Thank heavens for some warm sunshine

See what a little bit of warm sunshine can do, yesterday evening, I knitted up this lot, with anticipation of doing not very much today, other than spending the day in the sun.
Whilst some of the yarns arn't exactly summer friendly, i've been needing to knit up some of my single balls of yarn to clear up some space in my stash, so these little faux fur beauties flew off my needles last night, and as always with this design, I'm loving the results, They're incredibly soft, warm and stylish,
The pashmina shawl has been a work in progress since last summer, having spent all the winter months patiently waiting to be photographed, this morning I gave it some picture luv.

Grown up knitting

Today I'm mostly doing grown up knitting, I call it grown up, cause it's advanced kind of stuff, like, stitch markers, cabling, counting, circular needles -but knitting straight- lots of concentration, and hours upon hours of knitting which don't seem to make any difference in the growth of the garment.

I'm knitting a custom order, which if all goes well, will be a very lovely dark chocolate alpaca cardigan, The customer sent me the most yummy yarn to knit it, so I'm a little tense hoping my freestyle pattern will come out with the results we've discussed,

so if you don't see or hear from me for another week, Just look for a pile of chocolate alpaca threads, I'll be under there somewhere.
Pictures will follow.. later.
