1st October 2016 - Lazy Saturday

Enjoying a day at home...the needles are busy working on a shawl design called `A New Season` by Maanel. I'm knitting this in Rowan Felted Tweed.  The pattern is a 20 row lace and cable stitch repeat and I'm really enjoying working on it.

I originally purchased the yarn to knit a sweater for myself but I wasn't enjoying the pattern so I decided to frog it and cast on something else.

Shoes, glorious shoes

It's been another lovely day here, it feels like spring is not too far away.

I finished up an order for twelve pairs of cotton booties this afternoon.  

I've also been working on my latest blanket and have done three strips of squares now so it is really coming on (pics to follow soon)

My Next Blanket

I felt the urge to start on a new blanket....I've chosen to make the Rose Trellis Afghan.  It is a free pattern and can be found here.

The shades I'm using are a very pale peach (although it looks pink in the pics) a fresh minty green finishing with a surrounding of  bright white.

I am going to veer from the pattern slightly and use a join as you go method rather than work the openwork trellis between the squares.  The pattern calls for 30 squares - 5 squares wide by 6 squares long.   I almost have enough done for the first strip

I am aiming to finish at least two squares a day :-)

This is my latest knitting pattern and the first of the New Year.  I've had it half finished for quite some time but other projects took precedence and this outfit took a bit of a back seat.

The pattern consists of an all in one romper with matching bonnet and booties.  I came across this pretty openwork rib stitch and thought it would be perfect for an outfit such as this as it is quite stretchy.

I've designed the pattern to fit two sizes 
Newborn & Early Baby/Preemie size.

The larger size requires double knitting yarn whilst the early baby size calls for finer 4ply yarn.

It is an enjoyable knit and quite a quick knit too.  
The pattern can be found on my website:
