I cast on for the Caterpillargreen shawl before we left but wasn't really feeling it. Then we visited Santorini and the volcanic landscape and blue water reminded me of the colours in this shawl and I suddenly wanted to finish it. I've just cast this off yesterday evening. I didn't get that far on this while we were on the holiday but I've knitted a lot since we got home. The pattern will be revealed in September.
Since I've been home, I've also done a few rounds on my sparkly Opal socks. I'm on the second sock and the leg is over half done so I'm nearly there. This sock has been living in my hand-bag and I work on it when I'm out and about. The picture below was taken before I left for my holiday and the yellow string is the waste yarn for the afterthought heel.
I'm not keen to cast on a new project at the moment. On Monday I'll be casting on for something which I'll be revealing tomorrow. Until then I'll try to finish these two pairs of socks and I need to do some swatching for future projects, design commissions and my book. Make sure you come back tomorrow or sign up to my newsletter for my big announcement. I've got something fun planned for August and it'll be free.
