Too much time on Ravelry and not enough time knitting probably sums up my summer quite well. Time to address the balance as I have so many projects I want to finish and so many projects queing!

Apart from socks and blankets my latest project is one of Kim Hargreaves designs Patsy.

This design was in Kim’s book Touching Elegance. The design can be knitted using felted tweed or the lovely wool-cotton which I am using. I do have felted tweed lined up to make a second though! The shade I am using is Gypsy. I hope to get some photo’s outside tomorrow.

We have had some cracking weather yesterday and today – 29 degrees! Wow unheard of for October 1st. Let’s enjoy whilst it lasts!

Happy Knitting
