family, home, knitting


Only about 6 weeks late but she got there in the end.  This is Wray – Lily’s Ravelympics project.

Knitted in a 2-ply laceweight from The Yarn Yard this certainly kept her occupied for a while!

Who knew that something so simple looking could require so much design effort?  Keeping the various widths of rib on track really tested her.

We are hoping that Lily will be able to get this sized up and available on Ravelry, but it’ll be her first real attempt at a multi-sized pattern so it could take a little while to get to that stage.   I haven’t the faintest idea how to tackle this so I’ll be on the look out for a Tech Editor to help us out.

In the by now traditional manner, Wray is named after a scenic Cumbrian location – Wray Castle.  The photographs were taken in front of the gatehouse shown here.

We did get some rather strange looks from the locals though!  😀

But then again we’ve never shied away from shocking folks for the knitting cause!
