WIP

The weather is turning colder and my yarn is calling for me to be turned into gorgeous blankets.

I've been progressing on my Babette and am happy to say I will soon present it to you. Just need to add a couple of squares and add the border. It's looking great already.

Further my Event plaid is meshed up and yesterday I started to weave the strands up and down the mesh. My mom passed by and was eyeing the  tartan to be. Think I'll have to make another one soon. Lachen

No pics yet, just a little patience...soon now, very soon. Probably next week.

But I do have some eyecandy as I bought my yarn for the Attic 24 inspired ripple CAL.

Gorgeous hm. Want to see some more?

With you drooling at the look of these yummy yarns, I'll leave you and see you soon with some finished projects.

October already !?

This year is going by so quick. As it seems I just don't get around doing the things I want to do. Well, might be because I have way too many ideas in my head and getting more and more inspiration every day.

Like the other day I was surfing on the net, I encountered this:

Lovely aren't they. Especially the top one caught my eye. 

I've been wanting to make an event plaid for a while but couldn't decide on the colors until I saw these. 

So here is my version so far, the mesh is nearly ready and some extra wool is ordered to start the weaving. Finished result will be up soon

I used Rowan Pure Wool 4Ply in Sage, Eau de Nil and Porcelaine and DB Baby Cashmerino (stash).Love the yarn and love the colors. Too bad my camera doesn't grab the beauty as well as I'd like to.

(pattern on demand- in short it's working up a mesh from dc and then weaving through vertically so you'll obtain a tartan look)
