Never fear, for wool is here, in the form of an item to warm the ears from, you guessed it, Kate Davies:
|Just leave me hanging would you…?|
Sadly for me I didn’t knit this for myself, so I must live, until Saturday at least when we’ll be back at an unseasonable 6 degrees, with the constant fear that my ears may go black and drop off during my early morning cycle ride/slither through the back streets of East Oxford. I actually do like proper wintery weather but I wasn’t prepared for cycling in it, the bargain merino base layer I got the other day is helping though. Wool is marvellous.
This wwwww1 is for my Mum, who’s got a trip to Switzerland coming up, so really it should be in the post, but I had to take its picture in the snow first.
Here’s the very lovely trad. ‘Selbu Star’ motif in actually completely unplanned patriotic Jubilympic colours…:
|Red, white and blue. And purple.|
It’s knitted in a mixture of J&S Jumper Weight (that red of theirs is very much what I want from RED) and the leftovers I have spoken of before. Colour work is so useful for using up leftovers!
