To knit the cables on an Owl or Owlet
This week’s owling progress has been rather slow, merely down to not having as much knitting time as usual. I’ve got the sleeves finished, joined in the round and am two thirds through the cable work.
My lovely partner in craft swop, Helen, has finished Robin’s little crochet cardigan. I am so ridiculously excited to see it and to see Robin wearing a cardigan which I know was created, not only with yarn, but also love. My world since becoming Robin’s mama has changed hugely (for the better in every single way). Back in the old days I was responsible for negotiating and implementing trading agreements for the supermarket giants, aka flogging stuff. I wonder if the way forward is simply trading stuff.
My little photo bombing studio assistant’s birthday gift to me arrived this week. My boy has such amazing taste! I am delighted with these three skeins of Ginny Yarn, dyed with sumac and indigo. I have no idea what project I will use them for. Hmmm, I wonder if Robin was dropping a big hint, after all, that grey-blue would look gorgeous with his colouring.
When the Owlet is finished I will be starting on the Selkie, along with my Sister in Shawl, Valerie. I’m really pleased with the colours I have picked out, shown in the top picture, and am so looking forward to casting this on. I’d better get back to my owling…
Have a wonderful week of knitting and crafting.
