My friend really loved the Miss Winkle Shawlette that I made in the spring. So it's no wonder that with her birthday approaching I used is as a great excuse to order some yummy yarn from Gemini Knits and cast on another Miss Winkle!
Dark Melody, a Merino hand painted sock yarn that I knew would be soft and beautifully dyed, just like the daffodil yarn I have for my shawl.
It really is an easy knit, that once you get in the rhythm of the pattern it is an easy project to pick ups and put down.
This shawl has been on late night child collections, kickboxing and to swimming lessons and I know it won't be the last one I make. This time I managed to get 39 Loops from the skein, one more than last time.
I gave it to my friend last week and she was thrilled (I bloody hope she was or she's a good actor!!) and she said she was wanting one of them after seeing my shawl. but didn't want to ask me to make her one…………..doesn't she know I need all the excuses I can get, to buy yarn/fabric and start new projects!!!!!!
