First, I cast on with my latest handspun. It was a bit of an impulse decision when I needed a break from my current deadline knitting. It turns out that chunky knitting aggravates my neck/shoulders more than I realised. Which is not good as I need to finish it tomorrow. It's knitting up quickly though. I did a whole front in 2. hours while watching Badminton Horse Trials this afternoon.
I love elongated stitches. There are so many ways of using them to create different stitches and effects. On this shawlette I decided to use a half-hexagon shape as the basis but cast on many more stitches than the 9 I normally cast on for a half hex shawl. I'm using two different types of crossed elongated stitches.
I've managed a small shop update today. Just laceweight. We have a few skeins of Silken Lace (more of that next time):
Girls go back to school tomorrow. I'm looking forward to some time catching up on stuff.
