Well today I put up the blinds in the bedroom,
|then I made some cookies|
|war is being won agains ants in the pantry|
and now I am going to sit down
and knit some more of my shawl.
I also took photos of all of the madelinetosh
I have been acquiring of late -
thank you to Pru she is my dealer in such yarn.
come to the vintage sale
sample of goods
And I finished my Manu
I love this knit - although it took what seemed like an age it was a pleasure to knit - so well written and I learnt to look at the wraps and turned them all around after I had knitted them into the row, they twisted up somehow - I find wrap and turns such a confusion.
The possum merino from Touch was at first I thought giving me an allergy - but I soon realised that the move and boxes and tape was playing havoc with my poor hands. The possum is so soft and warm and snuggly to wear. The pockets are genius.
Love love love this knit.
the real colour is in the closeups - the larger photo didn't really work out.
Touch Yarns Possum Merino - colourway is Cranberry - I think this is a 4 ply but it knits up like and 8
needles - 3.5mm, 3.75mm and 4.5mm
and it took ages - I started back in the old house on June the 27th and final bit done on August 12th - then blocked and worn for the past 3 days, a real success
and thanks to Jody for picking out the buttons, she walked into the button shop in Newtown and this was the first container she pulled off the shelf - YAY
