|The lumpy bit on the closest side is the sleeve; that's now partially pinned in place.|
I've also got a new steam station to try out, Spotlight had a deal on a Semco one and considering I dont' much like my current iron I figured it was worth a go. It's all set up and I'll try it out on the ironing today.
In knitting news I've finished the shawl I was working on, took me 14 days total and I love it! Downside is it's taking up the studio floor so I can't get to the ironing board to test that new iron till it's dry.
|The pattern is the Drop Leaf Shawlette by Tamara Ell and I've called mine Dragon on a Leaf as the colourway is called Dragon's Breath.|
|First bobbin of 4 done, am about 1/3 of the way through the second and hope to finish that next weekend.|
Speaking of spinning and knitting, if anyone reading my blog is in Christchurch and is interested in joining a group of very friendly knitters, spinners, crocheters and weavers do come along to our guild meetings. We meet at 11 Tanner St on Monday and Saturday from 10am till 2pm and would love to have some new members. Our fees are (in my opinion) very reasonable and you gain access to an excellent library and a lot of experience!
