More of the same...

Yarn arrived
Knitting at the beach 

Nearly done this star blanket 

Starting again at the beach!


Coffee and knitting 

Knitting and cake in the sunshine 

Another finish. 

The pictures tell the story much better than my tired brain after too much working. 
Hope the sun has been shining in your corner, too.

Hooked on stars

There's been a lot of hooky action here so far this month.
All about the stars!

 I started with this gorgeous blue and red number in Bendigo woollen mills cotton, but was soon distracted by another yarn stash that has been threatening to become a blanket for a few months now!
 While I'm deciding how big I'd like to make the red/blue one I've been working on one or is that two from the other stash!
Almost done with the pink and yellow number. Now working on a scrappy version.
All projects are interpretations of the rainbow ripple baby blanket by Celeste Young  
There may just be an empty bag ready for filling up with nice new yarn and all its potential! 

Hope you crafty stars are aligned for action.

August- Where exactly are you hiding?

There was a little knitting action in the craft space.

There was finishing and plenty of starting!

For the OPAM record, a couple of days late, 7 finishes last month.

Three of them are the same design worked up in different yarns for wonderful effect, as I worked the first one in an Angora mix the working name of this design is fluffy bunny colour. Ha! In the picture they are the white(angora mix), the green(100% alpaca) and the orangy/pink one that is a beautiful merino single.

The red cowl is another new design, Deloras will be ready for testing shortly.

The father's diamond socks went down a treat after I rushed to get them finished when the celebrations were moved forward a week so the parents could enjoy a trip with my brother and his truck. They're currently enjoying a little outback adventure. 

A pretty pink headband accompanied me on a run around kind of day, it's a fabulous project for on the go.

The mythical wings shawl, that's the one with all the bright stripes is a test knit for the Gabrielle. A very clever design that gives a nice triangle shape without all the stitches of a top down design.

It was a big month of knitting and finishing, the needles are currently waiting patiently while the hooks are having a turn. Haha!

Hope your days are sunny and bright.
