This week I have quite a bit to tell you all so let me get right on in!
Let me start by telling you what is on my needles this week:
First up - my Zigzagular socks
These are growing nicely although I have only managed another two repeats since last week.
I am loving the patterning going on, which makes them a really easy, enjoyable knit :)
Hubby's Cap hasn't grown since last week as he has been with me most of the time so I have had to knit on other projects whilst he has been here :)
This is the beginning of a new cap for Jas.
I am knitting this cap in Drops Karisma in the colours suggested, because she wanted it that way!
I have managed to finish a cap for Kay over the last week and will share it with you all on Friday.
And now for the Awesome news!!!!
Most of you out there doing the weekly yarn along all live in countries where it is normal to have annual yarn festivals that you get to go and drool over all the gorgeous handmade fluffiness! *Envy*
Well, I don't happen to live in one of those countries and I was beginning to contemplate going on a trip the next time I saw one that tickled my fancy just so I could experience the wow of it all!
But now I don't have to!!!
Why not you ask?
Well because we are having an amazing Wool festival ourselves - in Switzerland - in October - SQUEEEEEE!!!!!
For all of you out there in Switzerland or visiting Switzerland on the 3 - 4th October it would be amazing if you would visit and support this wonderful team of ladies to make this event become a regular annual happening.
To introduce you to some of the amazing things we will be getting to see and experience there, I will be interviewing some of the wonderful people involved in this incredible event over the next two weeks - so be sure to come back as there will be AWESOME giveaways and wonderful goodies to drool over from the start :)
Let me begin by whetting your appetite :)
Look at this beautiful shawl!
Don't you just want to knit it straight away?
I do - and I hope to have cast on by Friday at the latest :)
This is the official "Swiss Wulle Festival" Shawl
It started on our national day - 1st August - and will run as a KAL until the last day of the festival which is on the 4th October 2015.
The pattern is available in English, German or French and the kit comes in one of these beautiful collections of Siidegaarte, Siide-Fideel (Silk/Merino Blend -fingering) Blue, Red, or Green
I have opted to knit this shawl in the green combo and will fill you in on the lushness of it all when I receive my kit soon.
Are any of you out there knitting this shawl or have you knitted it already?
Will you be attending the Swiss Wulle Festival?
Don't forget to come back next week to read all about it :)
I am sharing this post with all my wonderful creative friends so do pop over there for some great inspiration!
See you soon
