Look what you can do when you put your mind to it!
Shawl number #9 is off the needles and on the blocking board.
I still wasn't feeling the love for my STR silkie shawl this morning, so I picked up Starry Zetor instead and decided to hunker down and get it done.
You may remember I had bought this yarn (Dream in Colour Starry) in the spring with the intention of making myself some sparkly socks. But I've been spoiled with our yarns, and by comparison the Starry just isn't very soft. I thought maybe if i did a shawl on large needles, it might be a little softer - not really though the shawl was slightly more enjoyable to knit. But obviously not that enjoyable as it sat half finished for half a year.
Oh well, it's done now (and I even managed to make a Shepherd's pie, an apple crisp and do several loads of laundry!)
Details and proper picture will follow once it's done blocking and I get some daylight to photograph it - probably next Saturday.
So... 46 days to go.... only one shawl left!
Oh- and you remember how Rocky told you he likes to help with laundry?
This is his idea of help...
