It seems May triggers my inner knitter and I get itching to start new projects for the coming winter months. Â I finished a Sweet Memories Cowl for a friend recently using leftover Zara ChinÃ© yarn.Â She lives overseas and her birthday was months ago. Â It took me forever to knit the last few rows, due to getting the house ready for market. Â Now we are playing the waiting-for-a-buyer game, knitting will hopefully help me keep the last remainder of my sanity!
I cast on another Sweet Memories Cowl, this time for myself. Â I was tossing up between knitting with some Noro Silk Garden Lite in green/blue and brown shades or some mid grey Alpaca yarn I bought while we were away at Easter (something else I haven’t gotten around to blogging about!). Â I decided to go with the alpaca yarn. Â The yarn was purchasedÂ in Beechworth at The Ardent Alpaca (lovely shop and staff). Â It’s made in Australia by Tailored Strands and is 8ply. Â It has a lovely soft feel to it. Â I am determined to finish this one for my birthday, which of course is this coming Sunday!
I think I want to knit another Tea Leaves cardi this winter too. Â I also love this pattern. Â Jairah needs a new jumper/sweater this winter too, not sure what though. Â Any suggestions for a boys pattern in size 4/5 would be appreciated.
