Hello, I'm back with a quick post as I don't have too much knitting to share, this week. I finished my On the Pier shawl, that I'll show you on Friday.
I bought this beautiful gradient yarn from Eaden Yarns, isn't it a beautiful colour? The delivery was super quick, I saw that she was having a shop update on Sunday so I stalked her shop and bought it on Sunday evening and I received it yesterday!!!
I'm test knitting the Pebble Beach Shawlette by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade which was the winning design of the Unwind Brighton Design Competition. It's a beautiful crescent shape lace shawl, very elegant for those evening walks along the beach. It will be printed in the Unwind programme for attendees at the event and then will be released on Ravelry on Monday 14th July, there's going to be a Knit Along so keep your eyes out for that.
I've done a few more rows on my Garter Stitch Baby Blanket, I would say that I'm a third of the way through it, this is good car knitting, so tend to knit on it if we are traveling.
I'm on the third clue of the Pavillion Socks, which is the last clue. I've never taken part in a mystery KAL and with each clue, I tried to second guess what was coming next. It turned out totally different to what I had in my mind especially the last clue, the foot. I've really enjoyed knitting them and love the pattern.
I've started reading Paris by Edward Rutherfurd and throughly enjoying it, I don't usually read pre-1900's historical novels but as it's about Paris my favourite city, I couldn't resist. I've really got into the characters and all the history that goes with this sweeping saga which goes back as far as the 1300's. If you enjoy history and Paris, I highly recommend this book. I'm linking to Ginny's Yarn Along and Tami's WIP Wednesday.
Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your week.
