An elegant sufficiency

Done!

The room is empty, save for the sofas and the shelves, both awaiting collection from the recycling people. It was tough going towards the end, for we were both tired of feeling dusty and cobwebby and moving such a quantity of books is quite hard work!


Not only that, but I just finished binding off the edge of the Colinette shawl too. Thanks to Della I was tempted to order Lucy Neatby's Knitting DVDs, which arrived a couple of days ago. I have seen only part of one so far but have learned so much already and used Lucy's modified bind off to great effect - quick, neat and definitely the one to use on such a loosely knitted piece. I'm looking forward to watching some of Lucy's sock tricks now.
(The shawl measures about 50" square, btw, perfect for keeping someone's legs warm in the evening)
Can't decide what to cast on next - I think the Posh Socks yarn from this month is destined to be something other than a pair of socks. Any suggestions?

  • Gill that is AMAZING, I'm so impressed that you got it done in such a short time frame. The room is enormous but i still don't think you should share!

  • What a wonderful workroom that's going to be. I also love the shawl, beautiful colours.
