Caravan of Love Shawl - crochet version of the pattern is available to buy in both UK or US terminology here (don't forget the 50% discount today, 8th March, only) the knitted pattern will be written up soon and automatically added to your pattern library for free once uploaded. The crochet version is made using Krityum Handmade Superwash Sock Yarn in Thums Up and Blush (the Blush I used has silver stellina in it, totally gorgeous). The knitted version is made using Cascade Heritage in Mustard (5652) and Vicki Brown Designs hand dyed 4ply sock yarn in Candy Floss Pop.

Dotty Socks - I finished Betsy's rainbow Dotty Socks (yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply in Rum Paradise with Cascade Heritage in Plum 5605) and one of Darren's plain grey Dotty Socks (yarn is Regia 4ply in Light Grey) and the pattern will be written up for all three sizes and launched by the end of March. Huzzah!

My Dotty Socks are made using Betsy Makes hand dyed 4ply sock yarn in the colourway Aegean Sea.

WIPs

Hay Sweater - I finished the body of my Hay Sweater and am super happy with it. The pattern is from Laine Magazine Issue 3 and I'm using Drops Nord in the colour Plum.

Other Stuff

I like the Anouk Socks from Rachel Coopey, also in Laine Magazine Issue 3.

I also like the beautiful and very cleverly constructed new Striped and Stranded Socks from Carmen at New Leaf Designs, I just wish my stranded colourwork was a bit better so I could guarantee them turning out as lovely as Carmen's, check out her instagram @newleafdesigns.nl and prepare to be inspired.

I'm planning on making the Whitehorse Sweater by Caitlyn Hunter of Boyland Knitworks.

You can find Heather's blog at www.pink-milk.co.uk and her Etsy shop is here. I bought some Socks Yeah! sock yarn from her in the colours Danburite (grey) and Ammolite (totally gorgeous pink).

Ruffle Mitts from Sharon @mycrochetmakes.

Goldenrod Sweater from Linda @elevenhandmade also check out Emma's version @lululoves_uk because she's used a lovely, lovely colour.
