Soggy Saturday

The postman returned with some good looking yarn this morning. The Regia 6 ply in crazy colours is for the Baby Surprise Jacket & the Bamboo sock wool is for..... socks..... for me.....! I think the bamboo will be a road trip project when we head for Scotland next month. The next picture is to show how, surprisingly, the garden is surviving the weather. These little patio roses look really vibrant in the dark, rainy weather. Everything in the poly tunnel is thriving -no problem with bolting due to the heat & I have never had so many flowers on one tumbling tomato plant. This is ONE plant!Some are even turning into tomatoes. Ups.. forgot to rotate the photo first!The rain has now arrived in North Yorkshire. Dog & I got VERY wet on our walk when the drizzle turned to heavy rain. Better go and put some fresh washing to dry on the Airer/ round the Rayburn.......!

Thank you for your comment on my recent post, Sensational Socks seems to be a very popular choice, I am thinking of getting it along with the Vintage Socks book.

I love your EZ baby cardigan, I keep seeing these in blogland and recently bought two Zimmerman books, I am really enjoying reading them and hope to cast on for my first Zimmerman knit soon.

Your garden photos are ever so beautiful! And you're going to love the Regia yarn - I'm working with the 4-ply right now and it's so heavenly soft to the skin! Love the colors too!

Thank you, the pink is really fabulous, funny, but I am not normally a fan of the variegated yarn but I love it in socks.

That bamboo yarn sounds interesting. Look forward to seeing what you do with it.

Great yarns there, funnily enough I have just been looking at EZ baby surprise and want to make an adult version when I have spun the yarn for it. Did you get the free download pattern for the baby version. I am going to try and upsize it !!!
I found socks to be the perfect knitting whilst touring on our hols . One word of warning though , stick to fairly simple patterns if you need to road navigate or look at scenery ; unless your concentration is better then mine !! I did one that needed some concentration and I ended up frogging more than knitting at times
