…. back again….. err.. me! (Points to you if you’re humming Eminem right now – I’m showing my age.)
I’m sorry my absence has been rather protracted. Life seems to have got in the way and my enthusiasm for blogging has waned accordingly.
But I haven’t stopped knitting and I also have some rather exciting news of a self-publishing nature to share with you very soon! But first, what have I been knitting?
Well, I don’t think I ever properly showed you my finished Follow Your Arrow KAL shawl (a fab pattern by Ysolda Teague)….
This was a really fun and interesting knit. Unlike many mystery KALs (knit-a-longs) this one had options! So for each of the five clues you had a choice of either option A or option B, giving a huge variety of finished shawls.
There were also one of two colour options…… at this point the more observant amongst you may have noticed something about my shawl…… yes, I used three colours. Why? Because I’m impossible and almost incapable of following a pattern without changing something, and I had three colours of the same yarn (Araucania Botany Lace) kicking about in my stash, which would go perfectly with one of my dresses, not the one in the picture above (a happy accident), but this one:
I seem to have amassed rather a collection of dresses with birds on! But you know the best thing about this shawl? Because of the options I chose for each of the clues, I ended up making a BAAAA shawl, entirely by accident. A sheep shawl, made of wool, perfect! Which brings me neatly on to the next project I have to share with you…. but you’ll have to wait for tomorrow for that.
