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?
