Until I looked back through the photos downloaded on to the computer, if you'd asked what I've been knitting I would have answered "not much". I don't know exactly how, or when, but I did manage to start and finish a few things.
First up- The Bobby Sweater from Tadpoles and Tiddlers. I've made many sweaters from this book, multiple times. This little gansey is for a new great-nephew. I made the smallest size and used about 1/2 a skein of Baah's La Jolla yarn.
Elsebeth Lavold's Silky Wool XL from the Folk Shawls book.
Up next, and with 2 skeins of Ella Rae Lace Merino, a pattern I've had in my stash for a long time. Finally. This is Scalene, a very clever keyhole scarf. I love the yarn combination I chose, but my expectations for how much I was going to love this scarf may have been too high. I'm not sure I like it all that much. It needs to rest in a quiet place for awhile. Maybe I'll like it better after we've had a little break from each other.
This is some of that beautiful angora/ merino roving, spun and knitted into an original design.
Meet Mistress Tippet.
Outlander during the boar hunting.
While we were watching you commented on how it would be nice to have something like that to keep the back of your neck and shoulders warm but would not get in the way. One of the reasons I have to watch these episodes multiple times is because I am dissecting the hand knits. Really. Too bad Jamie doesna wear as many as Claire does, aye?
But Mistress Tippet takes it a step or two further. Buttons allow you to wrap and secure the ends at your shoulders for a pretty draped cowl.
