Hopefully on Friday I can show you the FOs that have been causing me headaches for the last week or so. They’ve been sitting on the windowsil glowering at me for the last few days, and I’m hoping someone else will have some inspiration.
I’ve finally started my Christmas crafting, but no pictures on that until the new year, so isn’t it a good job that I started 2 other projects? They’re almost ones from my list and everything!
This yarn is the most astonishing colour. It ranges from pale lilac to the deepest rich purple I’ve ever seen. It’s a joy to crochet with, just like my last purple yarn from Old Maiden Aunt, and it’s had me happily sighing since I started it last night. The pattern is Plumeria frill, and it’s turning out to be interesting already. I love post-stitches!
No, your eyes do not deceive you, that is knitting you see there. Thanks to my lovely knitting friends, I’ve managed to start this shawl, which is by the equally lovely Stitched Together. I desperately wanted to knit something, but the blanket I started was waaaaaaaaay too ambitious for a beginner (anyone surprised? no?). This is a little ambitious for someone who’s never knitted a whole ‘thing’, but I really can’t face making a square scarf, if I’m honest. And I wanted to see if I wasn’t enjoying knitting because the patterns were boring, or if I just don’t like it. I love big shawls, so hopefully this will tell me! The yarn is King Cole Riot, same as I used for my All Shawl, so I already know I like it. The sunlight makes it look much fluffier than it feels in real life!
