Back on track

So I paused the evolution shawl. I reached chart 3 and the knit count was off. Had 2 extra stitches in each section. I hate when stuff like that happens. Just stops the flow. I’m not sure if I did something wrong or if there’s been one too many increases in the previous chart. I don’t really care at this point. Just glad I’m back on track.



Tea time!

Now that it’s been handed over, I can show the Tosh Tea Cakes I bought this July when visiting Jimmy Beans Wool.

These are a JBW exclusive and contain 12×20 yards of Madelinetosh yarn – I got the Tosh Merino Light version – as well as a tea bag and a biscuit, plus a link to download a mitt pattern.


Berry Blackcurrant for Anneli:


And Mojito Mint Green for me.



Here’s looking at you

I was out cutting some smaller branches when suddenly I came across something magical. Some of them had like a pink eye. (They make me think of the Cheshire cat from Alice in Wonderland.)
I’ve been meaning to try making buttons from branches the whole summer. Now I couldn’t resist getting started.
I wonder if that pink will remain though as they dry up. I’ll just have to wait and see. And then drilling the holes without breaking them…
