Knitting all the Things

Lately I have been getting a lot of joy and relaxation from knitting.
Here are 4 things recently off my needles:

Scatness Tam.
This is a design by Kate Davies and is inspired by the Viking and Pictish shapes of Scatness, an ancient site on Shetland.

And the inside floats:

Dunedin scarf
Next is a Celtic knotwork shawl by Lucy Hague. I made this using a hand dyed yarn by Kate Selene.  I chose it because it reminds me of the bright green grassy fields with black cows grazing in the summer.

Aran Tweed cardi
Made this using a Patons pattern and varigated yarn. Really love wearing this as a jacket if it's just cold. 

Theme and Variation hap
This is a fun and easy shawl from Kate Davies book "The Book of Haps"

I think I am ready for Autumn!

If you want any further details, please ask!


  1. These are all absolutely gorgeous! The cardi / jacket is fantastic, I bet it feels like wearing a hug :)

    1. Thanks Allison, that is such a great way to describe the cardi!

  2. A friend of mine introduced me to Kate Davies' designs recently, they're all so wonderful, and your hap is just stunning! One of these days I really am going to have to learn to knit!!

  3. You've been very busy Nessa. They're all lovely but I'm especially taken with your Scatness Tam - the colour choices are perfect! Juliex

  4. Beautiful knitting Nessa I like the Celtic knot shawl.
