Elfriede Shawl from the latest issue of Laine magazine.
I have two other sweater marked down to make from this issue alone, but whilst I was waiting for my yarn to arrive I cast (casted?) on for this shawl and … well the rest is history.
Yes, yarn from the stash, from the stash. From the staaaaaash…
From the stash. (Although the downside is that I was a little short of yarn and so the big border at the bottom – which I loved in the pattern photo – has turned out about half the size.
It’s a huge shawl shaped like an asymmetrical triangle, and knitted in the softest Malabrigo worsted yarn, it’s like having a fluffy blanket on your shoulders. 4 Skein. 5mm needles.
The eyelet pattern is lovely… just don’t look too closely… ahem…
Am I the only one that likes to wear the shawls ‘bib-style’?
On a totally different note, have you seen ‘Bruce Springsteen on Broadway’ on Netflix?
What do you mean no? Just do it. I mean it.
Bruce, I love you.
Also, I was going to bake brownies today and I didn’t.
