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
…and one’s moods and the wind chill factor can change a lot around here I can tell ya! LOVELY!!!
Yip, here too :-)
Interested to know what you call ‘bitterly cold’ over there?
About 12 or 13 degrees with a colder wind bucketing along? something like that…. :-) Maybe “bitterly” was an exaggeration…
I’ll say! Thought so you southern wuss ;-)
everything’s relative, right? [hanging head]
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 ;)
It is lovely, I look forward to seeing it, too. Think I might go for mustardy colours, that goes with everything.
Thank Jill :)…..I have that finishing thing problem too, you have no idea how many partly finished designs I have floating around my house…lol
Maybe it’s the sign of a busy and healthy creative brain? Trying to put a positive spin on it!
Lol…you know I’m telling everyone that now!
That is a great shawl! Just beautiful.
I hope you get a chance to look at Sarah’s other designs, they really are just that bit different.
the projects look lovely! :-) hope you will get to complete them before age 72 ha!ha! :-) as for the weather, we were having an amazing one and now it’s awful, looks as if we were back in October !!! :-)
Oh dear, hope it gets springlike again for you. We have had the most amazing weekend weatherwise, been really lucky. :-)
that new shawl looks so pretty!
I’m DYING to start, dying…….
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
