knitting and this is my latest project
A design by Kim Hargreaves from her collection Thrown Together. I am knitting it in Rowan CalmerÂ and the shade I have chosen is Onyx. I have wanted to knit this one for a while and when I managed to get the yarnÂ for a snip in John LewisÂ earlier in the week it had to be. An unexpected evening spent babysitting for Xander last nightÂ and I achieved this
I had 10 minutes notice of babysitting and managed to grab everything but a tape measure so had to stop when I thought I may have done enough to reach the armholes.
There are a few completed projects in the wings too which are in the midst of being put together – firstly Eleanor
and secondly Hermia
If the weather of the last few days continues I shall be needing these sooner than I thought.
Today was the annualÂ Newbury Water FestivalÂ held in Victoria Park on the banks of the Kennet & Avon Canal. A colourful flotilla of boats set the scene for the Newbury’s principal canal side event.Â Victoria Park was filled with stalls and entertainment with plenty to do for all the family.
Of course I neededÂ a little refreshment and just along the canal is my local Costa Coffee. I had 2 lots of knitting with me – Eleanor Hat
or my latest sock project
I optedÂ to do a few rows on
I love being busy!
I am knitting aÂ couple of squares for the Macmillan Comfort Blanket. I have opted for the Martin Storey Comfort Square Â and theÂ Debbie Bliss Comfort Square. My yarn is ready and waiting – Rowan Pure Wool Dk and I am reliably informed it is pure blissÂ
