Time for a catch-up. There has been nothing but Me-Made May and finished objects around here – tsk! ;)
This is my waiting room knitting. You know Karina Westermann don’t you? She has just released the
first pattern in her Doggerland collection and I have signed up for the
KAL in her Ravelry group.
The Ronaes Shawl has been on my “must-knit”
list ever since I saw Karie wearing hers at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival.
I am using the Shetland laceweight handspun I bought from a shed at
the side of the road on the West Coast. It still reeks of sheep and I
I need a short break from short rows after that marathon.
So this evening I will return to the Willowherb sock by Rachel Coopey. It is flowing off the needles in a very pleasing way. Although I can’t predict the chart, but have to read every row as I come to it, the meandering lace pattern has a cohesion that I love. It makes sense. Hoorah! The Lioness Arts bfl sock wool has revealed a lot more purplish handpainting as it is knitted up than appeared in the skein – lovely!
But where are all those cardigans you planned to knit in May, Roo? Errr… yeah. I don’t know why I suddenly stopped knitting the back of my “Learn to Knit Love to Knit” cardigan. I think it was to prioritise FL’s birthday socks. I need to pick that up again, because it was looking good the last time I saw it.
And the Kex blanket? Another casualty of birthday sock syndrome, but eminently pick-up-able, and the love is definitely still there!
Sewing? I have thoughts to share... watch this space!
