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

Pebble Beach in a seaside garden.
I took part in a KAL (knit-a-long) on the Curious Handmade forum to make this lovely Pebble Beach Shawlette. The pattern was included in the Unwind programme and was designed by Helen Stewart.
I finished this last week but have been waiting for right light to take pictures as bright orange (like bright red) can be a real bitch to photograph.
As we can see the sea from home the idea of photographing this in our 'seaside' garden amused me and today the light was perfect. Not only to show the true orange of the yarn but also the stitch definition as the pattern.
This is a lovely pattern to knit, quite simple and beautifully written and is now available to buy on Ravelry.
Details of the yarn used etc can be found either on my Rav project page or via an earlier blog post.
I also finished a bobbin of spinning today. The fibre is from some I purchased at Unwind. I am spinning it by gradient and have already started bobbin 2. Holidays are great for getting on with craft stuff that you have put off.
