What's warm, squishy and looks like porridge ...?

After last week's swatching, my latest design is well under way. In fact the pattern is written and I'm  checking it through and making final adjustments while knitting the sample in this delicious porridge-like yarn (warm, comforting and perfect for cold mornings). It's the second time I've used Rowan Drift and it's just lovely in this shade (China Clay 911) - a definite change from my usual sock yarn and thin needles - and because I couldn't decide which side of the work I loved the most, it's a reversible design.
WIPs and books: what's warm and squishy...?
All being well, the FO will be ready to show you at the end of the week, especially as I just finished my latest book Replica by Lexi Revellian. I borrowed it from the Kindle Owner's Lending Library (if you have a Kindle and are an Amazon Prime member, you'll be eligible for this, you can access the books from your device and borrow one per month). It is a quick read and quite fun, basically a cat-and-mouse story, which I read in a few sittings. I have lots of other books in my queue that I can't wait to get started on... but first I must finish that knitting! 


  1. Smooshy looking and looks perfect for winter.

  2. what a wonderful description for it!

  3. What a soft and gorgious looking yarn you use! I'm curious what you're making, keeping an eye on your blog ;-)

  4. Ooh that yarn is lovely and looks so soft, definitely smoochy...(love porridge too). I'm intrigued to see the pattern, I must remember to come back and check it out.

  5. That does look lovely and warm.....and I like the stitch changes.

  6. Ok, looking forward to seeing the whole thing!
