Berry good

To Cambridge, and the longstanding strawberry fair. Glad to see knitting was well represented and strawberry yarnbomb activity was noted and smiled upon. H. Want some photos?

ocean blue

Just in today. A beautiful handstitched handquilted ocean waves quilts in baby blues. It is absolutely gorgeous.

Oh baby it’s cowl outside

So, amazingly I finished my holiday project. Here’s my ribbon cowl finished off with wool felt covered buttons. I’m loving it!!!!!

Sari always seems the hardest word

This is turning into my holiday project. Thought you’d like a peek of my progress. It’s a well travelled project. I’ve knitted all over Brixham. I’m hoping to finish the main bit in the next day or so. Me! Finish!!! Also, a shot or two from the roof of the boat. I’m sitting up here…

Aftermath

I went back to the scene of the crime today. still going strong. A little puffy from all the rain but all cozies present and correct. As you can see my offspring treated Monster with respect. Not.

Bombed

Innocuous, non? Little did you know that these fine examples of rain sodden footwear belong to Stitchopolis’ newest band of renegades. Corralled together by the wonderful Dillytante you are witness to our first joint yarn bombing….soggy, yes but excellent fun and definitely addictive. Want to see what we got up to? I’ve been a little…

Last bit!

I never posted the final pictures of what I made, did I? A lacy neck-warmer for Lady Sybil to wear when being chauffeured around by her beau. Topped off with a flowery brooch and lined with chiffony stuff to give it some body. It was made from Rowan baby bamboo – silky!

Drive on…

So, I’ve already mentioned the Downton Abbey Swap I took part in on Ravelry.  Well, my spoilee emailed this weekend to say she has received my little shoebox all the way in Maine.  She said she likes the goodies, phew! Want to see?!!??! Look…. The basic idea was that you were knitting for your partner’s…

The suspense…

I’ve finished my ravelry Downton Abbey swap knit. And all the goodies. Here’s my parcel before I packaged it up. It’s going to the US. Hope my swap partner likes it. I’ll post more when I know she’s received it. Looking forward to mine too…
