Works in progress

We always have works in progress. There can never be enough yarn or project ideas. The grey beanie Maria was making last week would go very nicely with the grey vest Margaret was making while she wasn’t well last week. Maria just makes up her beanies as she goes along. She is an experienced, confident knitter. She casts on the stitches and hen knits what she thinks will look good. The grey beanie is her homespun English Leicester and is cabled. Margaret’s vest is her own homespun  merino /mohair mix and feels very soft. The cabling gives a lift to the dove grey of the wool . The garment is going to be lightweight but warm and looks beautiful.  This week Maria was knitting a two coloured beanie and the pink and lavender colours are very attractive and are offset well by the white. Maria had spun the merino she was using for the beanie . Instagram is loving that beanie!
