As I was saying (three months ago, I’m afraid) my TV knitting was Spicy Sparrow:
which is Helen Stewart’s Red Robin Shawl in my favourite West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4-ply. I even added tassels – aren’t they fun?
Despite getting covered in fluff from the Kidsilk Haze I finished Misty Falls, which is gorgeous:
Don’t you just love the silky softness of it? It’s Tetiana Otruta’s Little Falls and it took me six weeks to knit. Now that’s a long time – but I’ve been a bit busy.
It’s a full version of Gudrun Johnston’s Hansel in Jamieson & Smith’s 2ply Jumper Weight. I ordered a cone of the stuff (which came really quickly) and I’ve got loads left. The yarn is slightly oiled for machine knitting, and I love the smell. I was reluctant to wash and block the shawl just for that reason, but it’s lovely and warm and cosy. Ahhh.
There’s still time to join the Hapalong – the final cast-off date is July 12 – and I might even cast on another myself.
So now we’re just about up to date. Happy knitting everyone!
