Some Woolly Doings

After the dramatic weather at the start of the week things have calmed down and we've even had a snippet of sun. It's very cold though!

 We had a beautiful rainbow over the harbour.

I've just noticed that boat in the foreground is called 'Serenity'. It seems to sum up the picture doesn't it? 
( actual reality = bitingly cold wind! )

Shall I show you my new woolly creations?
I've knitted myself a jumper in these gorgeous colours.

 I bought a ball of the coppery brown to go with the multi coloured wool. I think it matches quite nicely.
I love this colour combo so much, I'd like to cover the whole world in it.  

But I won't just yet
 Because I have a large bag of double knit that's been waiting patiently to be made into a shawl.

I spent ages choosing which colours to use but there was one in particular that had to be included. Can you guess which one?

Oh my lordy how much do I love crocheting with that delicious glittery purple?! Yes it was the purple glitter one. Did you guess right?

Purple glitter. ♥♥♥♥♥ That's all I'm saying.

The photos of the harbour are stunning! Your colourful palette is the same whether in wool or paint... Joyous!

Its lovely to see a little sunshine! I do love those stripy blankets. I am beginning another one after being inspired by you to finish my first blanket last year.
