Got to grips with this after a couple of false starts with yarn I wasn't sure about. Thsi is now well on its way with a nice wool/raw silk mix I got from the Scrapstore a couple of years back. Pleased with progress so far, and it knits up quite quickly - not the best of photos, but it reminds me of a moth...........:) The yarn wshes and blocks well, so that will make all the difference to the finished shawl. I've a pair of socks to do in a hurry, starting tomorrow, I need to wind the wool to finish another shawl and have cast on for a pair of WW2 glvoes to keep me sane in between bouts of shawl knitting LOL. Also , blanket squares need to be doen this week, a pair of striped gloves and a balaclava.
....MrsL's knitting blog. "Figheade" is Gaelic for knitting.............I had one a while ago, of a similar name, but amalgamated it with my main blog. However, I think I do enough knitting to justify a separate blog, so here it is ! I'll be putting on spinning too, possibly crocheting, but it will mainly be the knitting - what I'm working on, finished things, knitting for others, my fledgling knitting business, knitting book reviews, good links, bad knitting things (yes, they DO exist LOL). Hopefully you'll enjoy what I'm doing and feel inspired to pick up some needles yourself.
