Oh yeah! Despite the lack of posts on here recently, don't think I haven't been stitching and knitting like a madwoman. Actually it's only putting all these pics together now, that I realise why I haven't been on here for a while.
Let's start with the knitting. There's been swatching. This is the gorgeous yarn I picked up at the first Natural Fibre Market. It's Spinning Yarns, Weaving Tales and I'm planning something for my sister. The swatches haven't been blocked as yet, but the one on the right is knitted as a single and the one on the left with two strands. No decisions made on this as yet, but I do love this tweedy goodness. By the way, the next market is on at the Queen Vic Markets on 13 September.
There's also been knitting of sleeves. I'm so close on this Millamia cardigan that I can taste it. Unfortunately it's the project with no deadline and it's for me, so it doesn't get picked up too often. You know how that goes.
And then there was the glorious finishing of the girls' cardigans. Juliet's (the smallest one) was knitted last year, but the other two have only been finished in the last week or two. Juliet refused to try hers on as I was knitting so I could see if it would fit, but she's barely taken it off since; Phoebe's looks crooked here, I'm pretty sure it's just been made that way through photo shenanigans; and Olivia will have grown out of hers in about five mins, but since she's the oldest it will still get a lot of wear as it passes down the line. All the patterns and notes are on Ravelry for those interested.
Spoonflower. Now that I'm happy with the repeats I'm going to order a bit more and make myself a bag.
Quilts on Bastings, has done and I can't wait to show you the finished piece.
Holy moly, I don't know what I'm doing sitting here – I need to get back to it! Maybe another cup of coffee first… Happy week everyone.
