My summer is here already

I have finally had the opportunity to photograph my completed Summer Swatch Me Sampler. This has been a wonderful 12 week project consisting of the sampler as well as many other side projects and culminating in a design your own project.

The stats for my sampler:
Yarn: Australian Country Spinners 3ply pure wool (also possibly know as Cleckheaton Babysoft)
Needle Size: 3.5 mm
Finished Size: 91 cm x 137 cm
Beads: Miyuki Triangle 8/0 Amethyst Lined Light Blue

I am currently working on the Lilac Stole which is yet another of the possible Summer Swatch Me projects. The yarn for this project is ColourMart Cashmere Merino 2/14NM on 3.5 mm needles. And I am using size 8 seed beads in red.

And just to keep life interesting I have also cast on the Crest o' the wave stole in Touch Yarns Kid Mohair Merino 2 ply.

 


And next week, thanks to Mary, I will be casting on for the Featherweight Cardi for the ColourMart competition on Raverly.
