new design – bad photo

I know that you have no idea what this is – the next photos will be great but will not be available until the piece is completed and I have my real live model – but I couldn’t wait to show where I am up to. This has been my birthday present to my self knitting this piece over the last 4 days.

test design

Best Beloved cooked all day yesterday for my birthday, he made pea and ham soup for today. He created it not with a bacon hock but with a pork hock. He added bacon bits, smoky paprika and so on to improve the soup flavour. He then created a pork curry for dinner and we will eat soup all day today should it be cold enough with his home made spelt bread.

Me – well I might just knit all day.

Poncho with fluro stripes

Sometimes you do need grandchildren to clear your mind. My grandson, aged 12, told me I was daft as I called my large black poncho with stripes – “Rainbow Stripes”. You are daft he said – they are fluro stripes.

And silly me, I had even called it “poncho in black, blues, and pinks”.

Such clarity in such a boy.

Thank goodness.

And Claire love this poncho.

I cannot get Estonian Slanted rib out of my head.

I simply cannot get Estonian Slanted rib out of my head.

I have now created a couple of hats, a Moebius cowl, several capelet/cowl pieces, a cowl that could be a skirt, a scarf and am trying to work out how to create a garment with this jolly stitch as a great part of it, knitted in the round of course.

I guess I could use it like a chevron design – that might work.

Any ideas please.
