The knitting bug is still with me, please stay for as long as you can old friend.
So I finished this shawl that has been on my needles since the end of January 2012. I love getting projects done that have been with me this long, and I especially love this one. This shawl is huge and warm and I absolutely love it.
It is knitted with single strand of un-spun Icelandic wool and the alpaca together and then just the alpaca, that gives it great drape and warmth and a very nice texture. And I love the tassels. I wasn’t sure about adding them, but once I did I was super happy with them.
So as a reward for finishing 2 old projects, I started a new one off course! Safety Scarf by Stephen West. I am finished with parts 1 and 2 out of 6.
I visited my friend Sigurlaug and her beautiful 7 weeks old baby girl.
