I've been eyeing up this gorgeous shawl pattern that so many people have made recently for ages, and I've finally started my own.
I'm really enjoying it - it's just garter stitch, so no complicated stitches, but it's the first time I've done stripes in knitting, and it's soooo exciting seeing the stripes grow. I know non-knitters would find that a bit sad of me, but there we go. To me, it's exciting. That's just who I am. I just want to keep doing more!
I've still not decided on the third colour though. Should I go safe:
Nice peaceful colours, will go with lots of things, lovely and restful, and one of my favourite looks.
Or should I go for a richer, warmer look:
Not so safe, but more exciting. I love them both to be honest, so I can't go wrong. And I've still got a fair few stripes to do before I have to decide. Any thoughts, anyone?
And I'm just in the middle of making Chelsea buns, at the suggestion of Sue Webb. The thing I love about yeast baking is seeing it grow! And of course the lovely smell...
