Hello, how are you all, I hope you had a good weekend. As I said in my last post we went to Betws-y-Coed on Friday morning, we've drove through the village numerous times but have never stopped before.
It was a very relaxing weekend, we didn't do much apart from taking in the stunning Welsh scenery, I loved that the mountains had a sprinkling of snow.
We headed to the coast on Saturday, this is Criccieth, we just parked up and watched the waves crashing against the sea wall. I don't know about you but there's something so relaxing about the ocean.
I managed to get quite a bit of knitting done over the weekend, I turned the heel on my second Diamond Gansey socks, I'm still enjoying this very simple knit and purl pattern.
Olivia's "blue cardigan" has seen the most love this week and I'm on the right front. I love when a pattern is knitted in one, so no seaming!!!!!
The final project that I've been working on is my Aureus cardigan, I've nearly finished the right front. I was hoping to get it finished by the end of March but I'm not sure whether that's going to happen. I've read a couple of chapters of Knitting Yarns, if you love knitting you will love reading about different authors that knit and their different stories of why knitting is important to them, very enjoyable and easy to pick up and down, as they are only short chapters.
I'm so tempted to cast on Mskiknits brand new pattern, Hana Hou that has just been released, I love the slouchy, relaxed fit of this gorgeous cardigan, perfect for all seasons but I'd better finish one of my other projects on the needles first. If you hurry on over here, you can get a discount code for $2 off the normal price, this offer finishes on the 14th February so you need to be quick!!!!!
Check out Ginny's Yarn Along, and see what others are knitting and reading, this week.
Also pop over to Tami's blog and check out more Works in Progress.
Thanks for stopping by, I hope to catch up with visiting all your blogs, this week. I've been busy making wedding invitations for my friend's son, which I hope to share with you soon.
I love that whenever I come to your blog there is always a sock picture of two!! I really enjoy seeing your latest pair on the go. Glad that you had a good time in Wales, I had wondered if the weather would have affected you, but it seems that it didn't which is great. xx
Loving the photos from your weekend!! Beautiful!! And loving the newest projects!!!!
Love your socks Deb, and the yarn! Sounds like the weekend was a great one - lovely scenery, relaxing pastimes - way to go! Hugs, Joy x
The river looks so peaceful. All of your projects are lovely. Their colors are vibrant and show off torch patterns well.
Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos, lovely to see. Your knitting projects all look wonderful, I love the socks and the lilac yarn.
LOVE those socks! I just started knitting socks so I'm doing some very straight-forward stuff. But someday I may get fancy. Someday ...
Sounds like a blissful weekend despite the weather!
I have popped that book on my wishlist - thanks for the recommendation :o)
Wow, you have so many beautiful knits on your needles. Great colors also. Your weekend trip sounds quite relaxing. I enjoyed seeing pictures with grass. We are totally snow-covered with more on the way.
Oh wow, you are working on several gorgeous knits! They all look beautiful!
Beautiful socks! You have me tempted to buy Mel's pattern now. I love that the pub gave you a wool blanket to keep you warm.
Goodness you are busy - I love the color if the blue cardigan!!
I haven't been to betws-y-coed in years - I took sailing lessons there when I was about 17!!
