since I finished something. I finished the twirly whirly in late August or early September. It's just a bit of fun, but Katie seems to appreciate it as a new thing to sit on.
It was satisfying to use wool that I had dyed, carded, blended and spun.
Then last night I finished a pair of socks. I used Koigu KPPM, which I love. These will count as one of my 10 in 2010 challenge because I had the wool in stash. I started a new job last month and am a commuter again, which means I'll be able to do some sock-knitting and get through some of the several kilos of sock yarn I have.
On the needles (actively, if you know what I mean) I have a pair of Leyburn socks, which I'm making out of Malabrigo sock yarn (Stonechat), and a shawl/scarf called Vlinder made out of gorgeous Shilasdair luxury 4-ply (it's cashmere, angora and lambswool).
Last weekend we took Peter down to Exeter for the start of his university course. I saw this lovely doorway in the cathedral close.
I don't know anything about it because we didn't have time to investigate, but aren't the repeating patterns knittable!
