I Can See a Rainbow

Quick, quick, quick as there’s knitting group to go to tonight and serious cake eating to do.  Not that I’m supposed to be eating wheat, but bugger it anyway, Victoria Sponge is one of my favourites.

I was sorting out my basket to take to knitting group and it occurred to me that I hadn’t blogged photos of the completed purple/red rounds on my Rainbow Granny Blanket and I’m hoping to make some headway on the red/cerise repeat tonight.

So I dashed out to try and find somewhere to hang the blanket, so you can see the full effect.

No filter, look at that blue sky

 

I love it!

I’ve promised it to Dina and will stick to what I’ve said, but I wouldn’t mind one myself at some stage.

 

The purple/red combination has worked really well don’t you think? (said, even though I don’t usually  do purple)

Tonight I’m going to go back to the first two colours again, we’ll that’s the plan, but I’m desperate to get my second sock knitted.

I love, love, love the Fish Lips Kiss Heel by Sox Therapist

2016-03-09 16.40.46-2  It’s definitely one of those designs that you find yourself saying ‘oh wow’ about, much like the Baby Surprise Jacket from the knitting goddess herself, Elizabeth Zimmerman.  Truly.  It’s a great fitting heel and despite the 16 pages, you only really need one of them,  once you understand the concept.

My only worry is that there’s no reinforced heel, especially after this happened a fortnight ago 😦

infinite twist

Before I sign off and drive to meet knitterly friends, I wanted to tell you about the lovely surprise I received this morning from Cate Carter-Evans.  We, as is Olann and, set up a Ravelry Group at the weekend and as a result, I’ve been all over the boards, groups and forums since.  I spotted Cate’s Log Cabin Scarf design and shared my love of it on one of the boards I’m on.  I had added it to my favourites and even looked at possible yarn combinations for it.

So you can imagine how thrilled I was this morning, to find Cate had gifted me the design.  Such a lovely, generous thing to have done and I’ll have to knit it now, won’t I?

I’m off to get ready.

Happy Making
