Winter Wooly

My latest project is Emma.

This is going to be one cosy jumper. It is from the Araucania collection book 1 by Jenny Watson.
                           Despite the cables a relatively quick knit on the front
              and well the back took no time at all being stocking stitch on 6mm needles 

The yarn is hand dyed in Chile, called Azapa and is 30% alpaca, 45% merino, 15% silk and 10% donegal – soft as soft! Love it.

Better get knitting on those sleeves so I can wear the jumper!

Happy knitting



The second sleeve of breeze is progressing well.


I do intend to finish this and then it is going in to the “sew-up” box and I am going to concentrate on my winter jumpers. I have a few things to sew up all of which are Spring / Summer garments so I will do them over the course of the next 6 months ready for Spring 2011!

I hope you are having a good week-end. Happy knitting.

Be Happy

Ok so Christmas is a little way’s off but I needed something cheery for a “long” journey earlier in the week.


The trick now is working out where the pattern repeat starts. The yarn for these socks was very expensive so I kind of feel a duty to “match” the pair.

Have a great week-end.
