WIP Wednesday – A Splash of Mink

I picked up this skein of amazingly luxurious mink/cashmere blend yarn at the Knitting and Stitching show in London at the beginning of October. It’s so soft and such a gorgeous colour. I’m making the Amanda Neckwarmer with it, a small scarfette if you like. The yarn is a bit variable in thickness so it’s very odd – especially after so many weeks of knitting with Wollmeise on my Swallowtail. Can’t wait to wear it!



WIP Wednesday – Swallowtail

This is what I’m currently working on. I started this on September 10th. It’s my 4th ever knitted item and yes it’s lace. I’ve leant quite heavily on Jewelandarlin for support but now that I’m in Edinburgh I’m on my own – a scary and thrilling thought!

The yarn is Wollmeise in Tutu Dark and I’m part way through repeat 13 of 14 in this section.
