In The Pink!

I treated myself to a new coat just before Xmas. It’s from Boden and is bright pink. So, as a result I’m slightly obsessed with pink at the moment!

I’m currently working on a poncho from some Black Lamb’s Pride Worsted, boring to knit but necessary for the wardrobe!, but one of my next projects will be a Clapotis! I’ve chosen this pink mix Noro Silk Garden from my stash


It’s shade 08 I think. I only have five skeins so will make a scarf version. This yarn was destined for a Stained Glass jacket from a back issue of Interweave Knits but I started it more than two years ago and doubt that I’ll go back to it for a long time.

Thanks for the lovely comments about my new Silk Garden top down raglan. I wore it to Stitch & Bitch tonight although I had to take it off halfway through because it was too hot. Jeni wore her new Klaralund which is wonderful! It’s made from SG shade 87 and it was great to see that shade knitted up.

Jeni also gave a lovely present which I shall photograph tomorrow!
