I finished my pink lace leaf shawl – I only needed to make a small one as my friend, the intended recipient, is petite:
Obviously it needs blocking! I’ve found it hard to get a good photo of this yarn because it loves light.
I’m currently in a nark with Blackthorn because of this:
However I need to get over that and stick with it. This is intended for another petite friend so I’m not going to knit it to full size, but make it something she can wear under her coat.
And last night, this happened:
A centre pull cake of my Caterpillargreen yarns skein of ‘Concrete & Tulips’, still the most expensive yarn I’ve ever owned when you take in to account the VAT the wretched customs charged me. I admit the centre pull cake was entirely a mistake as I wasn’t trying to make one, but it does show the colours off nicely. The yarn is designed to be used for a top down triangular shawl and the stripes should be equal! I’m entirely copying the Yarn Harlot who said she knitted garter stitch for the grey and stocking stitch for the colours. Here’s what I did last night!
Before anyone comments, I’m giving my fingernails a few days off from colour as I need to do some gardening. 🙂
