What's on the pins in Edinburgh...

First up is this lovely scarf that Kate is working on. This is her first ever knitting project and she was so excited to have just knit her way through her first ever full ball of yarn! Pictured here is ball number two of Rowan Lima - this alpaca scarf will do a fantastic job of keeping her daughter warm this autumn.


Next, we have Sophia's fantastic sweater dress. Sophia has a bit of a reputation for knitting Kim Hargreaves' sweater dresses and particularly admires her clever shaping and attention to detail. This striking pattern is from Indigo and is knitted in Rowan All Seasons Cotton.

 

Next is a hat that I (Heather) am making. The pattern is from Son of Stitch n Bitch and it's basically my favourite guys' hat pattern ever- I have made so many of these! It takes one ball of Felted Tweed and a tiny bit of scrap DK yarn for the contrast band at the bottom.


This next project is an adorable baby tank top which Susan is working on. The pattern is Sirdar 4443 and the yarn is Snuggly DK in shades 446, 428 and 188. These shades look great together and Susan is such a quick knitter that it'll be done in two shakes of a Bluefaced Leicester lamb's tail.

Finally, we have a long-term project from Sarah, who has been crocheting this amazing ripple blanket in Snuggly DK alongside other projects for the past few months. This looks like it could take ages to complete, but it will make a fantastic blanket when it's done!
