Work in progress

As always, I have couple of projects going on at the same time. So, here is a quick review of what you can expect to see here in the nearest future.

Easy Lavender Shawl

I lost the ball band so I can’t tell the brand of yarn. Weight is dk but I am using hook 5.0 mm to obtain loose tension for this shawl.  Nearly there, just need to figure out what edging to add to make it look complete.

Toddler Peach Vest

Again, lost the ball band, so not sure on the brand. Using 4.0 mm hook and dk yarn.

Tee “Amanda” by Adriafil

This is going to be a Tee in size M. I am using knitting needles size 4 mm and Adriafil Kimera in green shades. This is mercerized Egyptian cotton, really lovely to work with.

In search for inspiration…

Whenever I need a little inspiration on what to knit or crochet next I like to visit my favourite local yarn shop Purly Yarns. They are small family run shop that offers friendly atmosphere and lots of inspiration – come and see, you won’t be disappointed!

As usual, when I visited last week I got myself new balls of yarn that I can’t wait to try and already have couple of ideas on what to make.

I am sure that kids socks made of ColourLab will look great! I am planning on using Vauvan Sukka pattern by Kerttu Latvala.

I am very curious about Batik Swirl by Stylecraft. I got it in shade Meadow, bright and colorful, with the purpose of making a scarf to cheer me up during winter days to come. Quite possibly I will use free pattern that is included on reverse of the ball band.

I really enjoyed working with Creative Cotton Print when I was making my Buggy Bag and Tunisian Pot Holder. This cotton is so versatile and has lovely colours too, this time I got it in pink and orange. It will be perfect for making heat packs like these Rice Bags.
