Delicious Design Studio! I found them via Corrie who updated her wonderful blog too and I have to say their designs are just beautiful. I hope you all like what I chose.
Okay so onto the yarn purchase for the new year (yes I couldnt help myself), but I was looking for some nice solid colored sock yarn whereas I usually buy variegated ones and since I want to knit up some more cabled socks for myself this year I thought I might go and have a look at Meaghan's website where she sells really lovely yarns and other things. First up is the Heritage Cascade sock yarn in a beautiful blue (5615). I loved using this last year when I knit my sister's green socks. I do have a pattern in mind already so I will show when I start them.
Secondly I bought some Louet Gems sock yarn. I think the color is called Goldenrod, a mustardy type color which I seem to be loving for the last year or so ... havent decided on a pattern as yet but will have a look once I finish knitting the blue ones.
Our year has started off nicely so far, a bit of knitting, some friends visiting and so on...... as for knitting plans, well more socks this year hopefully and I may even try to knit up some knitabulous sock yarn into a shawl pattern. I have a gorgeous blue and a red/pink color try out. I havent found the right pattern yet, nothing too overly lacy as I dont think I could concentrate knitting 4 ply and lace with Isabelle around! Any suggestions would be highly appreciated from you expert knitters out there!
I should hopefully have my first FO of the year finished this week too so I will pop back then to show you!
