Knitting Update – A Finish

I finished my first shawl!  It was a lot quicker than I expected but it didn’t really take me long to get back into remembering stitches.  The body of the shawl was really quick as I only worked on it a couple of evenings and a couple of hours at the weekend when I needed a break from my sewing.  The border on the other hand took a couple of evenings and a weekend morning especially the bind-off.

Here it is all blocked and dried.  The yarn was from Easyknits and the colour is Boy Oh Boy Blue and is a gorgeous colour, almost peacock blue.  I’ve got several options for my next shawl but I haven’t made up my mind which one will be next but it will be a couple of weeks before I start the next one.  I have a ball already wound but I’ve changed my mind on the pattern so I’m looking around at what else I can make with it.

For now I’m continuing with Computer Catastrophes.


A crafter of many years, now using this blog to share my ongoing projects and tips for others to enjoy. I mainly concentrate now on Heaven and Earth cross stitch designs - with several projects on the go at any one time. Also often found knitting shawls and socks, papercrafting. Easily distracted by new cross stitch patterns. Slave to a tyrannical black n white cat called Yuen.
