Welcome Winter

The weather has cooled down. Sitting under a blanket on the (new) lounge knitting away is where you'll find me almost every evening making the last couple of weeks very productive

Bring it On baby blanket in Pickles Extra Fine Merino in Milk, Latte, Frost and Granite.

Arwen Keyhole Scarf (Ravelry link) in Jo Sharp Desert Garden Aran Cotton in Dew (for me, not child who *thinks* it's hers)

Buscke's Best Beanie for a newborn coming next week using Jo Sharp Classic DK in Porcelain with Bendigo Classic 8ply in Smoke and Bendigo Melody in Crimson.

Winter Femme in Bendigo Classic in Smoke

and finished today, a Milo vest for Isabella. I didn't do any cables but added a trim at the bottom by;

P1 row
* YO, K2tog repeat * whole way around
K1 row
P1 row
cast off

The sewing will be back though, I've got two quilts to make as soon as some fabric arrives.

Speaking of the new lounge... LOVE it
