Blueberries, Grapes...

...Strawberries & Cream - with a hint of Chocolate.

Sounds yummy doesn't it but before you start looking for these goodies to tuck into I have to warn you there is nothing edible in the coming photos.

I was all set to give you a peek of some new colours that had just come in at my local Yarn shop - but the batteries on the camera gave-out. So whilst I was waiting for them to charge, I got stuck in.

I have been waiting for a 'blue' to arrive. Up until now the nearest has been a blue/green mix that you have all seen recently on here.
Lovely mix of shades and there is just the hint of silver scattered through the yarn. This is my next lot of knitting to make a start upon.
The various brands of yarn that have been available locally have had some lovely mauve/grape shades and here are 3 scarves I finished about a week ago. One 'ruffle' scarf is just shades of mauve whilst the other is darker shades and has quite visible silver edging. The third scarf was a different type of yarn (much more expensive - but I wanted to give it a try). It is very blingy and knits as frills rather than ruffles - nice effect but I won't be buying any more...it wasn't much fun to knit with. These will soon be winging their way to Germany.
This is what I got stuck into last night - soft Strawberries & Cream shades with milk chocolate thrown in for good measure and just a hint of silver.

The way the temps have dropped this week I think there will be plenty of opportunites to wear all these.............................
