Baby Knits and Shawls......

Hello my friends, I hope you all all keeping well. We are still in the middle of moving so I haven't had much knitting time though i still try to get some knitting in each day as it's a great stress reliever. I have got one FO which I forgot to post about......

It is the Verdure Shawlette by Fluffy Fibers, it was such an enjoyable knit with an applied border, which I loved knitting. I used my last skein of Juno Fiber Arts Alice which is a beautiful blend of alpaca, silk and cashmere, it's such a shame you can no longer get this gorgeous yarn.

The Summertide MKAL is still running and we are on the last clue, I can't believe how quick these last few weeks went. This has been one of the best mystery KAL's that I've taken part in, it has been such a great group of people and there has always been someone there to help and advise when people have needed. This is why I love knitting, Ravelry and Instagram, it is such a wonderful community.

I am making good progress on my Bunty Cardigan which is one of many gorgeous patterns from the book, Loop's 10. I should have this finished next time I see you.

I've cast on a new project using this Drops Baby Merino which is a sport weight yarn, comparable to Debbie Bliss Cashmerino. I really like the yarn, it's knitting up really nice, I just need to see how it washes as the Cashmerino is a great wearing yarn.

I've cast on the Broderie Dress by Lisa Chemery, a sweet little baby dress though you do have the option of knitting it as a top. I'm also, trying out the new Knit Pro Zings, they are colour coded by the size so they look pretty. They aren't a bad needle, they aren't as sharp as some needles but I haven't had any issues with them.

I'm linking this to Nicole's KCCO and Ginny's Yarn Along.

That's all for today, it's short post but I just wanted to pop in and say hello, now back to the packing. I'll be back as soon as I can but our move is imminent so will see how it goes.

Take care.
