The Girl On Fire

I’m on fire!  The beach shawl is finally finished, after a big push over the last couple of days to get it done (so I can move on to a NEW PROJECT! shhh).  I’m really happy with it; I love how the colour has worked out.  I’ll block it over the weekend and hopefully will stretch it to a larger size – at the moment it’s large enough to drape over my shoulders but I’d need a pin to keep it around me.  I’ve now started the Cedar Leaf Shawlette, which looks absolutely gorgeous and seems to be a rather quick knit.  I got a call from my local yarn store yesterday to tell me that my second skein of Lorna’s Laces Shepard Worsted Multi in the Baltic Sea colourway has arrived and is awaiting my purchase, so that is what I’m using for this shawlette.  It’s an amazing forest colour – greens and browns reminiscent of a forest floor.  Perfect for this leafy shawl!  It’s beautiful to knit with too, silky and smooth and it glides across the needles like a dream.
