A Knitting Update

An update especially for Melody who's been agitating to see how my knitting is getting along. 

First up is a finish!  Christopher needed some new winter mittens so I picked up some Navy Sirdar Snuggly and knit them using this pattern

Next Deco, I feel like I've hit a milestone on this as the body is now finished and I've made a start on the sleeve.

Of course I have some basic socks on the go, the wool is Zauberball Sock Yarn in Indian Rose.

I felt twitchy the other day and ended up casting on a new shawl - Willow by Victoria Magnus of Eden Cottage Yarns.  I'm using Eden Cottage Yarn's Pendle in Buddleja.

Oh - aren't Christopher's mittens darling. Good job on getting that far along with Deco. I am trying to muster courage to start a Kate Davies cabled hoodie. Didn't know about Eden yarns - so pretty. Did you go to that AllyPally event that so many of UK knitting bloggers were talking about ? Thanks for the update! Mel
