Just a quick progress report on Swedish Heartwarmer shawl.....slow to put it mildly, can only manage about 1 half/2 rows at a time...so many stitiches, by the end there will be about 800 by my reckoning....not saying it isn't fun to do, it is, but just very mind intensive, no sitting in front of TV...the strands on the 2nd picture is for the roses part...I am doing this intarsia, so was easier to cut 15 one metre lengths of yarn.Not sure of the colourway yet, the yellow is supposed to be gold but will see how it goes.

Hello...been a while but life has been hectic of late but anyway have managed to finish my lovely stole.....took a while but very pleased with her the Noro Silk Garden is a great yarn to knit with and learning the entrelac and doing backward knitting has been fun too. So she is 70" long x 19" wide...she is wrapped around my shoulders at the moment as weather is still a tad chilly here in UK. We actually had snow on the south coast last weekend, which for this area now is quite rare knowadays, unfortunately/or fortunately didn't stay for long . So now Lady Eleanor is finished...am doing a Kal for Swedish Heartwarmer shawl and also Rowan Iceland is on the back burner to do...have the yarn...woo hoo.
