Day off today... a chance to photograph a couple of home-based WIPs.
This first is a sample garment in the new Roam sock yarn, and what I'm making is a simple 4 ply baby jumper.
 There are five different colourways combining self-striping and heathered effects, and they're all named for countryside features - this one is Cairn. I'm a big fan already.

And second, we have a little scarf that's been languishing, altho' having dug it out to photograph, I'm wondering whether my day off would also be a good time to take up the needles again on this particular project. It's made with two balls of Crystal Palace Kid Merino, knitted together to make a supersoft fabric. The pattern is just stocking stitch, with a garter stitch border to minimise the roll at the edge, and a lacy panel from a stitch directory worked in at each end. Very easy. We sell the Kid Merino at £4.75 a 25 g ball - both solid and variegated colourways. It's similar to the Debbie Bliss Angel, although it costs less as it's a less luxurious mix (no silk in it!).
Okay now, back to the knitting...
