Oh it is so lovely to see all the blossom bursting open on the trees and the colours from the spring bulbs everywhere...makes a drive to Cambridge much more enjoyable, especially when you have yet another migraine. Still, it is lifting now and I can get on with my tidying, ready for a lovely weekend with Barry.
Tomorrow evening Barry is taking part in a concert, he has been going to a music group on a Saturday morning so he gets more practice with his trumpet playing. I am quite excited about seeing him play, very proud of him in fact!
I finished this cardigan yesterday, all I need is 8 pretty buttons for it and then I can send it to Maddy. I really enjoyed knitting with the Alpaca/Silk from The Natural Dye Studio, I already had two skeins in my stash but I needed a third...I have a fair bit left over. The pattern I used was rather confusing as the translation from Danish to English leaves a lot to the imagination. However, I now find I have tuned in with Sanne's way of thinking and finished it without too much hassle.
I have also been doing a bit of dyeing for my shop, spiral dyeing of Blue Faced Leicester fibre which turned out beautifully and will make gorgeous stripey yarn
and some semi-solid Suri Alpaca/Merino sock yarn wich will knit up with a gorgeous fluffy halo.
I am including a free copy of my Have a Heart Sock pattern with each yarn purchase!
You can purchase these products and more in my shop
Have a happy weekend and especially to all the Mother's out there, Have a lovely day on Sunday!
