Simmer Dim Finish

I am delighted to say I have my first knitting finish of 2017 - Rosie's Simmer Dim.

As you can see she is absolutely delighted with it!  Simmer Dim is by Gudrun Johnston, The Shetland Trader and knit in Eden Cottage Yarns Harewood 4ply in Perwinkle(Dark) that Rosie chose at Yarndale last year.  I loved knitting this pattern and it's very likely that I will knit one for myself in the not too distant future.

I have also made some progress on my Whispering Island Shawl by Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade.

Close up of the pattern.  Knit in Rowanspun DK from deepest stash.

There was also a couple of yarn purchases in January.   I bought the yarn for my next cardigan project, I'm planning to knit the Scollay by Karie Westerman in Blacker Yarns Lyonesse.

I also decided that I would join in the Snowmelt mystery knit along by Helen of Curious Handmade.  After much deliberation I decided to use Islington by Kettle Yarn Co in Blighty, Siren Call and l'Heure bleue.

I'm looking forward to seeing your Snowmelt. So far all the ones I've seen are in variegated yarns. Your color choices are so pretty -- and the solids are going to make for a beautiful shawl. Love Rosie's shawl! It's perfect for her. Love your WIP too. The sweater should look nice with that yarn too!
