Three Winners & Hatching A Plan

Hatching A Plan

I've got some winners to announce from the Kelpie Vest giveaway but first I'll thought I'd give you a peek at a new design that's on my needles.

Isn't the yarn just stunning? It's a tightly twisted single spun sock-weight merino, dyed by my old UK neighbours, Sparkleduck called "Solo". The colourway is "Neptune". I was delighted when I discovered they lived only a trot down the road from me in Cambridge and managed to collect quite a tidy pile of Sparkleduck yarn for my stash.

As the weather cools off here I've been reaching for my scarves, shawls and cowls to give me a little bit of extra warmth over my sweaters and cardigans. It's not quite cold enough for a coat but something around my neck is perfect; cosy with a splash of colour.

So obviously, I need more woollies to wrap around my neck. Hence my plan. I've designed a funky wee wrap with a modern twist and I'm busy writing the pattern and knitting it up. Stay tuned for a cute wrap sometime soon.

Anyway, I do also have some winners to tell you about. 

I've randomly drawn three names from all the entries and congratulations go to:

    And, I love, love your yarn! How more local can it get? :) The picture is lovely, with that ray of sunshine falling onto the ball of yarn.
