After knitting a Wombat shawl for both my sister and my mum for Christmas I wanted one for myself too. I couldn’t find my 8mm needles, so in my enthusiasm I used 10mm needles instead. What I didn’t consider was that if, with the smaller needles, three balls of yarn are only just about enough, you might run into problems with larger ones.
And that’s exactly what happened.
My poor Wombat is waiting for the extra yarn to arrive to add the pointy ends. In the meantime, I cast on for Shalom no.2.
I’m very excited that so far I am sticking with my knitting plans for this year, and treating myself to some handknits!
