May 12 - view from a 319 bus stuck in the Streatham
bottleneck one-way system near St Leonard's church
May 11 - this month's sock club yarn from Woolly Workshop - lovely colours!
May 8 - Mother-in-law's tongue, Sansevieria trifasciata, in flower. Not very exciting flowers - pale greeny white - but they may develop into berries.
May 7 - a change from blue skies and bright sunshine. In other words, it's typical Bank Holiday weather...
Opal Hundertwasser, colour 637A. Nice.
May 6 - different restaurant, same bloody awful mobile!
In a colour sense, that is.
Richard's DK cashmere in Muddy Meadow, a rather beguiling tweedy mix. No purple in sight here, which makes me rather nervous! The cashmere is oiled, so I knitted and washed a mini swatch - the dry swatch feels gorgeous and I think I'm going to like the colour....
I tried out a couple of lacy shawl patterns last night, but decided lace isn't the right thing for the yarn. This is the beginning of the Landscape Shawl from Fiber Trends which seems to suit the tweediness of the yarn very nicely.
A trio of Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawls. Top - 76g of Colourmart DK cashmere in Tundra; right - 2 skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Purple Club; bottom - 90g of Colourmart DK cashmere oddments in Grigio, Black, Sand and Natural plus a stripe or two of leftover Tundra.
I've also been frogging. I dug out The Interminable Wrap to wear the other evening and had one of those short-person-in-an-oversized-wrap revelations. It looked like a horse blanket on me (not really the effect I was after).
10 and a bit frogged skeins of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Pioneer - plenty of yarn to knit a generously-sized shawl and a couple of pairs of socks. Now, where's that drawing board that I need to get back to?
