The summer here is whizzing past in a blur of camping and knitting - definitely not complaining. We went to the New Forest here in England last week that was absolutely gorgeous. We stayed in a campsite right next to a steam railway and subsequently caught the train on the days we were there.
I have finished a second pair of shortie socks. These are knit in Mellifera yarn in bluebell.
I, as always, have several. I am making my way down the first sleeve of Breathing Space.
I have cast on my August socks in Up, Up and Away from Little French Meadow. These are a splendid colour and I am going to be using the Spattergroit pattern by Knotty Gnome. I will be taking these with me this next week (as we head off for our last holiday to Cornwall).
My triangle socks and Sevilla are still ongoing.
And finally, I have cast on my Christmas jumper. I shall be following the tender heart pattern from Heart on My Sleeve. They suggest you use the sleeve as a swatch and given that I don't like to swatch this is a great idea. I shall adjust the sleeve as I go and then take my gauge from that to knit the body.
I am using John Arbon Textiles Knit by Numbers DK which is gorgeous and was going to insert a photo here but then my computer broke so it is not to be!
I received the third instalment of the surprise club this week, but here is a sneak peak at parcel two.
