The Beach Shawl

This was supposed to be another Christmas holidays project, but I ended up spending too much time sleeping and fishing and obviously not enough time knitting!  I’m using the Marin Pattern by Ysolda, and knitting it in Magic Light from Ice Yarns with 4.5mm needles.  I originally started this project in lovely Lorna’s Laces Shepard Worsted Multi, but I found the pattern a little confusing to start with and I had to frog a few times.  I then decided that I would learn the pattern using acrylic so I could then make another in the better yarn.  In saying that though, I’m really enjoying knitting in the magic light, and the colours are striping nicely.

If I push hard over the next week I should get this finished – I’m already planning my next project in Madeleine Tosh Merino Light that I may or may not have purchased yesterday….
