Secret Pal 3!!

A parcel arrived from my Secret Pal!

In it was


a skein of Manos yarn in shade 103, some wonderful Squiggle by Crystal Palace in pink


Superhero Pez – Batman, Spider-Man and Wonder Woman.

and this delightful sheep card!


Thank you Secret pal for the incredibly thoughtful gifts! I especially love and appreciate the pink Squiggle which you knew I had a hankering for! I think I’ll combine it with either some pink eyelash or some Rowan kid mohair to make a scarf. Haven’t made up my mind yet.

I’ve been busy knitting and have finished the sleeves on the top down raglan. It took a bit longer because I decided to frog part of one sleeve so that the stripes would match up a bit more. I’d thought that I could live with mismatched stripes but because it would have been the only part of the sweater to not match it would have really annoyed me.

My current knitting project is a secret project! But something that’s very near the finishing line is my Mango Moon Poncho. Here’s a photo I took earlier of it mid seaming on my messy craft room desk.


It’s now all sewn up and just needs ends to be woven in. I was thinking of ordering a Mango Moon Sweater kit but after trying the poncho on I was aware of the heaviness of recycled silk. I’m not sure how I’d feel about a cardi or something in it.

    Congratulations on finishing the MangoMoon poncho! You’re an inspiration. Got a kit in the Malibu colorway but making slow progress. Autumn bringing-in-the-sheaves kind of busy here on the sheep farm, so anything that needs striping decisions has to wait.
    What size needle worked for you?
