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.

The End is Near

Not the end of the world . . . the end of my shawlette.

It’s all over except for the edging. I’ve got 14 rows of edging planned, so this will be done by the weekend and blocking may commence at that time.

That went fast — much faster than I expected. Gotta love a shawlette.

I don’t know exactly how big this baby will end up being after blocking. That’s the fun of doing it on the fly. It keeps things exciting.

Yesterday’s bright clear weather was apparently a fluke — we are back to dark grey skies. So you get photos done with a flash.
