No longer a mystery

This isn’t:

ms3 06-08-07

but The-Book-Which-Shall-Not-Be-Named is!
Yes, my local, friendly library came through and I’m now approximately 0.001% finished (I’m up to Chapter 12)!

Project Spectrum – final triad:

Orange. Purple. Brown.

Three of my favourite colours, all at the same time!

I had to pick one to knit something in, so I chose two!

lace up tank 06-08-07

Remember the swatch from way back when? Well, it’s all grown up!

The pattern is from Elann and is called the “Sonata Print Lace-up Tank” – snappy name!

In total contrast to Wren, there will be few or no modifications at all to this baby! What is very strange though, is I’m knitting the 38″ bust. And it fits. Weird! I haven’t been a 38″ bust since … the last time the Spice Girls were in fashion?

The yarn is from 100% Pure Wool and is the merino worsted in combined colours. I can’t remember the exact colour name, but I think it was something like Chestnut or Marron (French for chestnut!) . Actually, I found that colourway on the site but if it was that, the colour is way off!

Turing sock:

Still motoring along on sock 2, and thanks to my test knitters I’ve discovered some mistakes. I suppose that’s why I have testers! Sorry if you missed out this time around, I have plenty of other sock patterns bouncing around in my head. Not all will be publicized here during the making, but they will be eventually. And the deadlines will hopefully be longer!

I forgot to mention in my last post that you need to have already signed up to the Summer of Socks to take part in the competition. Doh! Sorry.

Next time:

I’ll tell you more about the bombshell my mum dropped on me about not loving me any more not needed any more socks. I know.

  1. I love the colour of your MS3! You are certainly doing better than I am. I’m also loving the red cardi… It has been YEARS since I’ve made a garment, I’m still enjoying trying to improve my lace skills, and playing with luxury yarn. I think that if I had to buy a whole sweater/jumper’s worth I’d have to go back to nasty old akrylik!


  2. Ms3 is looking fab and I love that tank pattern! It is perfect – I downloaded it straight away 🙂
    First Turing sock completed and second one down to teh heel flap – Would you like photos? 😉


  3. OMGCB, what kind of a mother is she?? Thank your lucky stars you live ‘over there’, because if you lived here, the Government will be intervening on your behalf!!
    How unfair that it’s all your colours at once!!! Top’s looking lovely. It’s Jaffa colour!!
