Oh Dear

Aran Knitting by Alice Starmore has been re-issued. I got a little carried away last night (it was very late!) on my iPad and pre-ordered it from Amazon. Despatch date is 27th September so a little waiting time! I am however a little confused because The Book Depository says they can despatch it today but it is not published until 26th November so the question is will I have my book for Christmas? On the plus side I could then give it to someone to give to me for Christmas!


There is a design in the book I have fallen in love with Eala Bhan (click for a picture of the back).

It is a “have to knit it” on the “to knit” list. It calls for Alice Starmore’s own 2-ply Hebridean yarn, which you can buy from her website, Virtual Yarns. They are switched on and allow you to buy a yarn pack for the design in any of the colorways of the 2-ply Hebridean. Prices don’t look too bad but they don’t give you much of a feel for sizing – would I be a medium or a small???



I have read that the 2-ply Hebridean is very soft and lovely and the colour I have my eye on is Wild Orchid but there are some lovely colours!


I had better get on with breeze. The right front is growing and hopefully some more photo’s over the next few days.

Meanwhile my current sock nearly has a heel!


Happy Knitting
