Works in Progress.........A Quick Knitted Gift.



Good morning, I've got two projects that I'm working on this week. One is my Pipers Journey by Paula Emons-Fueselle, that I'm doing with the Singlehanded Knits - Buddy Knit Together, the other project is the Ammolite by Alexa Ludeman which is a really quick knit.


I'm now up to 225 stitches on my Pipers Journey and have joined my second colour, I joined it at 207 stitches on the second row of the pattern.


I chose to join it on the wrong side as I like the look of the look of the two colours intertwining, here is a close up of how the two colours look, together. 


Next up is the Ammolite cowl which I started yesterday evening, I'm knitting it in Sublime Cashmere Merino Silk Aran so it's knitting up really quick plus it's an easy pattern to memorise.


I will finish this by tonight, these would make great Christmas gifts as they are really quick to finish. The pattern is from issue 6 of Pom Pom Magazine, I've also finished another pattern from this magazine which I will talk about on Friday.

I finished Inferno by Dan Brown, last night, it was good but I didn't enjoy it as much as his first books, tonight I will be starting The Beach Street Knitting Society and Yarn Club by Gil McNeil. It's set in a seaside wool shop in the UK, I'm really looking forward to reading this, seaside, knitting and a wool shop, that's a winning combination.

I'll be linking this post to Ginny's Yarn Along where, each week, you can share your knitting projects and good reads.


I'm also linking to Tami's blog for Work in Progress Wednesday so check out both blogs as there are always some fab projects. I actually first saw this book on somebody's Yarn Along post, so it's great for picking up new reading material.


I just wanted to share this photo, we went to Bicester Shopping Village on Sunday, their Autumn theme is knitting and yarn.


There were giant size needles and yarns everywhere, there are even handknitted cushions on the benches, great fun.

Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate the time you take out of your day to read my posts, have a good week.

Thanks for sharing your great projects. I went straight to raverly and added them to my queue. I've been needing to knit something for myself lately. A shawl and cowl are just the things.

Not only are your knits beautiful, but your photos of them are breathtaking - maybe it's the white and lavender together but they are peaceful and calm to me. I especially love your Piper's Journey and the pictures of that. Gorgeous!

Really beautiful job on both of them and I adore the color choices. Gosh I can't wait to learn some more in knitting, as I only know the basic, to be able to do stuff like that.

Ammolite is gorgeous, and well, cashmere/merino/silk? YUM.

How fun to find a yarn-y art installation. Thanks for sharing the pics!

Andria said...

Wow, great projects. That cowl is absolutely gorgeous!

Joy said...

Your projects are looking beautiful and seeing them made me suddenly realise that, although over the years I've had various WIPs on the go at the same time, I've never had more than one knitting project happening at one time! Strange that!
Your knitting is inspirational - well done, and, I am amazed at that huge ball or yarn!
