It’s been a lovely day here in Tenerife, about 24C, which is comparable to the weather since I’ve been here. It’s been very windy but it is the winter here so I’m not complaining!! I’ve just come back from my compulsory daily walk, which I decided to do at 5pm and not in the middle of the day (there’s no chance I’m going to be up for going early before the heat of the day!). Today I have finished the lace section of Annis and started the short row shaping. I’m really enjoying this pattern – it isn’t complicated and after I had some good advice on Nupps, I didn’t have any problem with the second and third rows of them!
I’m definitely going to knit this in a sock weight on the 4.5mm needles as I think the pattern will be lovely in a denser fabric. Though not for a while! I have also discovered that if I sit at a table with circular needles and let the table take the weight of my knitting that my wrist doesn’t hurt. I am sure this may seem *completely* obvious but it never occurred to me! I’ve also knit a bit on the Await shrug:
After discussing the CAL with quite a few people in the comments on my post a few days ago I have decided not to continue with it but to turn the 30 squares I do have into a cot blanket for my step granddaughter. That way I do have an FO but I also don’t have to force myself to do something I don’t want to do. It feels like a positive way forward, and it means if I want to mess round with the rest of the yarn I can!
