Projects, stories, memories and myths of knitting and crafts

Monday, 17 May 2010


I have not been able to post lately as life has got busy. We are moving house in six weeks. I am putting squares together that our knitting group made. I have been ill for over a week now.

Amongst all this, there are some bits being created and or finished.

Ishbel is beautiful and I enjoyed knitting every bit of her.

She is blocking and then will be wrapped up for the special one that she was made for.

I do love the pattern and the stitch detail.

The baby jacket is still to be finished and I will try to complete it before the end of the week.

On my needles at the moment is Lala's Simple Shawl which is a free download on Ravelry. I am making it for my mother-in-law as it is her birthday next month. As it is winter in South Africa, it will arrive at the perfect time.

It is knitted in Sidar Escape and she will love the different colours. It will also be easy for her to wash which is important when I make things for her.

Here is the stitch detail. It really is very simple, with rows of garter stitch then stocking stitch with a row of eyelets in the middle. It is all my brain can cope with with at the moment with so many other things going on.

I hope to finish it by Sunday so that it can be mailed off to her in plenty of time.

I am now off to complete the last rows of crochet on the squares blanket and watch Lewis.  My chest still hurts and I will need to be quiet for a little while yet as I do not want to miss my weaving class over the weekend.

The blessing is that I am able to compete some of 'the unfinished' that lurks in my basket when my brain co-operates.
