Shawls and the suchlike

So as not to disappoint my friend Patty I have, as is my custom, been knocking up things for Christmas as temps soar to near 100. A wonderful way of using up those georgeous skiens friends have sent me.

Beginning with a hat made of Koigu fingering that Nancy sent me. It is actually a slouchy streetwise model, not clear in the picture

Swiss Cheese scarf in a ball of Zauberball laceweight. Shading from ornage to fuchsia to purple and back again. A rare sight: Lin in a handknit. Fascinating knitting

After recieving a pimpelleise shawl in a swap from Ceri I caught the bug and have made no less than 4 (with more to come) . Great car knitting and use just one skein of sock wool

Here we have legendary malabrigo merino sock wool bought in Barcellona. Another again from Nancy and a denim Zauberball.

Its no use, I feel the urge coming on, got to go and knit another one....

I'm glad you have updated your blog. I was looking forward to seeing your latest works. I particularly like Linda's shawl, It reminds me of Halloween. Bye S.
