Then there was another sweater....

Or rather, before the shawl as I'm out of sync! This was the Sorrel sweater from Wool and Pine whose patterns are always enjoyable to knit.
It's constructed top-down which means you can try it on to check the fit/length etc as you go. This was more 4ply yarn from my stash together with the perfectly matched mohair from Jess at Pigment and Ply - she dyes the most beautiful colourways. The sweater is very warm and my only wish is that I'd had enough yarn to make full-length sleeves. Having said that, it looks fab with a chunky bracelet.

A little bit of a catch-up

First there was the Mkal from Stephen West. I'd never done any of his knit-alongs before but decided to dive into my stash and have a go and I'm so glad I did as it was such fun! I didn't start until the MKAL had finished as I had too many other projects on the go. It's called 'Twists and Turns'and was a delight to knit with excellent tutorials from Stephen and lots of support in the Ravelry groups.

Trying again!

OK, fed up of not being able to blog so trying again with a few snaps taken when the sun made an appearance after the snow & ice melted. Let's try a few more to see where it dumps them............
