With a new year in YOP starting and shawls being on my list I thought now was the perfect time to sign up to Sarahs group on Ravelry for a KAL.
We are having a shawl KAL and are each picking a shawll from Boo Knits on Ravelry. I after much debating settled on Quite Conintental, there were a few in the running so expect to see another Boo Knit shawl before to long!
In my stash I had some Fyberspates Silk that I won called Leprechaun, if you’ve followed me for sometime and my old blog you will know just how utterly perfect this yarn is for me and I’ve been saving it. I won three skeins of it and I’m using one for the shawl. I should have enough in 1 for the shawl I’m thinking.
But first as the title suggests I’ve some stitching to finish up. I have a wedding commission piece I’m stitching for my Aunt who just loved the piece I did for my cousin and thought how perfect it was for a wedding gift. I am truely flattered so I agreed to do one for her and frame it so she could use it for a wedding gift for her husbands niece. I have not stitched in a few months as the mojo has gone, don’t get me wrong I am enjoying stitching this piece but I know any length of time on it and I’ll want to leave it there so I’ve been working steadily on it this past few days and evenings and will continue to do so this week and finish it up. This will free me up to devote my time to my fiber crafts which at the moment is what I’m wanting to work on. This is quite normal for me as the last few years once the summer has hit I’ve not wanted to stitch so for now once the wedding piece is complete I’m going to put my needle aside and give myself over to fiber !
Of course in true fashion not only with the yop list and the signing onto the 26 pairs of socks and this kal I’ve reaquainted myself with the Harry Potter group on Ravelry. I had to be less involved with so much on between knitting and stitching but now with stitching set aside I think I can combine YOP with the HP group. I have my first pattern printed for a HP class which will also work for my YOP but more on that on Sunday.
So for now here is my shawl which I will cast on later this evening,
I think I’m going to have to call this shawl Leprechaun after its yarn as it is just so perfect !
