And so it begins...
I'd just like to say, before I get drawn into this project, I love these colours, I really do, (Haifoss on grey Shetland/silk by Freyalyn) which is just as well as I suspect I may be seeing rather a lot of them. But for now, this is the beginning of my Shetland Spencer Dress. 2 things had stopped me knitting it before. One was I can't find a pattern and the other, I didn't have the yarn. Well, I'm beginning to remedy the lack of yarn, and hopefully whilst I'm spinning it, I shall map out the beginnings of a pattern in my head.
Also, this week the current Shawl of Doom has been laid to rest. This is just a snippet, the entire thing will hopefully be modelled by the recipient and I shall get gorgeous pics, but in the meanwhile, here we are. I enjoyed the pattern, but it just ate yarn, something to be aware of if I every feel the need to knit it again.
This last couple of days have been finishing days. I also plied a couple of hanks of yarn.
