Aug and Sept to date have been long hot months, but that is no surprise to most of you in the US and Western Canada. So I can now say Hurray for a warm ‘seasonal’ temperature day! With the kids back in school and the yardwork mostly caught up, I finally have time to sit and write!
How about a quick knitting update? This summer was a productive one – have a peek:
This cape is from Susan Pandorf. She is doing a series based on The Lord of the Rings – and this is Lothlorien! Lots of twisty cabled goodness here – all from a $3 cone of wool I found at a thrift store. I love the frog closures!
and these gorgeous socks are from Luise O’Neill of Sputh Mountain Naturally http://purplesagedesigns.wordpress.com/ Her charts and directions are meticulously written and a real pleasure to knit – I will be doing more of her designs in the future. The Whitney Pier socks were knit with a merino superwash from Amazing Grace Farms on Etsy!
So how was that for a hot summer’s knitting?
