Creating in wool ….

Posted on

ImageI’m just back from a 4 day break in France.  OOh all that lovely time to knit.  I knit in the car (3 hours on the French roads each way, so glad hubby’s happy to drive!), I knit in our house in front of the fire, I knit on the sofa with the sun streaming through the window whilst my menfolk play football in the garden.  The intention was to actually finish a smallish top by the end of next week – to show off a particular yarn I admire – and to hopefully get a few wears of it before the warmer weather comes along.  It’s a variety of green shades with a sparkly silver thread runny through. I think I’ll get more than a few wears of it this winter/spring – I usually wear woolies right through to May and it’s only February.  Mind you, we’ve had the most glorious sunshine for two whole days – I even went out for a long walk yesterday to make the most of it. Everyone else out and about seemed smiley too so I don’t think I was the only one enjoying the weather.

So piccy is of the top mentioned, my latest WIP, although I have to admit and incy wincy baby top has been started too …… Hope to finish both by end of next week!

Happy knitting to you all.

      Hi roma1912, it’s by an Italian company, Adriafil, called Cristallo, Shade 052. I am knitting on 5mm needles, so a fairly standard aran weight yarn. Thanks for viewing my blog. Love your bunny ear hats!

    I got it from this site http://www.avicraftwool.co.uk. It’s lovely to work with but just a warning – it’s handwash only if you were thinking of baby hats/easy care.
