Another Sunday update
Okay, I told you you wouldn't be hearing as much from me once I went back to work, didn't I? Hee hee .
I've managed to finish this version of Misty Garden from Scarf Style for my mother-in-law this week. It was a lovely, easy knit and I think the kind of vintage look of this scarf will suit Pam. I know, I'm getting awfully forward, am I not? (Resisting the Scottish "amn't I?", but could never say "aren't I?")
I made it in Silk Boucle by Fyberspates in the Foxglove shade, bought from Get Knitted at a reduced price. Used three skeins. It is a lovely yarn to use, and although the boucle bits were a bit bothersome at the cast on edge, there were no problems after that. I didn't have enough so I bought two more skeins, so I now have one solitary ball. Could become a doily or salad bowl cover or something.
Oh yes, underneath is a well loved and well worn jumper called Spruce from Rowan 29 knitted in "Jonelle Cotton Shine" when John Lewis did their own yarn.
In other knitting I have been working away at a striped reverse stocking stitch cardigan in Sirdar Denim for my niece's daughter. Can't remember if we went for grand niece or great niece. We're not given an individual designer's name, but it was in the most recent Women's Weekly Stitching edition.
Have also done about one millimetre on my Copper Garter rib jumper. "Pumpkin" as it is being affectionately known round this house. Mmm. Pumpkin, not too sure about that one.
