New Project Wednesday!

Drops Kid Silk

Yay - A new project to share - always so much fun to have something new on the needles!

If you recall a while ago I made a bolero for Jas to go to her ball.

Well I tried it on once it was finished and decided my wardrobe also needed one of those! Especially in the cool summer evenings at the beach ;)

And so I cast on one for myself in "Apple-Green" - the colour in the image isn't exactly as it looks for real - it is more this colour:

I think it will be the perfect summer knit. 

I have so many projects that are in my queue at the moment that I have decided to make a to-do list to keep my self on track (and to prohibit myself from adding any new projects to the queue for a while!)

I will be posting this list on my Friday FO post this week so that I can remind myself what I still need to get done!

 How many projects do you still plan to get through in the remainder of this year?

Reading wise: I am still busy on Madame Tussaud, still enjoying it :)
I have a two books that are the next in line and one of them will be coming on holiday with me - so a beach read!

Which would you recommend as a holiday read?

I have also just found out that my cousin has written a novel!
As soon as I manage to get my hands on a copy I will tell you more :)

I will leave you with an image of my beautiful flowers that hubby gave me this week - yellow Echinacea:

yellow echinacea

Aren't they pretty?
Smell good too!
The yellow kind are apparently quite rare, so I am looking for a nice little place in the garden where they can feel at home.

Enjoy the rest of your week.
See you tomorrow.

  1. That yarn is so pretty--I love its soft halo. The bolero you made for Jas is gorgeous; I can see why you want to make another one for yourself. You've reminded me that I've been wanting to read Madame Tussaud! I keep forgetting to put it on my reading list. I haven't read either of your beach read selections, but after looking at the descriptions, I would probably pick The Lifeboat (in fact, it's going on my list). However, I have heard that The Kite Runner is excellent. Beautiful yellow Echinacea!

    1. Hi Susan,
      I am guessing that I will be finishing Madame Tussaud in the not too far distant future (it is really good :)) so if all goes well, I will only have one of the two left to take with me on holiday.
      Thanks for visiting, have a great rest of your day.

  2. I have read The Kite Runner and it is an amazing book, very well written. You won't be disappointed with it! I haven't read The Lifeboat.

    1. Hi Christine,
      Yes, I have heard that it is very good and have wanted to read it for the longest time, so it may win the holiday award :)
      Thanks for visiting, have a super day.

  3. That bolero is going to be so pretty. That yarn looks quite soft and light.


Thanks for visiting my site and leaving a comment, I really appreciate each and every one.
I will reply to each of your comments, sometimes it does take a while to get around to all of them, but I will reply within 24 hours of you posting. :)
