Its been a while since my last post as I have been trying to get some pictures taken while the bad weather is here and I have been a little busy trying to finish up some projects on my needles. With the cold weather creeping in I thought hmmmmmm its time for winter garments!!! Among those I came up with, I finally have the pattern down for my Debbie Bliss Neck warmers / Cowls (AKA presents for the DCU girls) I kept this one to an Irish feel combining a lace ribbing (more complicated than it looks I promise) with some Celtic Irish cables to give them a little Irish elegance this winter. There is a quick pic of the trial below but Im not giving away the whole cable just yet but keep an eye out for these quick knit gems!!!
I have also been trying to finish up my Gold Party Top (yes its still unnamed) but myself and my knitting have had more arguments lately then actual progress. After almost a days worth of knitting, the top had to be ripped back to before the decreases *sigh* if it wasn't for the pretty yarn dazzling me with its brilliance I would store this one away but at least it adds some sunshine into a rather wet and depressing week!! I have a sneaky pic where you can see the warm glow of the yarn and a little of the detailed edge.
The rest of my patterns will be uploaded to to theconstantknitter.ie this month and the vine shrug is just coming to the end of its test knitting phase on ravelry and will be available soon. A big thank you to the test knitters mayogirl, grandmaKiss and shirlthegirl43 from ravelry and soon to join the camp Schnitter!! It is lovely to see the projects in different yarns. With this post coming to a close and the gathering dark clouds outside its time for a hot chocolate with marshmallows I think before I battle the weather for the trek to Brooks!!
