Major Catastrophe

My Hairdryer is deceased.

Will have to stay indoors and knit.......shame.

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.

Should have cleaned the mirror first!

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.

Finally, yes, I have been watching Rick Stein's Mediterranean Escapes and have loved every programme but won't be looking for too many Eels to cook. We have invested in this, love our local bookshop Sussex Stationers.

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!

Have a good weekend.

Have a good weekend wherever you end up. Must get the Rick Stein book too :) The moebius is simply stunning - gorgeous colour, and I love the Broadripple socks. Have you tried bamboo dpns? I find they are much more flexible than the Brittanys, and only use bamboo now.

Love the cowl! The Rick Stein series has been great hasn't it :-) Hope you sort out that hairdryer situation!
