Meantime, all my talk of sewing has been hot air. I have a blouse and a capelet cut and ready to sew, and plan to get at least one of these garments completed this weekend.
I pre-washed my Little Treasures fabrics and hung them on the washing line... and almost lost the blackwatch, which started to shred in the wind - oops!
However, I have done some knitting. I finally cast on my Audrey in Unst cardigan using the dark green Albayarns shetland fingering. I have decided I don't like working twisted rib: "purl through the back loop"? Err - no thanks! But it's too late now: 18 rows done, 18 to go. Deeply unphotogenic.
While knitting, I am reading "Brave New Knits" (from The Book Depository, since Amazon failed to pre-order for its pre-orders!) and am absolutely itching to cast on: two pairs of socks, a cardigan, a jacket and a shawl.

I am going to use one of my Knit Love Club yarns for this project, the deep purple Spirit Trail Fiberworks merino / cashmere / silk mix intended for the Caretta Caretta sock pattern.
This is my first Christmas knitting project of the year - eek!
And the yarn photo is from the dye-er's website.
