Colinette Tao, in all it's Hatty glory!!!!!
Pattern: "cherry", from colinettes arboratum book
Yarn: Colinette Tao 100% silk
I made this hat mainly on sunday evening with a little finishing off yesterday morning. It knit up really quickly and the tao is a lovely silk to work with, the colours so vibrant!!!! I do like colinette:-) So thats one bit of birthday stash used within two days, not bad methinks;-)
The back of flicca is now done, I like the way its looking, although mine is definately not going to be as baggy as the original, but I can live with that! Modelled by the lovely "Lizzy", who is glad to have a name to call her own now:-)
Despite not finishing Januarys sock yet, I cast on for februarys last night *roll*, I never learn do I!!!! But the pink is so pretty and so perfect for valentines day socks, that I just couldn't resist!!!!! The yarn is posh yarns "Lucia", sock club colourway for february, and I'm going to make the pattern up as I go along, but there will be a hearty theme:-)
I also cast on for a shrug using blue sky alpacas, alpaca silk yesterday! Its just plain stocking stitch, so I can click away while my concentration is elsewhere, and it should be a relatively quick project:-) Judging by my current levels of productivity,it may be finished this afternoon;-)
Only kidding!!! But I do seem to be turning out the FO's at the moment!!! A lot of what I've finished this month though has been as a result of UFO busting! So I can clear my Wip bags ready to fill with this years WIP's!!!!! That was the plan right???????????
Finally, the rest of my birthday goodies arrived from janette and Getknitted today! Aren't I lucky!!!!!
