Days 3 and 4 of the #wovember instagram challenge; Sweater and Colour. Yesterday evening I carefully took the neck band off the yoke as it just wasnt working well enough for me. Ive reknitted it in this lovely deep red and purple squishy merino from @devonsunyarns and Im MUCH happier with it now. Ill use the other yarn in another project - its too soft and squishy not to love. .. .. .. .. #wearwool #wearwoolforwovember #knitlove #knitting_inspiration #knitlife #knitstagram…

I've been having a play using the scraps from my @cuddlebumsyarn 2015 Shades Blanket Club. It's the yarn club that just keeps on giving!  However back to the New Years resolution. More completed wips coming up soon.

A few weeks ago I had a dye day with a friend @sara.hailstone. This alpaca silk was a learning experience for us both. I love the way it's turned out and can't wait to see it made up.

Hot off the needles a gorgeous baby sized Helter Skelter hat from my new pattern book available through @devonsunyarns . Such a quick knit; less than an afternoon's work

So thrilled about how these came out. Stunning raspberry colours on a gorgeously soft SW Merino/Silk sock base.

Christmas has definitely landed around here and Im cracking on with my #whitehorsesweater by @boylandknitworks in squishy Blue Faced Leicester DK by @theuncommonthread. Im just about half way down the yoke and I am LOVING it.

Some of my skeins from yesterday's yarn dyeing. Gorgeous SW Merino and Silk mix aran weight. So soft and squishy.

The only problem with having dyed all this gorgeous yarn is that I'm now itching to cast on a few things which is seriously messing with my resolve to reduce my wip pile. It's all sooooo frustrating.

Making good progress with my top. One more cap sleeve then sewing up and the neck band and I'm done.

This August the weather here has been mainly wet interspersed with the very odd dry day. So it's no surprise that today is wet. My children are in summer camp for the day and I've been doing some chores and running errands to restore some equilibrium to the household. We are just passed the mid point of our 8 week summer holiday so this restoration was much needed. So now I'm home and have lit the fire made myself a pot of rooibos tea and am about to wind the second skein of the main colour…

I've been on a yarn diet this year. It's been tough but I need to get my yarn stash down to a more manageable level (well at least to a point where it doesn't threaten to endanger life by toppling on anyone (me) who just happens to be adding another skein (or 3) to the stack). But @frankielovescrochet gifted me a skein of @norahgeorgeyarns last Christmas and it was so lovely I knew I needed more and it's been on my mind ever since. So some serious stalking via IG has been going on while I…
