I've had a super productive knitting time of late. I've had a couple of things on the needles for absolute ages. With the weather getting cooler I seem to have an insatiable desire to knit so those WIPS have been completed and a two new projects started and completed too.
I cast on A Little ruffle in August. This is a very simple knit and really should only have taken about a week, maybe two at the most. But as is usual life happened. We moved and then I lost the urge to do anything creative for a while. but slowly the urge to knit returned and - well - here we are. I finished it last week Sunday, blocked it on Tuesday, and have already worn it. It is super soft and warm, so delicate and pretty. I love it!
Now,remember that I spoke about my Baa-ble hat a couple of weeks ago? Well I have to say that this has been one of the most enjoyable projects I have worked on in a long time, so much so that I have completed TWO hats already.
I chose to use Drops Air yarn. It is so soft and squidgy. It feels wonderful to the touch and is a delight to wear.
All I need now is much colder weather so I can wear my hat lol.
I have decided that I really love colour work. I loved watching the design grow, in fact I think it's what made this project so enjoyable and why I completed two (my daughter requested one once I had finished mine) in such a short period of time. This project has inspired me to try my hand at more colour work for future projects. I have a pair of Fair Isle Christmas mittens that I started last year and shelved but I have dug them out and am excited to get them finished :)
Right - must dash - hope you have a wonderful Tuesday :)
