Thought I'd just write quickly about the shawl I knitted for my mum for her birthday in April. It's Ishbel from Ysolda Teague and it's awesome. She's a great designer. I knitted the larger size and it took me about 2 weeks - I knit fast when working to a deadline, it would seem! I used a tweedy Rowan number, not the softest or drapiest choice with 100% wool but the colour reminded me of Monet so it was perfect for my mum. Success!

I went away, I worked a new job, I started a Masters degree, I got sick, but no, I didn't stop knitting! My Owls made mega process and are an inch and a hair away from being done. Apologies for the pyjamas, I've been off work sick for a bit.
I currently have a bunch of other stuff on the needles - a cardigan, another sweater, a blanket and some weird toy concoction for my niece's birthday. It's all going on. Right now I'm hopped up on sudafed sleeping tablets and bioshock - did you know Armin Shimerman does the voice of Andrew Ryan? Awesome. Enjoy the picture and my bathroom. you shall see more soon
