LK KAL

Ahoy there, here we go….

Progress so far!

Progress on the Let’s Knit knitalong

2 x Trellis shell (natural)

1x windmill (blue)

1 x easy scallop (blue)

Hallelujah I have completed the 2 trellis shell squares. Even though I completed a practice square (after numerous attempts) on old yarn I still had to do a lot of unpicking with the correct yarn.

So it is a six part project I have another windmill and another easy scallop to do as well as 2 waves and stripes, using colourwork.

Hoping to improve my skills but still not warming to lacework!! And not looking forward to the blocking at the end πŸ˜”

Woolly wishes,

MAY ROUND-UP 🌈

These boots were made for walking πŸ₯Ύ

May has been and gone and what a scorcher! Another busy month at work. Lots of walks with clients, ensuring that they exercise but social distance as well!

Walking is great but I could do with it being a little cooler. However, I am sure I will be moaning when I am still having to go out walking and it is hammering down with rain πŸ€”

I sent 3 incubator blankets off to the warm baby project and received a lovely reply but they currently have enough knitwear so I will need to find something else to occupy my needles.

I decided to join the LKknitalong and did a couple of practice squares with yarn from my stash. I bought the correct yarn from LoveCrafts. It was so lovely I spent a week just admiring my purchase but I have finally done a trellis shell Square in the merino yarn. It needs a bit of blocking but quite pleased with myself. Three more squares to do! And the next patterns are available on Thursday πŸ€—

Looking forward to a bit of rain during June in the hope of reviving the dust bowl that is my garden.

Hoping everyone is keeping safe now that the lockdown is easing 🌈

Woolly wishes,
