Before the pictures I must share the good news of the arrival of the latest family member. Fearne Natalia was born on Monday July 7th, 7lbs 1oz. DD3's third child - she's got two girls and a boy- and my seventh (7th) grandchild!! I've got five g-sons but only two g-daughters. Two more g-sons expected later this year.
So here we go with the pictures:
Tote bag for carrying a knitting project and everything else.
The spotty lining is an Amy Butler fabric and the bag is modelled on one that was given free with Simply Knitting magazine a year or so ago. It was so useful on long car journeys and hopefully mine will be even more so with its extra pockets and bits...
EZ's Baby Surplice Jacket
Colinette's Jitterbug in colour Mist on 3.25mm. I made the longer sleeved version.
Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, colour "Seaside"and my usual toe-up magic loop on 2.5mm circular using Violet Green's Tapestry Sock pattern. I don't usually knit patterned socks but I really like the way the pattern mixes the colours so it actually does have a tapestry-ness about it.e very much.
And I love Shepherd Sock!
Fleece Artist BFL 2/8 Sea Storm as used in the pattern picture with Suri Blue (also Fleece Artist) colour Moss. And although this time I did a size that should have fitted me without negative ease and yes my tension was spot on, why do I still feel when I wear it (= try it on - I've not actually worn it yet) that it's not quite big enough.... Well, the shoulder seams don't reallly sit on my tops of shoulder so that's why. But if you look carefully on thepattern photo neither does the one on the model. So I'm probably not going to make another from that pattern.....and I probably shan't wear either of the ones I've so far made. Disappointing. But I love the feel of it. I like jumpers made in sock wool or finer so just maybe I'll make a sort of combination of Tempest and Marguerite. Then I'll know it will fit.
And the last of my finished knits-
Same as above except colour Mist
Just as I was thinking I'd finished I remembered this
It's the second Flutter Scarf made this time in the suggested yarn -from Skylark Yarns called Les Oiseaux
I love its drape and the whole appearance but prefer the feel of my first one in Violet Green's Silk/Cashmere
