More knitting and some weaving plans!

Despite my many, many plans I still seem to be getting little knitting done -  I should possibly try projects with heavier weight yarn hehe!

The second clue of the Woolly Wormhead Mystery Hat was released last weekend and  a lot of my week has been spent working on the body of the hat.  I have to say, I generally dislike avoid reverse stocking stitch simply because my purling is significantly slower than my knitting (and my tension is always looser if I Norwegian purl) but I've really enjoyed the effect it gives.

I'm making the smallest size in the slouchy version and as the final clue for the crown was released this morning, I should be finished soon!

I'm also still working on the  Hermione Hearts Ron Fingerless Gloves for my sister and am a third of the way through the second glove now.  Sadly no photos as yet as they are a glove that will really benefit from blocking.

My next project will be my first woven shawl on my new Ashford Knitters Loom!  It's a planned Christmas gift for my mother-in-law and will be a wide shawl using the lovely West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 Ply - the warp will be the Butterscotch and the weft, Nutmeg and Cardamom with some Bergere de France Angel added for texture.  Fingers crossed it'll work okay - the yarn colours compliment each other wonderfully so it'll only be my beginner weaving that might let me down...I shall be swatting up on techniques later!

I've also spent some time last week making my own fauxdori and notebooks and have restarted my knitting journal and a bullet journal which I shall have to blog about later this week!..
