Way back at the end of May I shared some photos of a shawl in the making, Antarktis by Janina Kallio, a (paid for) pattern on Ravelry. I'm afraid I didn't pick it up again after that photo, and when I did I just wasn't happy with the yarn, I thought it might end up a bit scratchy for a shawl, so I ripped it back and started again with this lovely Ginger Twist yarn I bought when I was in Edinburgh earlier in the year.
Once I started it turned out to be quite a quick knit
And although it is probably a tad smaller than the pattern says it should be, I'm quite happy with it :-)
Here is a closer look at the eyelet pattern, which looks way more complicated than it actually was.
I have been stitching away on Elizabeth too but haven't taken any progress photos, I really am very close to a finish on her though.
Autumn came like the flick of a switch on Thursday, I have bought some plants for my kitchen window baskets and was going to put them in after work today but weather is telling me to wait, perhaps tomorrow it will be dry enough for me to do it.
My little 99p miniature rose didn't get the message that Autumn had arrived though and is having it's second flush of flowers :-)
I've never managed to keep one of these going before, certainly not one that flowered twice!
Does anyone know if I can plant this in the garden next year, perhaps in a container if not the ground?
That's all for now, see, I can do short posts sometimes :-)
Until next time
