Life lately here has been all about finishing projects. I have finished my Vintage Bullion crochet scarf from issue 7 of Pompom Quarterly. My new favourite magazine in Debbie Bliss’ new yarn for winter Roma, a merino alpaca chunky wool in teal blue.
Also featured is my Garter stitch hat bought from the Toft Alpaca shop during my visit to the Knitting and Stitching show at Ally Pally last month. Knitted in grey and cream inter chunky yarn and alpaca.. yes! Alpaca pom pom.
Last Sunday I visited the sweetest coffee shop in my local area next to my new LYS. . Blyth Spirit emporium at the Wharf in Burscough, Lancashire. Nothing better then seriously good coffee and cake with my crafty friends.
Happy mail came Rachel at Tangled Yarn, My first skeins of Malabrigo Rios in Candombe and Arco Iris. This photo doesn’t do the colours justice.. Unbelievably soft and just as wonderful as people say they are. As you can see I have already started a new project. Wristwarmers in the Candombe. The arco iris will soon become a hat.
