Who ever knew that knitting a woollen jumper in June would turn out to be a good idea? My second ‘Enchanting’ sweater may well be worn this summer after all.
This knit was coming along quite swiftly until I suddenly realised that I had a deadline to meet. I’ve just managed to resume knitting once more. I still feel slightly confused as to whether I like the colours or not. I do however like the look of this sleeve all curled up! I’m also enjoying the fabled ‘alpaca halo’ of the yoke and sleeve sections.
The opium poppies in the garden have suddenly opened up this last week, amazing colours and heads of blossom. They have been around for years and years; I think that some cross-pollination has been going on as some of the colours look more unusual this year.
This one is not an opium poppy, but so beautiful.
