swatching

Swatching, for this.


The skeins are enormous - I can barely pick this ball up between my fingers.


Yarn from here. I'm hoping it'll be a quick knit once I've sorted out my gauge. It's definitely the season for a new jumper. What's on your needles?

Oh it's going to be gorgeous, and it's so you!

I'm working on the Pretzel scarf (knitting group knitting) and the Goodale cardigan (alone-in-a-quiet-room-so-I-can-concentrate knitting).

That looks lovely and the colour is great. I don't have anything on my needles just now but this inspires me to download the pattern and get knitting!

It is a beautiful jumper. I like the detail around the neck and the length of the sleeves. I wish I could knit! x

Oh yes, very nice, I can picture you in and it'll be fab. Just watch that gorgeous boy Walter doesn't get his paws into that lovely big ball!

It's going to be gorgeous Diana and the colour is perfect. As for me, no comment! Davey's jumper still is growing at a slower than slow pace, but I am beginning to feel a little inspired so who knows...sigh!! xx

A little scarf, a really easy lacy-look pattern, in the everlasting pink Calmer yarn that I will never get to the end of..... I really could do with a knitting tutor nearby, as I don't seem to improve with practice.

I love the colour you have there...

Nice and snuggly! Love your needles too.

Nothing on my needles, but do you remember that gorgeous purple scrumptious yarn I bought at Mrs Moon? It's on the hook and just divine!

That's a lovely colour.I've just finished my Mystery Knit-A-Long Shawl. Very scarey lace pattern but not so bad split into 5 weekly sections.Now attempting a ruffled scarf which looks like a strange sea creature. That's going ok though casting on 891 stitches nearly did me in!

Oof what a swoon-worthy colour. It reminds me of a summery Cornish sea.
