it's a little bit small for me, so I decided to do a larger version. I had some camel/silk (which is the same base yarn as my new Silky Camel 4ply which will be in stock soon) in a gorgeous black and purple colourway so I cast on this afternoon before we went out. This is how far I've got:
I've also wound up a skein of Silky Merino Lace in another purple colourway (any guess what my favorite colour is?):
The other one is a bigger rectangular shawl and I wanted to use Silky Merino Lace. I've charted out a few ideas but not pulled it all together yet or swatched. I may get some swatching done tonight.
This afternoon, Simon, Emily and I (Vanessa is at a camp at church till tomorrow) went to Mount Edgecumbe Country Park on the Rame Peninsula. Simon and Emily brought a kite. Here's Simon on the left in the pic, Emily in the blue coat and the little black dog is Sam.
Knitting on the Silky Camel cowl ofcourse.
After a while we walked around the park. The park is just across the Tamar River from Plymouth and Devonport dock yard. There are frequently Navy ships moored in the Plymouth Sound:
Simon and Emily are watching Avatar now, which Simon had for his birthday. I'm not at all interested. I had planned to do some mahcine knitting but my neck is not good and machine knitting is bad for my back so I'm not sure if it's such a good idea. Perhaps i'll just do some more work on my Silky Camel cowl. I'm hoping to re-release the pattern some time this week. The new pattern will contain the new style cowl in two sizes and wrist warmers in two sizes.
Have you noticed how all the knits in this post have been purple? I'm having my purple fix. I've done mainly magazine knits for the past few months and I don't usually get to decide the colour and most of the editors don't seem to share my love of purple, so I'm indulging myself now.
