Yarn Along

P1060139I finished this divergent series knit-along almost two weeks ago, and a second one was finished, pressed and gifted last weekend.
I really enjoyed this knit, what a great way to use up leftover sock yarn. The finished cowl-shawl is so cosy and generously sized without the knitting up of it getting too boring (stripes always help!), and there are so many different ways to wear it.

This brings the count of used up stash yarn this year up to 4,407 metres. (And I won’t tell you that I’ve just ordered a big pile of new yarn to fill the gap in my basket.)
Last year, I thought I might like to knit a shawl a month. I think I made it to seven overall. This year, I have number seven almost ready to cast off. Like my mum said the other day, my Christmas presents might just be finished by June!
