A finished item, the Moebius cowl in Posh Yarns Sophia 4ply. I have made this deeper than the previous ones I've knit but the yarn is so soft it is disguised well. It is very loosely based on the pattern.
Next the start of something new, Broadripple socks in Yarn Yard Merino, this colourway was one of the Merino club offerings. I am using my Knitpicks DPNS, didn't think I'd be a convert to metal but they will save me alot of stress not to mention the Brittany's that I keep breaking. I also invested in the Options as Get Knitted had them as well.....who could resist.
New Hairdryer permitting we may venture to the Isle of Wight tomorrow, we are on the cancellation list! Or Oxford has been mentioned.......but then again we may find ourselves in Cambridge or on the Thames in London. Who knows!

A couple of our favourite English, we are lucky enough to live near a few vineyards down here and try to drink English when we can because the Whites and Roses are equally as good as any other countries offerings.
Three Choirs Rose.
No we aren't alcoholics, just sociable!

Apart from not needing anymore yarn this is drawing me to it. BUT and there are huge buts here. I can do cables, very neat cables, very TIGHT cables. Therefore any cabled item I have knit on a large scale usually fits a teenager, not me. Debbie Bliss has also seen fit to make the largest size not very large so I can compensate for this.
However since my last cable fiasco I have had both my Carpal Tunnels released, do you think this may help or was it probably the cabling that caused it, that and clearing a scrubland that is now our garden!
I'll keep studying it and knitting socks. I do like a challenge.
