Lacy Textured Infinity Scarf

Well I know I'm a day early, I was supposed to upload tomorrow but the sun is shining at last and I felt like getting my head around a few patterns and things I really need to get finished. So do you remember my 'Lacy Textured Infinity Scarf' that I created for the July yarn club over at Dexter's Rainbow well I'm glad to say it had really good reviews and it is now officially for sale from my Ravelry store, just click on the photo if your interested. I have made this scarf so many times it is a real favourite and the beauty of its you can make it for gifts all year round and what with Christmas soon approaching (I know I'm sorry) it would make a lovely handmade gift.

I have also finished my 12 point star blanket in white, blue and silver and I shall share that tomorrow when I have sorted out weaving in the ends and taking photo's. I hope the sun is shining where ever you are in the world, we have been waiting a long time for it so I'm going to sit in the garden while weaving in my ends. Happy Friday everyone x

Where has July gone!

I have only just realised that July is more or less over with, where did it go? It would have been nice if we had had some sunshine, but it looks like August may pick up yeah! I have been super busy with new projects, trying to catch up on older projects and I have been away in my Dandy (more on that to follow). Has you all know I write patterns for Dexter's Rainbow who has a monthly yarn club. Well this month Tracey sent me 100g of beautiful super wash merino in a colour way called 'Rainbow Flash'. the wool is a very fine 4 ply with a little sparkle in it. I must admit I did struggle at first with a design but we had agreed on a summer wrap and that is all I had in my head, so I set about playing and I would start a design only to find I didn't like it, so after 3 maybe 4 attempts (and nearly sending it back) I came up with my 'Summer Rainbow Wrap' Now I have a called it a wrap but when I have been taking pictures and posing the wrap I discovered that it can actually be worn in various different ways which I am really happy with because I'm not much of a wrap kind a gal but I do like a scarf. It can also also be worn as a sarong on the beach. Here it is I hope you like it. The pattern is included in the August yarn club packs over at Dexter's Rainbow and shall be on sale in my Etsy shop from 1st September.
