Well we are certainly not having the high temperatures the rest of the country are enjoying. In fact, I am back to wearing a cardigan/jumper. Whilst the mainland is basking in sun and enjoying the temperatures of the Summer season it feels like Winter here.
I was able to finish the crochet aspect of a shawl last night. It was a joy to work on as it kept me warm. All that is needed for it to be finished, are three tassels to be made for the points and blocked. I love the simplicity of the pattern and the neutral colours means it will go with anything.
The pattern describes it 'as just the right size for bundling up in and works with the seasons, morphing from clement-weather cardigan to Narnia-winter thick scarf '.
The shawl is made in one piece from the top down, worked in rows to form a triangle. Its almost cold enough to wear it now.
The stitches need to be opened and a better drape will be achieved when it has been blocked but I am very pleased with the outcome of this make. A start has already been made on another one.
As I am typing this I have glanced up out of the window and once again it is raining. I am hoping it will pass over very quickly. We had planned to take a picnic lunch out with us today. Gerard has a hospital appointment with a Consultant and we had hoped for another little tour. A car picnic will be just as much fun, I love watching the sea whatever the weather.
As always I thank you for your visit here to this blog and for your uplifting comments. Have you any plans for today?
See you soon.
