Some Finished Objects and finally my new pattern......

I have to admit that I have been knitting a lot just recently - I think to the annoyance of the rest of the family who seem to always see me with needles in my hands!  I have also taken to knitting on the road - but only when I am a passenger!  I have been working up in Dubai a lot recently and I have a driver (courtesy of work - and thankfully so since the Sheikh Zayed Road is about the most dangerous in the world!!) so I sit and knit in the back rather than watch the madness going on outside the car!

It has also been much much cooler which is beautiful! So its the start of those times when we can get away to the desert and also attend our much loved sporting events, not to mention carry on with the golf lessons (more about that in another post I think!!)

Anyway I finished the lovely Courtenay Beret by fellow Amira Ramblingroses aka Preeti.  Such a lovely and easy pattern.  I used Dream in Color (COLOUR) worsted weight and this fabulous bright green.  The great thing is that I have about half a skein left so I think I can make some fingerless mitts to match!


The next FO was inspired by a Cat Bhordi video on You Tube where she showed us how to make tendrils.... well who could resist!  So I decided to use up 2 skeins of Noro Yarn to make up this little scarf, which I pretty much finished during our trip to the gorgeous Qasr Al Sarab during Eid!




Then......drum roll......... finally I have published my Lordship Lane Hat and Scarf pattern on Ravelry!!  This really simple pattern seems to have taken me an age to put together - partly because Flo was very unwilling to model for me and partly because I have had so much going on recently - was difficult to get an hour together to be able to publish.  Anyway its a free pattern since it was fairly simple to come up with and write up! Go check it out!! Fantastically quick pattern ideal for last minute Christmas gifts if you live in a cold country or are visiting one over the festive season like we are!  With huge thanks to Jocelyn and Mel who test knitted the pattern for me!
