R.I.P - Spring Things

I got to the end of the 13 repeats and it wasn't very big and I'd 80 out of 100g of yarn left and I really couldn't face doing anymore repeats of the body pattern... so I frogged it and re-wound the yarn and put it away for another day.... and feel much happier...

I wanted the shawl to be a decent size and it wasn't showing any sign of being that at the end of the stated 13 repeats and seeing those 1st 13 repeats were hard work, I decided I couldn't face doing anymore, it even put me off doing the edging.....

I have finished my 'Splash' socks which are for Paul aka DH and this was my first successful hand spun sock yarn last year :o) The fibre was from The Yarn Yard (see my sidebar) and is my favourite fibre from Natalie BFL Superwash being the ever practical gal I am...


He must be pleased they're on his feet today:o) I'm also pleased in the fact they were my first toe-up pair too.. a definite necessity for hand spun to ensure there's enough yarn to do the feet ;o) I have to say they remind me of the Trekking Ombre range....
I will hopefully show you more of the 'green square' from a previous post next week and also my Shetland Triangle by Evelyn Clark I cast on last night in Rowanspun DK.....

Life is too short to knit something boring. You'll find another project to compensate, I am sure! Pretty socks!

Eeeeek! More Spring doom!! I may be following you down that path soon but I'm not quite ready yet.

No wonder DH is chuffed with his socks. They're fab! And sorry to hear of the frustration with the shawl project. There always seems to be one project that just gets to us, isn't there?
