Just a flying visit from me today as I'm off to see the Olympic Torch make its way around Hilly Town today with two very excited little people and I need to get some jobs done first.
I had no intention of making a shawl this week, it just sort of happened. I had a ball of sock wool and a pattern and the two came together one evening. I find shawls very comforting to make, though not of much use generally, so I tend to make them when I need a small, quick, reassuring something to work on.
I can't tell you how lovely it is to be able to take objects outside and photograph them. The sunshine is really cheering me up this week. The pattern is Flying Diamonds and it is available for a bargain price on Ravelry. It is extremely easy to make and after the first three repeats I have hardly had to refer to the pattern or diagram at all...
It also fits well in the new small project bag I showed you in my last post so that pleases my tidy little mind.
I'm sure there are lots of lovely projects to be seen this week at Tami's Ami's, I can't wait to have a look this evening.
