Wet Weekend and a Mixed Bag

The weekend saw me progressing a few knitting projects in different ways

Final block on the Mountain View Cardi (Purple Mountain on Ravelry)
Toe-Up Slipped stitch Socks in The Knittery's slim sock (PSC - August in Arrears project on Ravelry).

I have also now turned the heel on Sock 2 for the PSC July hearts and flowers socks from Wendy Knits in Yarn Pirate (Merlot) only three pattern repeats to go.
I am continuing on with the Purple Alsace Monster for the Easter Show Toy Cabinet. (He looks a bit like a purple Kermit at the moment without his bits).

Best of all Friday morning I was greeted by a new Yarn Club package from knitabulous. It included one ball of Mumbai Skies Lace Merino a gorgeous blue/grey.

It was accompanied by some custom dyed Blue Black lace (Baruffa CashWool) totally stunning! Thanks Ailsa (knitabulous).

And Did I mention the fantastic club drawsting bag that came with it which was immediately packed with projects for the Knitters Guild meeting on Saturday.

I have started Cedric the Celtic dragon in the Blue Black Baruffa CashWool from Ailsa.
