2nd Hat and Mitten Set
I finished the 2nd hat and mitten set for The Soaring Eagles Project over the weekend, this is the same as the first set just slightly larger and a different colourway. I do hope they bring some joy to the little girls who will be receiving them. I will be sending them with a prayer that their Christmas will be a happy and bright one.
Another finished tea cosy, this one will be added to my growing list of items for sale in my etsy shop. This weekend the etsy site is getting a new look site and our shops will all be getting a makeover too so that is pretty exciting.
I am now working on more squares for Lightning Ridge KAL I am still getting slightly annoyed with all the purple that seems to be in just about every colour so far! I beleive there is some worker at Noro who has a fetish for purple and insists that it must be included in each ball, has anyone else found this to be the case? I am going to go and write a post about it over on the KAL website.
Last picture, but definately not least is some yummy hand dyed yarn made by one of my fellow knitting coven members, Katt isn't it just soooo pretty. The one on the left is 8ply self striping and will of course be made into Thuja socks have I ever mentioned how much I love that pattern? The pretty watermelon one is a 4ply sock yarn and will be made into Shazzas Socks eventually. Yes I do have a lot of sock yarn and definately, repeat definately do not need anymore! Oops I just remembered I ordered some Opal off Caroline, another member of the knitting coven who happens to be a supplier of Opal sock yarn, what hope have I got?
Till next time, happy knitting ;)
