Another shot at making the perfect project from this wonderous yarn! :D Simple stockinette shawl with a few eyelet rows put in there for interest - the main focus is this amazing yarn by Bowerbirdknits :)

24 Aug - It’s HUGE!! blocked it out last night and it’s SO much bigger than I thought it would be! :D LUFF how the colours are earthy and rich, then POP with vibancy right at the edge - perfect!

23 Aug - Terrible photo, but it’s all I can do at the moment! Camera’s at home, phone camera’s busted, so this is it! Pre blocking - toast gives size comparison

22 August - Finished!! Cast off, ends sewn in, soaking in the sink waiting for blocking after work! Woot Woot!! :D After binding off I had literally ONE INCH of yarn left!

20 July
Back on the kntiting agenda as my basic easy stockinette project for staff meetings and dark bus rides - edging further and further along! :) Still very much in love with this.. ;D

2 July
Hibernating while I knit up some cowls etc for snow season - but kept close by for glorious stockinette action when required!

1 July
Bigger and bigger and bigger - the yarn keeps coming! Didn’t do a weigh in of the yarn before i started, but there is aroung 50g left, and I think so far I’ve used around 30g? Woah, so not even half way! It’ll be a good size then, not the small shawlette I had thought it would be!
