Love, love, love it!!! I cast off using a size 5 to ensure a loose enough cast-off and it worked. It' such an easy but satisfying knit.
I've also managed to finish my Ravelenic Games entry, the 'Summer Fun Socks'. Again, they were a quick and easy knit.
The summer holidays are slowly but surely ebbing away. In fact they seem to be disappearing way, way too quickly for my liking. There has been plenty of catching up with friends too! Josiekitten came to visit last Monday for a spinning day. I've not progressed very speedily, since buying my wheel last summer and decided that some Josiekitten encouragement was needed.
Hey! Not bad for a beginner. Hopefully I'll be able to show my finished efforts pretty soon.
Yarn arrived this week too. One delicious skein of Briar Rose Fibers Stella, all ready to cast on Anne Hanson's new pattern, 'Twig and Leaf'. It's such a beautiful pattern.......
................. and equally beautiful yarn!!!! Something lovely to look forward to starting in the autumn.
We're off to the cottage in Yorkshire tomorrow for twelve days and looking forward to lots of fun, lng walks, sea air, forest peace, good ale, food and company!! I've got my projects ready.....
I'll try and pop in next weekend to let you see what's inside the bags and how I'm getting on. Have a good week everyone!
