I've been itching to cast on with the gorgeous wool Grace bought me for Christmas.
I'm going to knit a shawlette. The pattern I'm using is called Le Weekend (apparently the designer made it in one weekend!).
I've cast on the 355 stitches! And I'm making excellent progress on the lace pattern.
From now on it's plain stocking stitch, worked in short rows to create the crescent shape - so hopefully I'll get a bit of speed up.
Look at the jolly colours in the wool. The rapid colour changes make it great fun to knit with.
It will be a lovely splash of colour to wear on the grey Wintery days before the Spring arrives.
