This is place for me to natter and a lot of it is about knitting.

Just finished this project (it is blocking as I type) it is 'Windward' by Heidi Kirrmaier - available via Ravelry. I loved making this, it is a quirky, quick knit that kept my interest but didn't fry my noodle.
You see the unusual shaping here and the changes in texture give the knit such depth.
I knit this in a yarn from The Uncommon Thread that is supplied exclusively to Loop. It is a light BFL DK and I knit it on a 3.25mm circ. The colour way is one of my favs from this dyer and is called Tea Smoked. It has a subtle sheen and smoky patches.
I'll post nicer/better pictures once it has finished blocking.
