A Quick Update

11 Sep

Time goes so slowly when you’re waiting to yarn to arrive in the post! In the meantime, I’ve started a pattern for a beginner’s teddy bear, which was so adorable, I went out and bought Let’s Knit magazine especially for that pattern, after seeing it on Atelier Oursonne. It turns out that there are many other really nice patterns in there, so I’ve added a few more to my mental ‘to knit’ list. I will post photos of my half-completed teddy bear tomorrow, as the pieces which I’ve knitted haven’t yet seen the sewing needle.

Happy knitting,
Goose

Mustard Scarf Project

6 Sep

I really wanted to knit something this year which is functional, as well as pretty. In winter, I wear a lot of scarves, all of which are shop-bought, so the solution was pretty obvious – I’ll knit a scarf! I’ve never knitted one before, but I’m sure I can manage a ribbed scarf (I’m going for the low-stress option). So today, I ordered some King Cole Super Chunky Gypsy Mustard yarn, which, judging from the online photos, looks very pretty and definitely has an autumn feel to it.

I’m really looking forward to making and wearing it. Now I just have to wait for my yarn order to arrive…

Enjoy your weekend,
