Yet another new thing.....
I took this picture yesterday, things have moved on since then and I am now working the picot edging. Lots of picots, really a lot, but very much worth it for the lovely effect.
This is, of course, another sample that I am knitting for Alison Crowther Smith. It is the Judith Boa, and it has pretty bell-shaped ruffles along each side. This one is worked using Rowan Fine Lace in Vintage and Rowan Kidsilk Haze in Majestic - I do like Majestic, it is a real chameleon colour and so beautiful.
When I've finished this, I shall get back to Brier. I'd like to have that done, so that I can wear it. I've got one and a bit sleeves still to work, plus a whole lot of seaming, which I always enjoy - I love seeing a project coming together. It is the finishing that makes all the difference, I think.
I've got more things in mind to knit - something with Rowan Fine Tweed, and some things with Felted Tweed Chunky. I don't often work with chunky weight yarn, but there are some wonderful bargains around for this yarn at the moment - we know what that means, of course - and I couldn't let this chance pass me by, because when it is gone, it really will be gone. I like the Felted Tweed Aran very much - that's what I used for Victor(ia), which by the way fits me very well and is starting to get some wear now that the weather is cooler - so it seems logical that I will like the chunky weight of this yarn as well.
And I think I shall also spend some more time working on my Earth Stripe Curtain - the thing about working with Kidsilk Haze for any length of time, is that when you stop, you miss it.....
Edited to add - I have just heard from a very reliable source that Felted Tweed Chunky is NOT discontinued, it had been added to the discontinued list by mistake. So I really did get a bargain!
