Cable test

I love me a good pattern test, and I love knitting cables, so when Cinna Knits put out a call for testers I jumped at the chance.

This is just over half of a mini Chaos Cables cowl and I’m loving it. I’m already mentally digging through the stash for another yarn to use in the middle of a larger version.

You guys better get your hands on this when it comes out – it’s awesome!

I’ve already mentioned the broomstick lace cowl I started at the weekend, but here’s a slightly better photo of it.

Wow my camera is struggling to focus on this thing!

There’s been a wee bit of progress with Roses for Grandma, the most of exciting of which (to me) was the discovery of a more suitable yellow in the depths of my stash.

Mum told me that Grandma loved yellow roses so I had to include at least one. Mum also sent me this photo of the last china set Grandma bought.

Using that as inspiration I’m going to add in a few roses using this colour:

And possibly a pale blue one. Forget-me-nots are mine and Grandma’s favourite wild flowers, I love that we had that in common, but I’m not sure it’s possible to work those into the blanket so I might just go for a forget-me-not-coloured rose.

The only other progress I’ve made this week is caking yarn to better fit into the new storage I got. It’s so much handier than the six different cardboard boxes I had before.

So that’s what I’m working on. What WIPs has everyone else got going at the moment? Let me know in the comments!

WIP Wednesday 23.05.18

Current WIP count:7

The sunhat is neeeeearly finished, but the last few days I’ve been focusing on the blue top. You might even say obsessing over it.

Last time I had just started the front section, and today the front and back are done and sewn together, and I’ve made one of the sleeve caps!

Front
Back
It’s a sleeve, honest.

It seems the meterage on Ravelry was for the smaller sizes, as I finished the entire cake of yarn and had to go stash diving for more blues so I could complete the back. I’ve still got another sleeve and the pretty edging to do yet so it was way off. But yay for stash-busting, I suppose!

It’s much less portable now it’s sewn together so I shall go back to the sun hat at work and hopefully get that finished for Friday.

See, nearly there!

What’s everyone else working on? Having a good week? Let me know in the comments!
