Some of you have spotted it already - there are new patterns in the side bar available for purchase.
We've got Ocean Waves Shawl which takes 2 skeins of Posh Yarns 'Emily' or 730 yards 4ply/fingering weight yarn. This is a very easy shawl to knit and perfect if you're new to lace.
I've also added 'Kaleidoscope' which takes two 50 gr balls of Jaeger Matchmaker 4ply merino (or 400 yards (depending on size) 4ply/fingering weight yarn). The display socks are knitted to fit a ladies UK size 8 and I used up nearly 2 complete balls of the yarn. So if you're kniting bigger socks please allow more.
And one of my old sock patterns have been added with a new pic which shows up the cable pattern much better - 'Braided Cables' Socks. I've knitted them in Socks that rock but any 4ply/fingering weight sock yarn will work.
I've not done much today. I'm totally exhausted after a busy weekend. I've pretty much documented what I was up to on Saturday. then another busy day on Sunday. We went to church then stayed on for a fellowship lunch which our church has once a month. That finished about 2pm and after 4 hours on plastic chairs I was in agony with my back. then we went on to Plymouth to take part in the 'Make Poverty History' regional rally. That was a lot of waiting around before the main campaign action started and by the time it was finally done I was in even more pain so Simon suggested we stopped at McDonalds on the way home to save me from having to cook. I fell in to bed about 9pm last night totally exhausted.
I've picked up my mum's Victorian Lace Shawl again today. I'vebeen trying to decide what to do about the border (don't think I've got enough yarn) and decided to carry on and frog a bit from the short side if I have to. Got quite a few repeats of the border done today. I've got 3/4 of a long side and a short side left to do. My mum arrives on Friday and I'd like to get it done by then. Fingers crossed.
