Welcome back Wednesday!
Hope all of you out there have had a creative, productive week?
I am preparing for a craft party this evening, so I don't have too much time on my hands to chat, so let me get straight in to this weeks' WIP.
As you may notice the bright cap from last week is no longer in the photo, it is done and will be introduced to you on Friday ;)
My yarn for my Artic Ice test cowl from Linda @ Mamma4earth arrived on Tuesday and so I cast on immediately. :)
I ordered a choice of two yarns Drops Big Delight or Lang Yak.
My first choice would have been the Lang yarn as it has such a wonderful colouring to it which you can't really see in this photo. I did cast the cowl on with this yarn first, but it just isn't thick enough to look that good and after the first section of the pattern I decided against it! I will be making something else with this yarn in the future as it is so pretty!
I am happy with the choice of Drops Big Delight for this cowl, it is so lovely and soft.
Unfortunately, I can't take a very focused image of how the pattern looks in it, but I hope to have hubby to hand when it is finished for a better image.
I think it is looking super with the pattern, and the different shades of blue seem to work wonderfully with the pattern changes - as if it has been made for this cowl :)
How is your WIP going this week?
On to my reading: I finished "The Book Thief" over the weekend, (the book review will follow shortly) and have started "Friendship Bread". I am enjoying the book so far, but will let you know my thoughts once I am a little further.
Don't forget to drop by tomorrow for Tutorial Thursdays and share your crafts and creativeness with us all!
I am so pleased to have a wonderful Guest-blogger joining us tomorrow.
Vicky will be showing us how to transform a skirt into this bag - don't miss it!
See you all tomorrow
