Thought I would give you a wee rest from the ripple this week, and show you another couple of projects that are on the go. A neckwarmer/ cowl type thing for John, who is outdoors most days, and finding that Southwesterly quite draughty on the back of the neck. I am using Paton's Donata in a petrol blue shade to match his waterproof - how stylish he will be. It is a nice soft yarn - all acrylic, but it is a bit squeaky to knit with. This is my car project.
I am also knitting these wee hearts with a view to making ♥ ♥ ♥ bunting for the mantlepiece. I have an idea in my mind - no idea if it will work, but it looks a bit like this -
Red hearts and some kind of knitted or crocheted cord in green maybe?? Sorry about the very blurry photo - and - oooh - just look at that naughty ripple sneaking in there...tut tut ;)
This is my reading at the moment - very interesting library book about rationing in the years during and post WWII. And a big event, in my calendar, anyway, the arrival of the OG seed catalogue - yay.
Happy yarning everyone ♥ Joining in with Ginny and others for the weekly Yarn Along.
ETA: Quick pattern details for the little hearts - two minutes to do.
I am using a DK yarn and 5 mm needles, but you can use whatever you like really.
