Detour

Nothing major, really.  But I just could not resist casting on for something else.


This is another new design from Alison Crowther-Smith, a Beaded Boa.

With pretty silver-lined clear glass beads, as you can see.

My camera is playing tricks again - that ball of Kidsilk Haze is in reality a lovely clear violet colour, 659 Ultra.  Neither of these pictures are actually a very good representation of the true colour, but if you have a look at Rowan's Kidsilk Haze information page - here - then you can see what it is really like.

Anyway, this morning I've been sitting in the tiny waiting area of the local place that fixes windscreens, knitting away on this pretty thing, placing beads and enjoying the sunshine - entirely happy.  (Lots of chips on the windscreen recently, all now sorted out.)

There were plenty of glances at the knitting, and one chap actually stopped and asked me what I was making, because he thought that his wife would like it a lot - that was her favourite colour, he said, and she would love the beads and the fluffiness as well.     I pointed him towards Ali's website.  So, Ali, if you get an enquiry about something that their husband saw somebody knitting in a waiting room - it will be this.
