My latest finished project is the Begonia Swirl Shawl.The pattern is available free on Ravelry.The darker bit in the photograph is where it is doubled over.I used Geraint Lace Weight from Triskelion Yarn.It really is quite an easy pattern and is very effective when finished.It has only taken me a couple of weeks and I only knit in the evening.
Last weekwe went to see "LaLa Land " at the cinema.Have you seen it and what did you think.Tomorrow we are hoping to go and see "Lion"
What a beautiful shawl. My gosh, it's gorgeous. How proud you'll feel telling admirers you made that.ReplyDelete
That is a lovely shawl, I love the way it swirls round! I do have a fondness for shawl knitting as you know so may need to have a look at this one - thanks for sending inspiration my way xxReplyDelete
Beautiful. I'm amazed it only took two weeks.ReplyDelete
Oh wow, that is spectacular! You are a very skilled knitter and it must look wonderful on - enjoy wearing it.ReplyDelete
How beautiful your shawl is, so delicate and I love the colour. Haven't seen that film yet although everyone seems to be raving about it:)ReplyDelete
That is beautiful :)ReplyDelete
Lovely! Clever woman !ReplyDelete
That is beautiful - stunning in fact!ReplyDelete
The shawl is fantastic, absolutely stunning!ReplyDelete
The shawl looks lovely!ReplyDelete
Wow, that's beautiful, stunning. It looks very intricate. I haven't seen LaLa Land, I'm not sure what I think about it really, whether I fancy seeing it or not.ReplyDelete
Hello and thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. You are indeed very lucky to live in such a beautiful spot. But the best is, you appreciate it and that makes it even more special, I think.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your Golden Wedding Anniversary, that is indeed worthwhile a great celebration! We have been to Lanzarote once and it was our very first holiday together. Rather special with its black beaches, isn't it? Greetings from (still) Belgium.
That is an amazing shawl! It's hard to believe that it's easy.ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your 50th! It must be so amazing to see your family grow into the future like that. My kids are both in their 20s and nowhere near having kids, so I don't know if I'll ever know that feeling.
I though LaLa Land was mediocre. I've heard Lion is amazing!
It's lovely. The pattern I used for mine is Love in a Mist by Boo knits.ReplyDelete
Oh my, that is so beautiful Barbara; absolutely stunning!! I haven't gone to see La La Land but friends who did go didn't seem impressed. But we did go to see a recent release here in Australia called Hidden Figures which I absolutely loved.ReplyDelete
Lastly thank you for your lovely comments on my recent post.

This shawl is lovely, I like making shawls but nobody seems to wear them now, however beautiful they are, so I mainly stick to making socks!
I still have some laceweight yarn, however, so I might try making this one!
