WIP Wednesday

I started this WIP on a flight to the USA, no problem with getting my needles onto the flight, so I spent a pleasant journey just knitting away.  

The USA trip was to meet with a couple of ladies I met on Ravelry, you can read about it here, here and here.

The pattern is from the latest issue of Simply Knitting issue 107 - 3 shawl supplement and the yarn is Boo's Attic Simply Darling Sock yarn which I dyed myself.  Its quite bright!!

I think I had a greasy mark on the lens of my camera!
Today's bargain from the charity shop was a copy of this book - for £2.00.  Some lovely patterns, I can see a few appearing on here soon.

Other works in progress would be the garden, for a look see go to Our Garden Page above.  most of the vegetable plants are now in and seem to be doing ok, though we do have a couple of sick looking tomato plants!


  1. Quite festive. Love the colors. The shawl is very similar to a pattern I found in Ravelry - Age of Brass and Steam. I found I can play with the garters, stockinette, YO's and even make a frilly edge by doubling the number of stitches at the end. Looks like you had fun with this one. ;-)

  2. Bright colors! I'll bet you received some complements during the trip. What good luck with the book too!

  3. I'm impressed with your yarn dying skills! What a great thing to have been able to meet up with some Ravelry friends.

  4. Your shawl is looking good. Love the bright colours. Love the stitch pattern too. The book is a good bargain, with lots of promising projects. Looking forward to seeing the finished knits. xx
