Hello there, I hope you're having a good week. I've actually been knitting on my Calla Socks by Rachel Coopey this week, the pattern is from issue 4 of Pom Pom Quarterly, my favourite knitting magazine. I haven't knit on these for a while now but this week I picked them up and I'm very nearly at the toe. I'm using Artesano Definition sock yarn in Azure, I love the colour.
My Pebble Beach Shawlette by Helen Stewart is at the 50% point of the pattern, I need to work on this more this week to keep up with the KAL.
I might add some beads to my shawl, I've got these gorgeous grey beads that match, I will try adding them near the bottom of the shawl and see what it looks like.
On Friday afternoon whilst sitting in my garden under shady tree, I started this sweet tank top by Debbie Bliss. I had some yarn in my stash and wanted to knit something my soon to be grandson.
It was such a quick knit that I has it finished by Sunday, so I'll show you the finished item on Friday.
I also had a small amount of leftover yarn so knit a pair of bootees to match.
This week I'm reading In Broad Daylight by Seth Harwood, a fast paced, hard to put down thriller. Check out Tami's WIP Wednesday, Ginny's Yarn Along and Nicole's KCCO for more crafty WIPs.
I'll leave you with a few photos from our Saturday afternoon in Bewdley, a beautiful riverside town. The regatta was on so we sat by the river with a Pimms, live music and watched all the action.
Have a great week.
wow I love the socks and the colour is fab. Where did you get your knitting bag, is it Cath Kidson?
Gorgeous knitting as always! I love the way you can control the shading of the grey on your shawl with those mini skeins. Best wishes, Pj x
Loving the latest knitting projects and your photos from this weekend!!!!!
Those little booties...so adorable!
You always have beautiful yarn! Where do you get it?
I love the idea for the beads and hope they turn out well! The little vest looks like it must be adorable too!
I love shawls with beads, I think they help give the shawl weight and make it hang nicely. Very slow putting them in though!
Gorgeous socks :)
You visit the cutest places. How awesome trip hat so much mileage out of your yarn - baby jumper and booties. They look chic. I love your shawl. The sock colorway is fabulous.
Beautiful knitting once again Deb - love those socks, and baby bootees have always thrilled me to bits:)
Thank you for sharing your lovely pics, you always seem able to find good fun things to do and enjoy, keep up the good work:)
Your shawlette is lovely. The colour change looks divine. Those beads will add a great detail.
He is going to be a well dressed grandson Deb. Nice top. Jo x
As usual you have interesting projects to see but the shawl is super beautiful!
Hope this week is wonderful for you too!
