spring shawl project – the story so far


Spring Shawl Collage

Hello friends and fellow knitter’s! It’s been a dull and grey week with rain, fog and today even snow. During days like these I am always glad to be working in my studio. My wall of yarn, various moodboards, watercolour paintings by ‘my man’, the artist Mark Gittins, and other colourful bits and pieces definitely keep me happy and cheerful when the world outside looks a bit gloomy.

After returning from Germany and catching up on household chores, I have spent most of my time in said colourful studio, working on various new ideas. A big chunk of time has been spent working on my Spring Shawl project and after a couple of unhappy starts and ripping back, it is now growing into something I am really happy with.

In the end I decided to let the beautiful Scheepjeswol Invicta Colour Yarn speak for itself and not distract from it by using an overly busy pattern. I am working in garter stitch throughout, just throwing in the odd row of Invicta Extra for added interest.

I am hoping to have the shawl finished by next week to be able to share the Ta-Dah moment with you.

I hope you will join me for that, until then…

Happy Knitting & Crocheting!
