Today’s Table – Being Productive

So many things to show you all! I’ve been being productive and making the most of my time. But remember when I finished the epic Estonian stitch shawl? Yeah, here’s what it looks like on (and a good idea of just how huge it really is).

Attractive as all get out, when combined with jeans, and hiking boots, I know! Would you like to know more?

Today’s Table – Alpaca Scarf

As some of you might remember I was working on a scarf in hand painted alpaca. Being a luxury yarn, when I ran out of it, and still wanted more length to the scarf, I had to come up with a plan.

And plan I did! I got another alpaca yarn in a corresponding colourway, and some beads which would draw on the colours from the hand painted yarn. Then I delved into my stitch dictionaries because I wanted to make a feature of the ends and show off the beading. Would you like to know more?

Today’s Table – Scarf and Socks

As I mentioned the other day, my main project at the moment is a thick winter scarf for Himself.

I’m making it out of yarn I had in my stash from Morris & Sons. It’s a 10ply wool, silk, and cashmere mix, so it is deliciously thick and warm. In this 2×2 rib, I’m hoping it will do a good job of keeping out the cold. As a bonus, I also have enough to make him a matching hat and mittens!

My other project at the moment has stagnated a little bit. Would you like to know more?

The Quiet Time

Lots of things have been going on, but not much to write home about. We are grateful to have amazing and generous family who have been kind enough to purchase us some new outdoor furniture for our balcony.

Which we have put to good use while the weather is so wonderful by having breakfast for hours in comfort. Would you like to know more?
