, but I’m so gladI did this one- it’s come up lovely and soft and Grandad was very pleased to receive it.

My next project for me is a Tulip Top. This will be my second- I’ve been promising myself another for a long time as the original was my first ‘successful’ circular knit. 
The plan is to have it done for the summer- whenever that is!

I’ve just finished a draught/draft excluder for a present for my brother’s girlfriend. I had some leftover mustard corduroy so I decided to make a lion.

I drafted the pattern for the head myself, so it’s not amazing, but he has a funny expression, which I like- he’s pretty funny looking wrapped up too!
