What a weird-weather day it has been today, I woke up to hailstones, then we progressed on to blue skies and sunshine, we've recently had a downpour and now the sun is streaming through the windows......how is a girl supposed to know how best to dress???
Well here I am with an update of my shawl, and quite honestly (not wanting to moan) I don't want to go outside to photograph my shawl in the rain, but the sun is pouring in through our leaded-light (this sounds posher than the fake UPVC that they actually are) windows, and I am getting shadows....
So there we have it, my 80cm circulars are making it impossible to photograph now, as it would be a big crumpled mess and me stressing about the stitches making a quick run for it, and diving off the ends.
I have done seven stripes now, there are five stripes to go, then a border of the multicoloured sock .... ..so I'm guessing there is at least a week left in it for me, with limited knitting time (unless I forgo my motherly duties of course!)
I am loving the knit, really simple to plod along with, and now I am back to good health there is no stopping me! Thanks for all your get-well comments, I am soooo much better........yay!
Sarah, Crafts from the Cwtch has been reminding everyone of the Knitting and Crochet blog week that starts next week over at Eskimimi Makes, and this morning I've signed up too.....it sounds like a good challenge with lots to be inspired by. Why not take a look and think about signing up too? This is the third year that it has been done (obviously the first time I have done it) and this year they have lovely prizes connected to the different post challenges for each day.
Well, better go look out weather we are having now and plan my wardrobe accordingly!
