Foolproof KAL – Pebble Splash

I’ve had this pattern, Foolproof by Louise Zass-Bangham, in my to do list for quite some time, and now that Louise decided to do a KAL, I thought it the perfect opportunity to finally get around to making it. I looked through my stash and decided on Super Biffle in the Pebble Splash colourway from Easyknits.co.uk, and I needed a solid colour to match. Looking through the stash I found Malabrigo Sock in the Cordovan colourway which matched perfectly.

I’m using 4.5mm needles and getting a nice fabric. I’m planning on making some mitts with the left over yarn, depending on how much I have left over.

Beach Outing – Part 1

Last week we had a couple of beautiful sunny days, so I decided to get the dogs for a walk on the beach. I also wanted to see the destruction the heavy storms we had at the beginning of the year caused. The destruction was vast, but they’re slowly cleaning it up and bringing the beaches back to their original state.

TEST KNIT – Haruni Plus – Finished

My Test Knit of the Haruni Plus shawl for Emily Ross is finished, and after blocking it in half (not enough space to block it as I usually do) I needed to take some photos, so here they are.

I still need to take final measurements, this one is even bigger than my “Around the World in 80 Days Shawl“.
