Adventures in Knitting – Spring Things

My knitting seems to be following a springtime theme at the moment.

I managed to persuade the Minx that she’d like a little shrug in, horror of horrors, SPRING GREEN (and not her favourite colours of red or hot pink) by promising to embellish it with little pink beads.  If I’d been left to my own devices I would probably have used lilac, aqua or white beads, or more probably still, saved myself a whole lot of trouble and not used any beads at all.

Most importantly though, the Minx herself seems delighted with the result and may actually deign to wear it. I’m not convinced a modelling career beckons though.

I’m also working on a crochet scarf for me. I like this as it looks fiendishly difficult but is actually pretty basic (it has to be as it’s only the second thing I’ve ever crotcheted).

The beauty mostly comes from the Noro Silk Garden yarn.  I love watching the yarn unfold in all its different colours and textures. It sort of makes me want to take up spinning and dyeing in all my copious free time (ha ha!).

Apologies for the light posting recently.  Life has been a getting in the way a bit. For those readers who consider the approach of summer to be an excuse for excessive drinking rather than excessive crocheting, may I point you in the direction of my latest post on Shelterrific, where I attempt to educate the US in the ways of Pimms.

    I love Noro, don’t you? Your scarf looks beautiful. I love knitting but crochet is just that much quicker which is nice sometimes. The Minx’s sweater is stunning.
