Look at my jacket!
I am soooo pleased with it.
I can honestly say I've enjoyed every stitch.
I like it fastened on the empire line, I think it looks better for my body shape.
I am pleased that my friend Romain persuaded me to go for the grey yarn, there was a lovely brambly purple and a lime green, but I think upon reflection she was right, grey goes with more.
I've worn it lots already and don't feel swamped in it, so the job's a good 'un.
After finishing that, I got my friendship squares done for this month, these are in Rowan Silk Wool, a lovely yarn to work with.
If any of you read Northern Monkey's blog, you'll know that she announced she would not be Christmas Knitting this year.
I boldly declared Me Neither! but whilst having a bit of a stash dive on Friday I came across these (newly acquired) balls of Rowan Wool Cotton from Romain.
A lovely palate of colours with a ball of each.
What to do with them?
An idea suddenly sprung into mind. A crochet scarf, but for whom?
I've got so many scarves already and do I really need another?
Ah-hah I'll give to my (new) teacher for Christmas. And there it was. I slipped into Christmas Knitting (crochet) without even realising. I am loving the colours, the plum really gives the scarf depth.
And the best bit?
There will be enough yarn left for another scarf.
Just as well, because I was thinking I wouldn't be able to give it up.
A girl can never have too many scarves ...........
I've a few more rows to go on this one yet.
I read with much amusement today The Really Big Dream Blog. I have mentioned J and M in the past they run this fabulous gite Les Cerisiers in Burgundy France. J has taken up knitting and has the bug for sure, I know this because she has written " I couldn't put my knitting down and took it to friends houses, on a plane ride to the UK, to visit relatives and even to bed with me!" I left her a comment which read "Welcome to my world." I'm tickled pink that she's fallen hook, line and sinker.
Talking of pink, look what the postie brought me. A lovely new pair of (half price) ~Crocs from Rubbersole. My old pair were 6 years old and have no grip left, so it was about time. I know they are a Marmite thing, and I love them. I wear them around the house everyday and they're great for going into the sea with, to ensure you don't step on any seaweed, crabs or other pointy things.
I hope you have a good week and better weather than us last week, being 'on the top' of the Cotswolds meant we were shrouded in fog and didn't see much sky at all. It all gets a bit depressing.
Right, a few more rows on the scarf and it's done, maybe I'll start another too......
Bye for now..................Clicky Needles.
