I was really hoping to put this post up earlier today when the sun was higher in the sky for me to take better photos. As I cast off my shawl, I kept noticing the light becoming less and less. Today has been a day of driving, shopping, taking Erin to the chiropractor, then back home to fetch Caiden and Kye to go to a friend’s house and then back to fetch the girls to take them to see their friend’s matric farewell dress as she walked into her farewell, the dresses were amazing! Phew, I’m out of breath just thinking about my day but it was good. I did manage to finish my Oaklet Shawl, knitting a few rows here and there, whenever I got the chance. I was hoping to block it but I ran out of time and that will have to wait for tomorrow.
I have decided that this shawl is going to be a gift for a very special friend, I hope she likes it. Even though we have been having a postal strike here for the past 2 months or so, (can you believe that??) I actually received some parcels in the post yesterday!! Oh my, how wonderful, it was yarn, the best parcel to receive, no?! The skein on the left is from Hartlam, I won it in a competition and I love it! The skein on the right is a kit I ordered from Nurturing Fibres to knit this Dragons’ Hope Shawl designed by Sally Cameron. I can’t wait to start.
It’s late here now, I’m so happy to be home, all I want to do is have a long bath, read everyone a story and sit and knit and do nothing else for at least an hour.
