We had a power cut in the middle of the afternoon, ( just when I wanted to turn the heat up again, and was longing for a cup of tea), but it gave me some respite and a chance to snatch a few rows of knitting.
Talking of which, I finished this shawl the other day.
This was my knitting project for the car, I started it last year when we drove up to the North Island in March.
I found the pattern on Ravelry. It is just a simple increase each end, and in the middle alternate rows, I have used two balls of Noro Sock yarn, alternating them with garter stitch and stocking stitch.
We have lots of family staying with us at the moment and Kristin (our daughter in law) kindly modeled it for me.
We have a wedding to attend on Saturday and then we are heading off to the Sounds for a week with all the grandchildren. It will be a blog free week because we don't have access down there, so this will be the last post until the middle of January.
Thank you all for your comments and friendship and I shall see you again very soon !
