Decisions, decisions!

On Friday Mario and I are off on our very late honeymoon. We are going to Sorrento in Italy.Which, we are told by everyone who has been before us that it is beautiful.It is our first holiday together without children and we are both very excited. The trouble is I am having serious trouble picking the perfect knitting project to take with me. I have disregarded all of my WIP for the simple reason that it will ruin my holiday if my luggage gets lost and my knitting goes with it. I don't want it to be for anyone else. I want to, when using said item in the future remember a wonderful holiday. I don't want anything so difficult that I can't talk or people watch. So I have narrowed it down to these.
In no particular order:-

Cloud bolero by Ysolda Teague in Rowan chenille

Jude by Debbie Bliss in Cathay

Helon by Marie wallin in Patons 4ply cotton

Ok this isn't a no concentration project but it really is lovely.

Lace dress by shirley paden in Patons Dk cotton

Kniting in Public AKA a great weekend

Originaly I was going to spend Saturday in Leeds but when the BlueADT said she was hosting an event in Hull, I packed my bags. I have had a wonderful time. We sat in a shopping centre and I was forced to make this!! It is Opal ladybird a present last year from BlueADT
My first ever swatch. Surprisingly I haven't come out in hives so I might make one again. It was needed to make these . The ultimate in well fitting socks. I plan to do them in a mockery pattern .I just love the idea of mock ladybirds!

This beautiful rippling blue is going to be Juliet by Debbie Bliss I was knitting this to and from Hull on the train. It is in Rowan CashCotton Dk really lovely and soft.But,it sheds fibres a lot,a bit like hugging a blue cat, and I could see people all around the carriage itching their noses!

I even managed a couple of repeats of the edging on the melon shawl. It is taking a little longer than I anticipated.So I am really hoping I will be finished in time for the July 12th deadline.
All of the wonderful photo's on today's posting were taken to the sounds of laughter by the resident photographer in the BlueAdt household which I am very grateful for.
