A perfect day...
For knitting in the sun. The sky was so clear and blue, it really did feel like summer. Today is the same and we will be breaking out the BBQ to celebrate!
Now for what I was knitting in the sun, well I worked away at my Hermione Everyday Sock. I managed to figure out where I was going wrong with the heel and yesterday knit the heel flap, turned the heel and did the gusset decreases, so today I shall just be knitting along the foot.
I think at some point I will switch back to my Berry sock to get more of that done ( all that is left is to turn the heel and knit along the foot for that one) the switching between should give me fingers time to recover between knitting with the tiny 2.25mm needles for the Hermione socks and knitting on the larger 3mm needles for the Berry socks.
Last thing to blog about this weekend is this little beauty.
This is Malabrigo Lace in Mariposa and it is absolutely gorgeous! My Mum called me a yarn snob when I was harping on about it but who could resist singing it's praises, it is so, so, soft!
I am hoping to knit it into a Swallowtail shawl, though I am going to substitute nubbs for beads I think.
Now I simply must get out into the sun, I hope it is shining where you are!
