It feels like Winter but doesn't look like it.......

Waffle Weave

Outside temperatures this week are below zero, and yet we still have sunny skies!
I almost feel as if I am back in Africa again, the winters there were also very deceiving. As long as you looked out the window, you could believe that the day was a fine and warm one, until you took a step outside....BRRRR!
This last week it has been the same here, very untypical for a European winter, sunny and blue skies that is.

Anyway the alps are snow-capped - so there really should be no illusion as to what season we are in, I do wish it would snow though - hopefully in time for Christmas next week, that would be lovely!

So this week has been a weaving intensive week.
Above you can see the waffle weave kitchen towels that a client of mine is finishing off - I think they are coming along very nicely :)

Since I have taken over the weaving studio in January, I have had a computer-driven Loom that has been doing my head in as I could not get it to do what I wanted.

But as of today this problem no longer exists as I think we are finally getting along!

The proof is in the pudding as we all know, but so far it is coming along nicely:

Weaving aside, I have not done very much shawl knitting this week as I am trying to finish of Jas's Socks before her birthday next week, so my entire focus has been on them.

I have turned the heel and am on my way to the toes.
I am trying to get through at least 3 pattern repeats per day as I know that will be the only way to get there on time, but all in all they are growing nicely.

I look forward to having some more time to spend on my shawl and hope to have that close to the end before the end of the year.

I have finished my bulky cardigan which I will share with you all on Friday.

Do come past then and share your finished FOs with us all, I would love to see what you manage to complete this week.

I will be sharing this post with all my lovely creative weekly friends, so do hop on over there for some delightful inspiration :)

See you all soon.
