This little path was gorgeous, sunny and smelled totally of the roses blooming in the gardens surrounding it.
Winchester has so many little gems, J. and I hope to discover more.
Also, I believe I forgot to mention that my etsy store is finally up. Go here.
A whole plethora of knitting content.
Subtle Baby Skater Hat for my nephew. The green/brown bit is his name. I wanted it to be really subtle and it is! Needs blocking though.
Another Story Scarf. I don’t like the colors in this at all but J. does. Which is good.
Works in Progress:
Still chugging along on Oblique.
Working on the Twilight Shawl pattern.
Needing something mindless to fill in the gaps. (That’s the Milkweed Shawl.)
And I got yarn mail! (Which is my favorite type of mail, really.)
And chocolate AND a Split Yarn pouch in the cutest fabric. Thank you Bertha!
Have a great weekend!
This is the view of Winchester from St Giles Hill. Gorgeous, isn’t it?
Reading: The Little House series, still.
Watching: Red Bull Air Race, Wimbledon.
St Giles Hill, Winchester. This is the woody side on which you need a whole lotta stamina to climb.
This is the park side, there’s a great big park fronting some of the nicest houses ever that leads you gently to the lookout. Guess which one we discovered first?
I haven’t yet worked out how to reply to comments like I used to so I’ll just use this space to say thank you for the comments on the Twilight Shawl and yes, there is a pattern forthcoming. I’m currently working on a shawlette version to double check my notes.
I admit it, I am a Twilight fan. As I’ve mentioned before, the setting is so identical to my own high school experience that I had to look up to see whether the author went to the same high school as I did. But beyond that and the propaganda, I just love it. (I should be honest here and say I pretty much just love the vampires. I am always rooting for the vampires. I root for Dracula every time and always wish Jonathon Harker would fall face first on something pointy.) So being a geek and a knitter, I did the only thing I could: I knit a Twilight inspired shawl.
You’ve got the sparkle, the rain drops, a heart, the mountains and billowing clouds. At least, that’s the concept.
I absolutely love this shawl. I’m chuffed to bits that I managed to take an idea in my mind and knit it up. I love the yarn. I love that I knit geekery. Love, love, love.
