I shawl make all the pretty things!

Happy Monday lovely people ❤️

I hope you all had a fab weekend, we came back from our trip down to Melbourne and today was back to work. I have been trying to catch up with all of your wonderful blogs but I have to say that today was really busy so hopefully I will get more time during the week to do this 😊

I don’t know if it’s because the weather has been so much colder or because I’ve been trying to be a bit more active on Instagram, but I’m just feeling so inspired right now, I just want to make all the things!

I’ve been working quite a lot on my virus shawl over my mini holidays and I have made it to the second skein of Holst Garn Coast. Yay!

This colour is called Marlin and I just love it! because the shawl is getting so much bigger, I think I’ll only be able to get two or three more pattern repeats with this colour, and then I still have my third blue to add.

I have also recently stumbled on the Blurre shawl from Addydae Designs. I LOVE it! It’s just so clever how the colours blend into each other to form this really cool effect. I had to make it! I’m using some Schoppel yarn I bought in Amsterdam last year and the leftovers from my socks for this. This is where I’m at so far and I think it looks like a sunset, so pretty! 😍

If you want to make your own Blurre, Deanne (the designer) is hosting a CAL on her Ravelry that will run until the 30th of June, so you still have time to join if you want to 🙂

That’s it for me for today, I wish you all a great week and I’ll be back on Wednesday with some sock WIP!

Charmed Gauntlets – Nerdish Delights

Happy Wednesday readers!

As you may know I am in Melbourne, Victoria this week and it is freezing cold! So cold in fact that I thought I needed to make myself a pair of wrist warmers! I’ve wanted to make those for a while, as I won the pattern from Denise from Nerdish Delights on one of her giveaway on Instagram (I was super excited, as I had never won anything before!). I guess it just wasn’t cold enough in Brisbane but here, it sure is. I used LionBrand Heartland to make those and they turned out so warm and cosy.

I just LOVE the pockets on them! They are just so handy to carry some loose change/ credit card/ lip balm. I’m super glad I finally got around to making those as I’ve worn them everyday since I finished them last Saturday. If you want to make those, you can find the pattern in Denise’s Etsy shop and I think she also sells finished wrist warmers there as well.

I hope you guys are all having a great week, and hopefully I haven’t frozen to death by Friday for my next post 😂
