Good morning everyone,
Oh such delight with all the new yarns coming into the store almost daily now. It is getting harder to choose a new project as each box opens and reveals different ideas, books and of course yarn and notions.
I have just two projects for the store left to complete. One is a gorgeous evening scarf/shawl in a yarn by Prism and the other is a unisex reversable scarf knitted in a sport weight alpaca yarn. The Prism shawl I hope to have completed either before I go to work this morning or it will be finished the evening. The alpaca is on size 6 needles so will take a little longer to complete.
My own current project is for an old school friend in England as a Christmas present. I decided to do a bolero and found a pattern on line dating back to around the late 30’s early 40’s. Very shaped and extremely elegant. The yarn I am using is a new line by Louisa Harding and it is Kashmir DK in black. This has to be finished as soon as possible and as it is just stocking stitch is knitting up quite quickly.
Once that is done, I have no idea what I am going to start from scratch because I have two or three sweater projects still on needles, which I have promised to complete before opening a new bag of yarn….
Happy knitting Sally
