The mountains are calling and I must go. - John Muir
The socks that I am working on at the moment. I dyed them and really like the colourway, more autumnal colours. I love autumnal colours. I used to get more socks done. I guess we all go through phases. Looking forward to wearing these.
This is the cardigan I am working on. It's a mon-petit-gilet-raye cardigan. It is my second one and I already started a second one. The blue is some vintage silk merino from Jaeger yarns and the maroon and smoky colour is Rowan Kidsilk. It is like a soft cloud of warm coziness. I am going to make another cardigan with whatever is leftover. Will have to add another yarn and colour to make up a second cardigan.
Looking forward to finishing a lot of projects. Might just concentrate on getting them finished. Though I have to do that scarf and knit a few other gifts. Wish there were more hours in the day. I would spend them walking the dog, drinking coffee, reading, cooking/baking, eating, drawing, knitting and watching a bit of netflix/movies/tv. Though on the tv front, haven't really found anything that I really want to watch. I like to veg out a bit when we come back from a walk, I like to watch something and knit. Should probably read instead.
I better get cracking and start drawing.
New prints are going up in The Ellie and Ada Shop.
I sent my Aunt a Ellie and Ada Birthday card. She liked it. I think my two grandmothers would have gotten a kick out of the fact that I named this venture after them.
Also new discovery! I have found out that the most loveliest hat, nice slouch, smurfy- slouch, cozy hat style. The best hat for my head is a hat that I knitted John. It was the first hat that I knitted him. Need to make more! In my favourite yarn, Studio Donegal!
