I finished last week’s spiral cowl – but I still need to get a button this afternoon, so a proper picture will follow next week.
I started another gift knit, this one’s going to be for my mother in law. My fist ever shawl. I thought I’d start with something easy, and after much deliberation I chose this lovely (and free) pattern.
After fiddling with the first few stitches it has indeed become a simple and enjoyable knit. Luckily there are changes in the stitches being used, otherwise I’d probably get very bored very soon.
I hope this pattern and I will become great friends, since I’m already planning a few more… but for now, there is a lot of yarn left to use on this one still!
I’ve also been knitting away on a toddler version of the knotted gnome hat, much to Kaya’s delight. More of that in a shop update tomorrow.
I don’t seem to have done a lot of reading this week. I’ve been looking through our stack of library books before having to return them, loving the photographs in The Homemade Home and Folk Quilt Applique, jotting down some ideas from Green Crafts for Children – that’s about it.
Other than that: more late night knitting.
