that I can actually show! So much of my knitting at the moment is 'secret'.
I've been working on a few small projects for me too.
Here are a pair of Fetching fingerless mittens, from Knitty summer 2006. I made them in a spare skein of Silk Garden I had left over from something else. They will be useful for holding a coffee cup outside at work in the winter (or summer, as things are going...)
Next up is half an alpaca hat. The flash has washed out all the colour - it's a pale lilac, not pink. It's my first attempt at adding beads, which was much easier than I had anticipated thanks to this tutorial on Debi's blog. I shall be using beads more often in the future.
Finally, a scarf in Handmaiden Sea Silk in the Woodland colourway. It's a simple lace pattern as so many I tried got lost in the colour changes. It doesn't look much now, but I have faith in the blocking process. A little of this yarn goes a long way.
I have joined another swap too: Harvest Sock Swap '07. Participants are asked to knit one sock and send it, with the rest of the yarn and pattern, to their partner along with some other goodies.
