I have been busy knitting away. Firstly, I can reveal my secret knitting... A drops shawl for my nan. I used some lovely Vincent van Gogh inspired Opal sock yarn.
This pattern is a good TV knit, as once you get used to the pattern, you can easily knit away in front on the box. I might have started something with this pattern, as now my mum has knitted a shawl for herself and even made the crochet edge! Next, I am attempting to make a dent in my yarn stash. Firstly some Rowan handknit cotton scraps become some Spa Day facecloths.
I really like the texture of the waffle stitch. And now on the needles, Stjarna stars. The first few rows are rather fiddly, what with 6 dpns and a circular needle on the go at the same time.
The first one is off the needles, and looks rather cute. Photos of the finished item to follow!
