Well, I may not have blogged much about knitting recently, but that certainly doesn’t mean that knitting hasn’t been happening! We finally got new mobile phones last week, so a couple of new phone cosys had to be knitted, I knit another moebius cowl, a pair of fingerless mitts for my Dad, and I also knitted not one, not two, but three Milos! Here’s a sneak peak of the yarn that I used – but you’ll have to wait until Friday to see the completed articles.
So, what’s on the needles just now? M loved the Milos that I knitted, and has requested one for her. The sizing doesn’t go up to her size, so I’m having to wing things a little. I’m knitting it in this lovely Sublime Egyptian Cotton, in Peony (her choice).
And finally, I’ve decided to try my first KAL (Knit Along), with Ysolda’s Follow Your Arrow shawl. Remember those Choose Your Own Adventure books from when you were a kid? Well, this is like a knitted version of that! Every week a new clue is released, and there’s a choice of clues – apparently there are 32 different shawls possible. For fear of spoilers, I can’t post photos here, but here’s the yarn I’m using – Eden Cottage Yarns Titus 4 ply, in Misty Woods. This photo doesn’t do justice to the colour. For those of you who are interested, I’ve chosen Clue 1A so far, which certainly begins with an unusual construction for the start of a shawl! Fun though 🙂 . Are you doing the KAL? Please let me know in the comments section!
