trying to finish one thing before starting another – as usual

I’ve managed to work a whole two rows of the Spring Fling since last week. At this rate, it’ll be ready to wear when I’m 72.


And this is what I’m really really itching to start on today.

It’s Sarah Jane’s Seafoam Fantasy Shawl, and I bought the pattern from her new shop on etsy.  I also have this pattern of her’s (which I won last year – I always think I never win anything but actually I do!):

which will be so absolutely perfect for the winter we have on our horizon. It’s already bitterly cold in the mornings now (Alex has been eyeing my converted leg-warmers but I’m a very selfish mother most of the time and she ain’t gettin’ nuthin’ hahaha) . I love the idea that it can be a cowl or a hat, depending on one’s mood (and the wind chill factor).

Back soon x

    That wind is bitterly cold today here! Very pretty shawl, looking forward to seeing it. I am just as bad at not finishing things. It really has to change ;)

    Hi Jill!

    You crack me up! You are not going to be 72 when you finish your Spring Fling. Oh my gosh I know exactly how you feel when you see something pretty that you want to make. Now I can’t wait to see both of them done. Thanks for sharing.

    Love and Hugs, Tamara
