Another 2.5mm 30cm addi turbo for my sock knitting. Enough clover soft touch crochet hooks to complete my set and finally some cute rabbit buttons (it looks like miffy playing tennis). So much for not buying anything - Bryony encouraged me.
The train journey down to bristol yielded this Rainy Day sock from Magknits in Sweet Georgia Speed Demon..... It truely is speedy!
And a lazy Sunday afternoon resulted in a finished shawl - with nearly a week to spare before the party.
Pattern: Holiday shawl from RYC Holiday Booklet
Yarn: 4 ply soft in Wink
Started: 22nd April 2007
Finished: 13th May 2007
Comments: I did one less row than the pattern called for, it would have been huge if I did them all. The 4 ply went a long way, I think I used 5 balls out of the 10 I bought including the fringe, which means it cost me £10 to make. Bargain. I have added little gold bells to the edging too, Tony says it sounds like there is a cat in the room! Was really fun to make and easy to memorise. I think I might have to gift it to my mom to wear when she goes on her next cruise after this weekend.
