Another week, another finished project!
Following blocking, I finally managed to catch my son to take a photo of me with my shawl. And here it is…
The pattern is from the Caron Simply Soft Collection and is available for free, the Knit and Crochet Shawl. I used Rowan Creative Focus worsted yarn which is a blend of 75% wool and 25% alpaca, soft and warm. And although the pattern suggested 5.5mm needles I found that the pattern was knitting up a bit too open so I changed to 4.5mm. Of course, then I was worried about the completed size, but blocking sorted that out. I knitted this shawl as part of a KAL/CAL with the Stitch Along With Us group on Facebook. The next projects are either socks or something from Nicki Trench’s book ‘Cute and Easy Crochet’. I still haven’t decided yet, not least because I’m meant to be finishing off all my WIPs before beginning anything else! However, I’m almost finished the second pair of socks – only about 10 rows left, on each sock. But then there are all the other projects I’ve since found… Oh well, I can always start another, as long as I’m completing others too!
Happy Wednesday xx
