Smalls SAL June

Looking back over the month of June makes me feel that it was quite a productive month both for knitting and stitching. I couldn't help but start another Zig-Zag Canvaswork pincushion - same design as the one shown last month but the different colourway make it look quite different. It also has a matching scissor keeper so that is my finish for the Smalls SAL for June as I run out of time to  make up of the pincushion. Naturally this means I will have to make another scissor keeper in the bright colour so two set are completed.
 The large wrap I completed during the month was made in a beautiful 4ply Baby Alpaca yarn from Peru and was a joy to work with and so soft. Quite an easy pattern with a lovely edge.  The other knitting of baby items was completed for the shop so only managed a couple of beanie for charity and I sent them off before taking a photograph.
