Good morning, my friends, it's official, Stephanie from Knitspiring Odyssey is doing her first knit-a-long. After mentioning it in one of her posts, a few people showed an interest in joining in, including myself. Stephanie has put a Mr. Linky up so everyone can join in and show what hats or beanies that you are knitting/crocheting, you can find it here.
She is hoping to post most Tuesdays, everyone can set their own personal goal, like Stephanie wants to get five beanies finished through the year. I don't have a goal, if I see a hat pattern I like, I'll cast on, there's no pressure to finish on a certain date, it's all down to what you want. It's called Beanie-a-long with Me, BALWM, it can be knited or crocheted, just link up what your working on. Stephanie was very nervous about putting herself out there, so it would be lovely if you could support her, I know she would really appreciate it.
I've started another Ardvasar by Lucy Hague, I'm knitting this one for myself, I'm using Malabrigo Rios in Sandbank. It's a pure merino superwash, it's lovely to knit with, it feels warm and soft and also has the squish factor.
I really love this pattern and will be making some for Christmas gifts, because it's an Aran weight, they knit up quite quickly. The Celtic Cables look quite intricate but are surprisingly easy to do, if you can cable you can definitely do this.
That's it for me, I hope you can pop over to Stephanie's blog and say hello or even better join in, the more the merrier.
