We have had a lovely week. I got all of the DIY jobs done that I wanted, Me Made May was completed and me and the boys got out and about a little, but there was much time for crafting.
Firstly, I completed Me Made May which was on my YOP list and I blogged about it here.
I have an FO! I finished the Moss Rose mitts.
I think these are beautiful if I say so myself. The yarn (Eden Cottage carlisle) is fantastic and gorgeously soft.
I am also planning for three KAL's (well two really) I am going to play along with the outfit along again. This is a yearly event hosted by Andi Satterlund and Lladybird (a sewing blogger). It runs from the 1st June to the 31st July and consists of participants sewing an item and knitting an item. Both have to be adult garments. This is going to be the last year so there are no featured patterns, but one has to be a WIP. So I am going to enter two. I am going to make two new modified Coco dresses, pair one with Vianne by Andi Satterlnd and the other with Sanctuary from the latest Pom Pom magazine. As a result I have cast on Vianne in some splendid Viola from John Arbon Textiles. This yarn I purchased during the week and didn't take a picture as I was so excited to wind it! I became a member of the John Arbon mill earlier in the month as I often use his yarn and so used the discount that comes with membership. This yarn is beautiful, I got it in the fern colourway and is much more green than it is showing.
Finally, in terms of WIP's, I thought I would show my blanket which I forgot about last week. I am getting there with this but the rows are very long now and I only do it now and again and I don't mind that at all. I love the fact it looks like something Stephen West would put together (that is not blowing my own trumpet about my knitting or belittling his designing - just a comment on the colours!)
Faience which is also from the new Pom Pom.
And so there you are for another week. Please catch up with the rest of the group by clicking the link.
