Those of you who pop by every now and then, will know that previously I have joined in with three of Crafts from the Cwtch's knit-a-longs...two Veera shawls and a pair of toe up socks.....the decision for the next project, hung in the balance for a while, (I was really not sure I wanted to do socks again so soon!)
Thankfully (for me) it was decided to have another shawl knit-a-long picking one of the many shawls from a whole range by Boo Knits this was a task in itself as they are all so lovely...but I settled on Quite Continental.
Next task was to pick out some suitable yarn, which was cause for hours of yarn browsing....which was becoming a little stressful in the end...but someone had to do it!
Finally, after spotting another person in the Crafts from the Cwtch group's suggestion, I took a look at six skeins which proved to be a very happy discovery. A few clicks, a day's wait and a lovely squishy parcel arrived in my post box.
So here it is, 75% Extra Fine Merino, 20% Silk and 5% Silver Stellina Sparkle - in Ember Glow
Wound and ready to go....it's beautifully soft, you can just see the glisten....perfect.
And small beginnings.....the first hour of attempting to begin was fraught...lots of breath holding....but I got there once I had realised I was being totally blonde....hopefully onward and upward from here!
