Confined to barracks by rain and howling winds yesterday, I spent the morning int he kitchen cooking, with knitting in between. The pink cloths are for the bathroom; I'm about to re-decorate in there, pinks and bluses, possibly florals, so set to and got these done from the cerise cotton I got at the show a few weeks back. Very pleased with them, they're lovely and soft, and should wear well.
As for teh Shipwreck shawl - well!! LOL I have fallen out of love with the printed pattern, but not he shawl itself. Having a long hard look at it, I think the variegated greens aren't showing the patterning to its best advantage, so that's being undone. I've started another shawl with the green, a feather and fan pattern, nice and easy, but quite effective, and the pattern shows up better, being much simpler. Hey ho!
I got a lovely HUGE cone of very fine wool in a pale-ish grey at the scrapstore on saturday, might be destined for some lacey gorgeousness soon...........
....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.
