I can't believe this is the 2nd Wednesday of the year already........ I am getting organised to get going with my WIP's but my wife asked me to knit her a simple scarf - so I picked up a 10mm circular needle and 2 balls of cream aran yarn and got to work:
It's just simple garter stitch; 20 stitches wide and with the yarn held double. I'm loving how quickly this is knitting up - it will be a FO before I know it. Next I plan to work on my high plains drifter; I am so determined to get all of my current WIP's finished so I can start knitting a cardigan - any favourite cardigan patterns?
So yesterday I went shopping; a whole day spent in Edinburgh by myself and it was amazing. I bought lots of stuff including boots, a coat and some new socks (I love me some socks - and these ones have foxes on). Anyway I also went to K1 yarns and bought some beautiful yarn:
First of all I found this gorgeous skein; it's all in different thicknesses and I plan to knit a small shawlette and then hand dye it - so exciting:
I also bought these artesano skeings; the pink ones are 4-ply and I think the gold/yellow ones are DK - aren't they pretty? No specific plans for the as of yet but I'm very excited to make some:Tami and Ginny; I'm excited to see what you are all working on.
