So my wifi situation tonight involves sitting in the dark near a campsite reception. Luckily there are no mozzies, but it means I can't finish the post I was writing.
So I thought I would ask - what are you making at the moment? If you are coming to this year's retreat I'd love to hear if you are making something special (there is absolutely no need to do this but I know some of you will!) And if you aren't coming, I'd love to hear what you are making to wear.
Before last year's retreat I was so nervous about you all enjoying yourselves that I didn't have the headspace to even think about making something special to wear. Luckily I had a fairly substantial handmade wardrobe to dip into :) ! Second time around, because I know we can pull off a really special weekend, I have a little time to do a spot of The Craft Sessions 2014 knitting!!
I'm limited to what I have with me - luckily that involves the two yarns above. And while the blue-ness and grey-ness of them is making me feel just a little bit predictable, I'm OK with that because they are the most stunning versions of blue and grey. Looking at that photo above just makes me happy.
The blue Shilasdair is well on the way to becoming Maeve. Although, I am slightly nervous about the fact I am knitting a shrug. While the pattern is sublime, I was a teenager in the 80s. Those of you that were with me in that decade will know what I'm talking about. I'm trying not to think about it too much.
The grey Isager is going to become another Carrie Bostick Hoge pattern called the Imogen Cowl. I have had this in my queue for-ev-er, so I am glad that I finally have a yarn and some time to focus on it. It isn't exactly kid friendly knitting but I hope I should be able to do a few rows in the car here and there.
So I'm looking for some inspiration for when I get back. Not having access to a sewing machine for over 3 months is proving a little frustrating so I am looking to live vicariously through you. Are there any new patterns out there that are tickling your fancy? Are you knitting up a storm?
I'd love to hear….what are you making?
