Time to wrap …

04/10/2016 § 2 Comments

I started this shawl way back – can’t even remember when, but maybe February time.  It’s been keeping me company throughout the year for a few rows at a time, here and there, in the evenings and I decided that as finish was overdue I took it on holiday with me to Cornwall.

My usual style of an elongated, knitted triangle in a variety of stitches that take my fancy, then my favourite pineapple-ish crochet edging.

I did finish it whilst on holiday and brought it home for blocking and end-stitching-in. Almost as soon as October arrived, it was time to wear it during the evenings.  It’s a comforting extra layer around my shoulders and very soft.  The yarn – a linen mix – was a charity shop buy for just a couple of pounds.  It’s gone a long way, as I made this shawl for my daughter earlier in the year.

The apples are ripening and I’ve Sloe & Apple Jelly underway in the kitchen as well as piles of dried fruit, onions, sugar and bottles of vinegar all ready for chutney-making.  Just awaiting my delivery of jam jars and then we’re off …

Patchwork and pickling are on the agenda for this week.  What are you up to?

  • As long as I am about to make one dream come true… by visiting New England, I think I should set my heart on new dreams, more plans… Like, visiting southern England, and learning crochet and knitting skills from you! Your work is beautiful!

    You and your family would be welcome anytime! It’s very good to have dreams – my new studio is one that’s coming true – and it’s been a very, very long time in actually happening. Hopefully worth the wait!
