Black And White Wednesday and Wip Wednesday

This B&W Wednesday post was inspired by the rocks on Spiros Beach, as you know I love rock formations. The striations and weathering created by the sea on these beautiful flat rocks just had to be photographed.


This is my Aestlight Shawl off of Ravelry that I have been knitting. I have been wanting to knit a shawl for ages and this was the perfect one:) I love how the colours are knitting up:) The name of this sock yarn is called Agapanthus, a flower that is indigenous to South Africa and the colours really do represent the colours of the flower. This sock yarn was dyed by my wonderful friend Carle’ from Nurturing Fibres, she has the most amazing sock and roving club on Ravelry and produces beautiful sock yarns and roving quarterly for the club. She also has an Etsy shop, Nurturing Fibres. She is such a talented dyer, I love her yarn!

Finally, I have blocked my Shalom Cardigan, it is so soft, I cannot wait to wear it, I just have to sew on the buttons and then it is finished!

Happy Wednesday to you all:)

    Dear Halfpint,
    The name of the colourway is Agapanthus, named after the Agapanthus flower, indigenous to South Africa. The colours really do look like an agapanthus flower:)

    Your Shalom Cardi looks GORGEOUS Linda!! I love that colour! Look forward to seeing how your shawl looks when it’s finished. I am going to post some photos of a shawl that I knitted with Carle’s sock wool to Ravelry later. x

    That really does look like Agapanthus!!! brilliant dying job too!

    Didn;t that Shalom cardi have short sleeves?? I like it much better with the long ones, might even think about giving it a go now as well 🙂

    Love those rock patterns!

    Dear Baa-Mee Kniits
    The Shalom did have short sleeves and then I added long ones, so comfy:)

    I love it when you lead me to other wonderful and interesting people. It’s always an adventure. I want to know how you put buttons on a knitted thing so that the buttons don’t just pull through and put too much stress on the garment. I can see putting squares of some kind of reinforcement on the back – but that could get ugly if you wore the sweater open. Lovely colors. Dramatic sand. Wonderful.
