I also had a fabulous time knitting. The long drive and back was brilliant for completing some of my Christmas knitting. I finished the yummy silk/merino feather and fan scarf (yarn is from Candy Apple Lane). I've loved the feeling of this yarn and I'm hoping it will look as beautiful as it feels. Silk/merino seems to handle a bit like mohair - there is a little fluff (so don't look for perfect stitch definition) and also it is important not to undo much of your knitting as the yarn fuses together. However, its beauty is perfect for a very cuddly scarf and if you go for an easy design - no risk of battling with fused yarn! Here are a few unblocked pictures but you have my word both halves are finished and are now peacefully drying on the blocking board.
Chloe Cardigan (by Alana Dakos from Never Not Knitting) for my little 2.5 year old niece in the same Sweet as Candy colourway as before and I've got enough for one more cardigan I think. It is amazing to get 5 cardigans out the 400g of beautiful Sweet as Candy plus trim (from Candy Apple Lane)! Here's a picture of it unblocked without its button.
So knitting-wise, this week will be about finishing off the little beasties for the Christmas wreath and blocking the above. Looks like I will be pretty busy!
