I’m back again, things like work get in the way of what I really would prefer to be doing!
So. What have I been up to? Well, knitting-wise, I finished the waffly jacket and absolutely love it. I did forget to put in a buttonhole but actually I rather like it fastened with a shawl pin, it suits it. I’m also getting on really well with the Boyfriend Hug sweater. I’ve finished the body, all but the front neck shaping. It is knitted in the round so just the sleeves to do now. I’ve put it on hold for a while though because I am currently knitting an Ishbel shawl for my boyfriend’s sister. It’s a special gift for a special person who is ill at the moment and it means a lot to me that I will be able to give her a gift that is truly from me, with love. Flowers are lovely and chocolates are yummy but a handknit shawl is special. I am enjoying knitting it, it’s in Cygnet Wool Rich 4ply in the colourway Pinemix and I am going to bead the last lace sections.
