A Shawl

Filed under:Shawls,Works In Progress — Aileen @ 11:14

I’ve been doing a lot of knitting recently. My movements have changed this term and I have more knitting time on the train to and from work. I’ve also almost completely stopped working on more than one project at a time which hasn’t happened… since I started knitting!

I finished up my second Heather Hoodie. It languished for a while but I got it finished off quite quickly. It took nearly a full week to dry after blocking but it was worth it. I need buttons for it yet so hopefully I will be able to share proper photos at the weekend.

Since finishing it, I’ve started on a shawl for my teacher for Christmas. She’s Greek and dislikes the damp Irish weather. I picked up some of the new Studio Donegal merino 2-ply at the Knitting and Stitching Show last week with a mind to making this for her.

It is a super-soft yarn and I love the slight colour fluctuation throughout – slight tinges of blues and oranges. It’s lovely.

It’s getting to be quite the monster over the last few days so I might cast off before the end of my ball, I’ll see how it goes.
