I’m on a something of a knitting sprint at the moment. One of my dear friends is getting married later this month, and has asked me to knit a shrug for her wedding outfit.
The pattern I am using is Debbie Bliss’s Bolero Jacket (Ravelry link), although I am making a number of alterations to the pattern. The yarn is Rowan Silk Wool DK in Milk. It’s a lovely soft yarn, with a subtle sheen.
The body is finished as of this afternoon; I am about to start the sleeves as soon as I sign off here.
In addition to this, I am very behind on the granny squares blanket that I am making for a soon-to-be-born baby in our family. I also have been trawling Rav for baby patterns to make, with luck between the shrug being finished and the baby being born!
I have got 2 1/2 weeks before the wedding, and 4 weeks before the baby is due. I’m thinking that the blanket may end up being a first Christmas present – hopefully I can knock off some cute baby clothes in a week…
Finally, if you’re one of the people whose blog I normally read, I’d like to apologise for my absence at the moment. I miss you guys, and I am missing seeing what you are up to. Things are calming down here though, so I’ll be back soon!
