This week has all been about releasing Fodhla!
Fodhla is the second shawl in The Éire Collection.
Fodhla is the romantic, lyrical sister who sings “Ireland” to you in her melodic voice and shows you her carefree, light and airy personality. Fodhla has an innate dreamy and ethereal quality to her that gives her such a romantic feel.
Each shawl in this collection when I see them on their own I think is my favourite one and Fodhla is no exception, I just love her light and airy feel. She can be knit with one skein of 4ply yarn and when blocked becomes a vision. My problem always arises when I see all three together and then I can’t pick a favourite!
Fodhla is now available on Ravelry!
In another couple of weeks Ériu will be released, she is the last shawl in the collection and I’m very excited to have all three of them out there. This collection was both a lot of work and a lot of fun!! It’s also just the tip of the collection work plans for this year!
You know that cream piece I was working on last week, still working on it. I really did mean to start the blue one but the cream one is just so gosh darn lovely! I mean beads are littered throughout it on both right and wrong sides, lace on right and wrong sides. I’m in just a wee bit of lace and bead heaven and it’s very hard to pull myself out of it. The added bonus to the whole thing, it’s one of my new designs! Even more excited about that!
To counteract all that excitement though has been the kitchen re-vamp. The walls needed sanding back to the plaster and need to be sealed. This is a huge job as our kitchen is pretty darn big not to mention the most used room in the house and where everyone gathers so to put it out of commission is no small job. Add into that the dust from sanding all of the walls back, that has just been horrendous. I’m glad to say that the sanding is finished and the sealer can go on the walls, that will stop the dust and when dry means some paint can go on! I’ve spent most of this weekend scrubbing the dust from everything! No matter how you try to contain it, it just seems to go everywhere! YUCK!
So with just the addition of Fodhla to the the list, it looks something like this;
