Summer projects...

I seem to have taken an unplanned blogging break during the Summer holidays - the house is full of teenage boys and associated ephemera and my crafting room has been reclaimed as a bedroom by son  no. 1! I have, however, managed to squeeze in a few projects and have planned many more!

Firstly I made  a Kate Davies Northmavine Hap. I used some sock yarn that was kindly gifted to me by a friend who was having a clear out! Instead of using 5 colours as in the pattern, I used just 3 but as two of them were variegated I felt that would give enough variety. I love the undulating ripples and shape of this pattern and the colour way reminds me of damsons and plums.

I still have a crocheted cowl to finish and am one sleeve short of a little cotton bolero..

Whilst spending a few glorious days in Lyme Regis with hubby (and no children!) I picked up some coloured twine which I plan to make a basket with, and I also have a pattern picked to turn the beautiful ombré yarn (part of the de stashing bounty!) into yet another shawl. I also have a Lino block ready to cut but really need to tidy the studio before I can start. 

I need more hours in the day, or maybe just more domesticated boys!
