A new month and lots of new projects!
That tantalising close-up shows the beginnings of an aran-weight shawl: the Lonely Tree Shawl by Sylvia Bo Bilvia, which is a free pattern, also available in a back issue of Knit Now magazine.
In return for all this woolly goodness, I am knitting Christine a pair of socks – yay!

This weekend I made a start on both projects.
The Boy is home for a week before he heads off for a summer of festivals and fruit-picking. Sewing is an anti-social, noisy activity, better reserved for days when I am home alone, so I stuck to knitting and gardening.
But as you might expect, I have lots of sewing plans bubbling away in my head.
Top of the list is a piece of 1970’s insanity involving broderie anglaise, bandana-print cotton and Betsey Johnson :D
Cowboy boots at the ready, girls!
