As you might notice I have a new free download pattern available on Ravelry - my Rylands Cabled Hat (click on the project number in the side bar and it will take you to the Ravelry page although you might need to login)
This has taken longer than expected to release for various reasons, not least that I got distracted knitting another Featherweight Cardie which I may have said was an extremely boring knit when I made my first one. This second one is in a lovely duck egg blue cashmere merino 4ply so it's going a lot more quickly. I have most of one sleeve and the collar left to do and then I'll share some photos.
I have also been in discussions with Jo, the creative person behind Dodoknitz yarns. She's going to design a colourway for me for a new circular shawl pattern I've been thinking about for the last couple of months. It will be inspired by some of the lovely architectural details in Manchester and will be a mixture of openwork and fine cables with a knitted on border.
That being said I have a semi-circular shawl pattern that I've been meaning to knit and write up for ages and I also now have the yarn for that. Choices, choices...
