The latest 'stuff'

 Well I finally finished the Murex socks - these were from the 2012 Summer Sock Club - meaning they were well overdue for completion.
 And another Wildflower Shawl - an easy knit and a great gift - I can't seem to stop making them
And now the first of the 2012 Winter Sock Club projects - except it is a blacker blue than the photo. I'll show more of the pattern as I go along.

Honey Cowl

 A couple of knitters in my Thursday Group have made this cowl. I like it - it is a free pattern, can be varied as a short or long version and it is a fairly easy knit when you don't want to concentrate too much. I made the longer version using  a Joy of Yarn hand-dyed wool that I bought from the James at Unwind earlier this year. It is a lovely mix of colours

First snow

With snow sprinkled on the hills this morning it seems a good time to have this finished and passed on to the recipient.
I am enjoying making these Wildflower shawls - not too difficult, a fairly quick knit and super cosy and cute.

Happy Birthday Queen

Well we've just had a log weekend to celebrate the Queen's birthday and I've been finishing off some projects.

Firstly - the Rainbow Kauni Cardigan.  I also got a mix of buttons - it seemed to match the style.

 Secondly - made another pair of Sanquhar mitts for one of my knit group buddies.
 Thirdly - made a beret/hat for another friend - it's out of a possum/wool mix and will be perfect for winter warmth. And they are forecasting snow for tomorrow so I need to get them to her pronto

And I'm now 3/4 through the latest Windflower Shawl - so soon I can start something new....yay!
