Shetland Daisies is now available. Thanks very much for all the nice comments!!
Now that intarsia is no longer a daunting mystery, I’ve immediately started another pattern – a triangle with ever increasing amounts of colours per row – I’m just starting a section with 11 colours per row.
It’s fun choosing the colours, wondering what will follow the field of flowers (probably a band of stranding, then something Estonian, and some stripes), and thinking about the new planet of possibilities that this technique opens up….

Have a great weekend!
The yarn is Jamieson and Smith’s beautiful 2ply jumperweight yarn.
Pattern coming soon, name not decided yet.
Finished and blocking at the moment:
More from Cork and Kerry -
The approach to Mount Brandon on the Dingle Peninsula (the top was covered in mist, so no views of the Aran Islands, etc):
Looking across the glacial valley to the North face of the shrouded peak. This is the most beautiful walk I have done in Ireland, even without the views from the top (click the image for a bigger version):
The view towards the north:
The Wren boys of Dingle (photo and painting in a pub):
The Old Linen Hall, Clonakilty:
A town called Leap:
Are we home yet?
Thanks for all the comments on recent posts!
I’m back home , working on the Jamieson and Smith project again, hoping to finish as soon as possible. I have lots more photos from the trip to Cork and Kerry. One of the highlights was a visit to Bantry House:
