I finished knitting my Betwixmas shawl a couple of weeks ago, to be honest I made myself finish it because I wanted to start something else, and that's going to be my 'thing' this year.
I didn't much like knitting with the yarn but I thought I'd like it when it was all done.
I washed and blocked it
The pattern came out good
But, it's not wearable, it is so small, I was really disappointed. I posted it on the fb group and a lot o people commented that yes, theirs had turned out small too. I know I could have ordered more yarn and carried on but I didn't eel inclined, I could have used bigger needles, but the stitches wouldn't have looked very nice. Joanne has taken it back with her, no idea if she will be able to use it, I'll told her to put it in the charity bag if she can't.
I'll be triple checking measurements the next time I do anything!
I've been working a little bit on Autumn Dream over the last three weekends, still a lot o brown at the moment but once I start adding the colour it will look much better.
The rain continues here. The Midlands has had a lot of flooding in places, especially Bewdley and Ironbridge There are flood defences in Bewdley now on one side of the river at least, so not as bad as previous years. It must be terrible when it happens all the same.
We have our own mini flood happening in the garden. This has been the same for weeks and hardly has time to soak away before the next few days of rain.
No chance of getting out and doing anything at the moment, everywhere you tread is like a bog!
I booked a day's holiday today so i'm having an indulgent day to myself :-) I'm going to make myself a lovely cuppa and binge watch series one of Last Tango in Halifax. I've watched them all previously but I wanted to refresh my memory before watching the new series, (no spoilers on the new series please as I will get this on catch up) :-)
Hope you all have a great week and have something other than rain to look at though your window.
See you soon
