Goodness it is hot here today! I think summer has definitely arrived. I shall have to find some suitably summery knitting to do.
I have finished yet another stripy hat. The background this time is some double knitting cotton I found in a bag in the spare room – you never know what you might find in there! It is so nice to be knitting with a yarn where you can actually see the stitches.
I’ve also finished the latest felted knitted bag, this one is purple. It is in the washing machine as I type, although I think it will probably need to go through two washes to be shrunk sufficiently. I’ll post some pics when it is done and I have selected a button for it.
I had three knitting related parcels this morning which was rather exciting. Traditional Scandinavian Knitting by Sheila McGregor arrived from Amazon, a parcel with some coil-less safety pins, some buttons and a bag with the Elizabeth Zimmerman quote arrived from Schoolhouse Press, and 4 cones of ex-Debbie Bliss yarns arrived from Coldspring Mill. Wow! What a day! I am going to go and stroke it all now.
