I finished my blue Cashmere DK design before we left Spain and its blocking now. I loved it while I was knitting but I love it more now I've blocked it.
Looking forward to get some proper pictures soon. Isn't it pretty?
I did a lot of knitting this weekend and finished the Forest Dew shawl I cast on in Spain. I blocked it last night and love it. Its so delicate!
I cast on for a new pair of socks in Sirdar's new sock yarn, Heart & Sole, before we left Spain. I wanted to keep the stripes intact so instead of my normal heel flap and gussett I went for an afterthought heel. I'll talk more about this sock and my heel/toe choice in a separate blog post. I cast on for the second sock on a drive to Bristol yesterday then after about 4 inches ripped it out because I forgot to do the 1x1 rib.
As I finished a new design this weekend I allowed myself to cast on for a new design. I'm using my own Silky Yak (will be in the shop soon) and Milly Sleek (merino/silk singles) from Juno Fibre Arts. I'd left the Milly Sleek on my ball winder before we left for Spain. Last night I went into my office to wind the Silky Yak and seeing the two colours together made me realise I had to use them together. This will be my easy 'on the go' knitting for the next few weeks.
What's on your needles this week? Tell me in the comments.
