Knitting update

Since getting my ipad at Christmas I have enjoyed the ease of taking photographs and uploading them straight to Ravelry and FaceBook, but I have it packed away now in readiness for our big adventure!
First on the needles is the lovely "Edith" which you can see here.    And here is "Underwater Garden Shawl" which is here.   And nicely finished is my second "Adore"  which you can see here

As well as being mad on hats I am now officially mad on scarves and shawls!
My socks are coming along nicely I just have to knit half of a second sock and cast on for another sock.2 and I'm done.
My cardigan, Peridot, is coming along - I've almost knit the back but its slow going as I'm easily distracted but I plan to get cracking on it shortly.

More news and photographs to follow .. ..

Fayer - alpaca cotton

Fayer knitted in Rowan alpaca cotton - lovely and warm!  I have updated my ravelry project page but still not worked out how to include a link on my new iPad - another lesson from tech minded brother I think!
It snowed this morning and looked like it was settling but as quick as it came it also went, pity I could snuggle up in my new warm jumper!

Peridot goes on the needles

I started Peridot in Rowan Truesilk last night, it's knitting up nicely but feels funny after using 6mm needles for my last jumper, Fayer, which is done and sewn up and worn even!  I will take a photo of it today and share later on!
After thinking this winter we'd get away with no snow what did we get up to this morning? - SNOW!
Hopefully it won't stick it's slowing up already.

Plane knitting - my sock

Well so much for my plane knitting!  I cast on yesterday and knitted the leg!  It's lovely yarn to knit and the colours are fabulous, this will look lovely with jeans don't you think?
I shall have to find another project I think.
Fayer is coming along I have just the neck to kin and then sew it up, I will post picture when it's finished.
