I’ve been on a real knitting tear lately:  one Watershed vest, three hats, three shawls (and another on the needles) and another hat (for a special person) on the go. This means that my yarn stash is beginning to take over…it’s not pretty.


This is Watershed in process (it’s now done.) Plum Royal Alpaca from Aslan Trends – gorgeous and wonderfully soft.


This is my Meret beret, also still on the needles. It, too, is done. Sirdar Click DK.

And this really wacky  yarn – it’s actually Polar Fleece cut into tiny strips and made into yarn. This hat is for my mum for Christmas – don’t tell her!

And finally, my Advent Calendar Scarf – no, there’s no chocolate knit into the stitches! Each day, a new set of pattern rows is released – ergo, the Advent part of the name. Knitting this out of Valley Yarns 2/14 baby alpaca/silk – REALLY fine. And includes adding beads. I’m a bit behind – I’m only on day 9…

Next up – Every Last Yard (Amy Swensen). I have some wonderful alpaca in chocolate set aside for that.
