It's the Comfort Shawl that I am knitting for my Grandma in Singapore. I knitted the shawl in 4ply cashmere/merino from the Knittery with 4.5mm needles & it went really fast. Blocking it was a challenge because of the shape. There is shaping done on the shoulders so that the shawl will sit nicely like a cape. Notice my new blocking mat - I bought these little alphabet squares for A$15 a pack & it's great - they are waterproof & it's much easier to stick the pins in than what I used to do on the carpet.
The shawl fitted Lynette nicely & it should fit my Grandma too as she is also very slim. It measures 58" around the bottom & 15" from the neck to the end. I think it's just the right size to sit on the shoulder & keep it warm.
I hope Grandma likes it & she should be able to wear it next week as hubby is leaving for Singapore this weekend.
Eversince I returned from my holidays, I have been feeling lazy expecially with blogging. I have not been reading blogs (my apologies to all my blogging friends) or the forums or updating my projects on ravelry. I just feel too tired to be sitting in front of the computer ...... but I forced myself to do it yesterday. I spent 4 hours uploading photos, updating my projects on ravelry & also published 2 patterns on ravelry. Remember these ......
and this .....
...... these 2 patterns are now available in Ravelry as free downloads.
I will like to thank Gosia & Linda for test knitting the Snakes & Ladders socks - both of them did a fantastic job !
