Stepping into cardigan design territory.. (And some holiday snaps)

This is a quick post, but I just wanted to say hi! I’ve been on holiday for the last week, and only now after 3 days back am I getting back into normal life!

This weekend I’m on the case working on my newest (and biggest) design – a lovely hooded cabled cardigan in Rowan Wool Cotton.

That isn’t the best picture, but as I say this is a quick post as I feel I should be spending more time working on it than taking photos!

In the meantime, here’s a snippet from our little road trip in Spain – Cantabria to Galicia and back 🙂

Sardines, yum!

Can anyone tell me what this is??!

    A two headed cow and cyber camping?! What a lovely trip – did you have a great time? I had to look close at the cow 😉 and I have no idea what cyber camping could be. Maybe a virtual visit to the woods?
    How’s the cardigan coming along? I see your design book in the pick, are you finding it handy? Can’t wait to see your progress!

      hello! Yes I am finding the book handy, I’m so poor at drawing its good to have the form there ready. The cardi is all worked out, I’m just rethinking which stitch patterns I want to include and being a bit indecisive about it!

    It looks gorgeous there! Looks like you’ve had your creation batteries charged too. 🙂 I love that yarn you’re using, looking forward to seeing the finished cardigan.

    When I saw the sardines I thought it had to be Spain!

    How about that then…I live in Spain and I still haven’t been to Galicia…a place I’m itching to visit tch!
    Love the photos its looks gorgeous . Did you bring any wine back from Rioja
    At least it is cooler up there than down here in Alicante.

      You have to go! I’ve only ever visited northern Spain, (I would have liked to go south as I wanted some sunshine, but there was no surfing!) Out of the three counties we visited Galicia was our favourite. It was much less touristy and had a good personality to it 🙂 I wish we’d flown to A Coruna thinking about it and maybe gone down to Portugal – this will have to be the next one!
