Hanami Stole

Just finished is Hanami Stole by Melanie Gibbons for the 60th birthday of one of my friends. The yarn is laceweight merino/cashmere from ColourMart UK and was knitted on a 3.25mm circular needle.

Laceweight wool

A LYS is having a 30% off all yarns and I couldn't go past these beauties. Colours are bright red, light green, dark olive, dark grey and a greyish brown.

Linen laceweight

Just received the most delicious laceweight linen yarn from Linnet in Japan.

Meadowsweet is the palest yellowish green, and Delave is a silvery bluish green.

My latest book purchase

"Wild Tea Cosies" by Loani Prior was released here (Australia) recently with 24 fabulous patterns, I want to knit them all. The cover photo looks like something Carmen Miranda might wear.

In Marianne Kinzel's First Book of Modern Lace Knitting, I've seen a couple of patterns that interest me but I would knit them in laceweight wool, not cotton.

Cashmere Scarf

A beautifully soft Australian cashmere, the pattern is Bramble Leaf insertion from a scarf in Victorian Lace Today by Jane Sowerby. My photo doesn't do justice to the beautiful colours.

Oh no!

I was doing a three needle bind off on the shoulders of my knit-in-the-round Fair Isle sweater when I realised I'd made a mistake about 4"(10cm) down.
