Summer knitting

We've had a really hot summer so far & it's been so warm that my choice of knitting has been affected. I had planned to finish Lady Eleanor by the end of July but being sick got in the way

28 tiers of Lady Eleanor


I've now put her down until it gets cooler & instead am knitting a headband for DD:

black lace headband for DD


I'm using Rowan Hand Knit Cotton, from my stash, in black which has proven difficult to photograph properly.

The insects are enjoying my garden so I'll leave you with these:

I'm using Noro Silk Garden 232. It was a nightmare to start with but is behaving now.

Butterfly photos - I adore them. DH is getting very good with his camera - I'm hoping he'll take loads of pics whilst we're on holiday.

Your Lady Eleanor is coming on a lot faster than mine! It looks fab.

Mine's about square, and has been for a while. But I am wearing the cardigan I made with the 232 which I originally bought to make it today *g*

The butterfly photos are lovely too.

Lady Eleanor is wonderful (one of my favourite tunes too). And how did your dh get the butterflies to open their wings? Beautiful peacocks and red admirals...
