Hello there from sunny Yorkshire! We are here 'en masse' dogs, partners and Sophie. It's wonderful having a family week's holiday like this. Time to unwind, catchup and enjoy each other's company. So, this will be a quick post this evening, before our curry arrives!
Remember the yarn I showed you a couple of weeks ago, that josiekitten bought me for my birthday? Well, I have to say, it is the loveliest yarn I have so far had the pleasure to knit with. It's 'Woolen Rabbit' , dyed by Kim up in the mountains of New Hampshire. Her colourways are stunning. I'm making Anne Hanson's 'Henley with a Twist'. It takes 4 skeins of the gorgeous 4ply. The stretchy, cabled design should produce a lovely close fit! The pattern is very easy to memorise and quite addictive.
So far, I've completed the back and one sleeve, with the second sleeve very nearly there.
The plan is to knit, knit, knit, as fast as I can, so that I am ready to begin another new project next week. That's all I can tell you about it at the moment, as it is the first pattern in Anne Hanson's 'Fall in Full Color' club. The pattern is due to be released tomorrow, but not everyone has received their yarn yet, so I can't show the scrummy delight that I will be casting on with. Perhaps I'll have time to pop back during the week to show you.
Thankfully Oscar's paw is much, much better and he has been having great fun with Scott in Dalby Forest. Her he is just before we came away.
Thanks for stopping by. I always love to see you. Have a good week!
