New project,,,

I decided to start a new redwork project,,, a small wall hanging. It's about time I made something from 'my library'.
 Had to prepare the fabric on the floor,, it was a little too big for my window.
 Progress so far,,,

And this is the book I am using,,,, some lovely projects in here.
I am still knitting,,,my Heartfelt shawl,
Loving the way this yarn is working out. And I bought some 'special' yarn for a scarf that I am hoping to wear to my Twin #1 son's wedding in June.
Not sure whether to knit it in the Laceweight, (blue) or the 4 ply,,,,, and I haven't even found an outfit yet...

I would like to say thank you to all my readers/followers that take the time to read this and to those that leave comments.
                                                        THANK YOU.

I have finished my Redwork quilt,,, spurred on by a comment left on my last post.
I quilted it in the ditch and put binding on it,,,,
                                          and I am glad it is finished.

I am knitting yet another shawl, using King Cole Country Tweed DK,,,

I love the way this is knitting up,, the colour change in the yarn is fantastic!!!

Yesterday was a gloriously sunny day,, so DH and I went to Burnham On Sea. I had never been there before,,,
 Not a cloud in the sky,,,, so quiet,,,, and this was at 11.30 am.

And here are my latest blocks for the BOM,,,

Here's hoping the weather stays 'nice' for a while!!
