I fancied a simple long waistcoat so this morning, when DD and I went to our nearest wool shop, in the quaint village of Dunchurch, with it's lovely thatched cottages, I bought some simple grey DK yarn.
This is Dunchurch - gorgeous, isn't it!
A visit to the library, a little later, meant I came home with a pile of knitting books and a new list of projects to attempt!
I particularly like a number of designs from this one:
......and have already earmarked this for a future project:
Meanwhile, I'm still adding to the patchwork bedspread (although I need to order a few more balls of yarn to complete it) and I'm battling with a navy blue 4ply sweater for my husband (just basic stocking stitch, boringly simple but great for doing while I'm watching TV!)
I also dug out another project that was on 'hold' - a cream lace shawl - and added a few inches to the outside border:
I've just passed the midway point on this edging, so it will be a while until I get to the end, let alone pick up the stitches and knit the main part of the shawl! (I could be in my dotage before it's finished!)
