I seem to be spending my knitting time working on the Lizard Ridge afghan at the moment. There are probably a couple of reasons for this.
There looks to be a little hole in the centre but that is not obvious in person and is probably due to the characteric handspun look of this yarn.
I have been asked if I found differing thicknesses in my Kureyon. Well:
yes I have. While this example is probably the most extreme example I could find, this was what my last skein was actually like, which would explain the “hole”. Overall though I don’t mind this. What I like about the Noro Kureyon is that it looks handspun (well, my attempts at handspun anyway!)
Continuing the Noro fan club, I have knit another pentagon on the VK capecho/bolero/shrug using Noro Silk Garden.
Each new pentagon seems to make the whole thing grows as it puts strain on the picked up edge. At this rate I will be stopping after I have 5 pentagons on this row.
I also received 2 new books this week. I will give a bit of a review on them after I have had a closer look.
Mother’s Day has been & gone. I had a lovely day. Lovely, thoughtful pressies from my 2 boys and then some valuable “alone” time. I enjoy time to myself, whether I sit quietly & read or whether I have a project I want to work on. This year I spent the mother’s day weekend working on a project. Our house is open plan with off white walls & whitish tiles. That has now changed (slightly) and hopefully there will be more colour to come. I spent the weekend painting a feature wall. It all started with an art class I did. I produced a large charcoal drawing of a nude (there are pics on this blog previously), anyway, I got my “lady” framed and then needed somewhere special to place here. The end result is the blue wall.
