Where am I?

I’ve been stupidly busy. I’ve been faffing around with the knitting and I did finish a couple of things….  but I’ve started and frogged several more.

First up, I did this beautiful shawl from an issue of Knit Now.

A lovely shawlette

I used a beautiful sock wool my mum got me from Purl City Yarns, now closed, it was so pretty and didn’t deserve to be reduced to a pair of socks who’d hide away, so I made a wee lace scarf. Sadly I didn’t have enough to do a full on shawl, but I feel I did pretty well and I’m very proud of this. It was so lovely to knit, even though I had around 300 stitches on a pair of straight needles. I’d definitely buy this again, it’s called Lang Yarns Mille Colori Socks and Lace Luxe and is available here at Love Knitting. I highly recommend it, it’s so soft and was amazing to knit with. When I broke it the strand even felted back together!

I did finish a pair of socks too, knitting both at once. But being very busy I’ve not done as much as I’d have liked.

    That’s lovely! Sock yarn works so well for those triangular lacy scarves. I’ve made a few as gifts and the colors have turned out beautifully. Well done for making that on straights – that must have been very tricky! 🙂
