|On the Needles at Tangled Yarns|
Love all those cables!
My mum has a new project on the go, her first time cabling.
This is a four stitch cabled scarf in our Jo Sharp Alpaca Silk Georgette.
This week our wonderful Kim had a birthday and I surprised her with some sneaky knitting that I had been working on last week.
This is a Zuzu Petals by Carina Spencer in our MadelineTosh Pashmina!
With the days cooling down I thought I had better cast on miss 6’s school cardi. I gave her the choice of several patterns and she picked the lovelyJane by Georgie Hallam.
I am using our Biggan Design DK Merino.
They know me too well…..
