Yes, I've got another new cast on, that's three already this month, where will it all end?
With two new pairs of socks already on the needles, I decided to have a look for a shawl pattern. I was rather taken with quite a few wraps which I came across and thought they'd make a nice change from a shawl. It was hard to decide between them but in the end I've decided to go with Beach Days by Tracie Millar. By the way, isn't my new project bag so cute? I bought it from AnnieOBTextiles on Etsy and it's a lovely size to hold this type of project.
I'd already decided that I'd like to knit a three colour design when I was originally looking for a shawl pattern and I'd chosen the yarns I was going to use from my stash. As it turns out, the Beach Days wrap sample shown in the pattern isn't a million miles from my own colour choice. I've gone with two semi solid colourways from Jellybeans Yarns, Midnight and Golden (a one of a kind), and a speckled yarn from Norah George Yarns in The Room of Requirement colourway. These are all 75% superwash merino 25% nylon.
I haven't got very far as yet, I've just used the blue and made a start on the wavy edging, but I'm loving the pattern already.
This is the last of the new cast ons I've had planned but never say never, there may be more very soon, there's always lots of patterns which catch my eye.
