Le Weekend Shawlette FO

Standard

It took me a lot longer than a weekend but it’s done, it’s been washed and pinned out to dry in my usual blocking spot (a low traffic part of the living room). One of these days I shall get some foam pads and rustless pins!

I received an email this week about the knitting retreat I’m going to in May and they have a show and tell night on the Saturday so I may take this along for that.

What a difference it makes when you use a different weight of yarn. The Queensland Collection Brumbay is more of a DK and the original pattern uses a sock weight wool. The designer used 70 grams, I used 160!

Anyway I’m pleased with it but now that it’s done I shall have to turn my attention back to the cardigan…or not.
