Finished scarf… now the shawl

Finally finished a lace scarf that’s been work in progress for ages. I made one of these for myself before, this is a sale one and I thought I could manage another without too much trouble. Eesh the boredom of the same 2 rows of pattern over several feet of knitting! All I can say is it had better sell after this. I’ll take a few pics of it before and after blocking, it’s still in the ugly duckling stage.


I’ve dug out the crochet hooks for what I think is my next sale project. I bought a job lot of coned yarns and among them was this lovely biscuit coloured 1 ply cotton. It felt a bit delicate as 1 ply so I ran a test sample through the spinning wheel to make it a 2 ply. It took a good while to fill a bobbin but the shawl I’m working it into is lovely to handle. Given that I have 10+ cones of the stuff to get through, hopefully it’s popular *grin*

Crochet Shawl

Beginning to wonder if I’m a glutton for punishment with all this lace.

Anyway this is the pattern I’m using and a picture of what it should look like *grin*
