My current work in progress:

Stornoway, designed by Alice Starmore from her book Fishermen’s Sweaters, knit in Frangipani 5-ply guernsey wool in the Aran colorway, on a 3.0mm needle.

On the Edge

I have finished the body of my shawl.


I did an eyelet round all the way around after completing the last body chart.


At the end of the round, I cast on the stitches for the beginning of the edging, using a knitted cast-on.


And I started knitting the edging onto the shawl. Here are the first steps in a very long journey.


I think I know what I will be doing for the next few days. But I will cast on a new project tonight to take on my commute tomorrow, as this shawl is no longer terribly portable.

Lucy would like to nap, but feels the need to supervise me.
