The girl can't help it
A few more new starts!
Hot on the heels of the ice-creamy chevron scarf and the blue chevron scarf, we now have...
a browny one, and...
a mixed greys one.
Oh, and there's now also this:
I can't tell you how much better this looks in the flesh than it does on this flash-ruined photo. It's mostly different shades of sludge - blue sludge, red sludge, plain old grey sludge. And yes, it's going to be a shawl! I've never made a shawl before and, while loving to gaze at other people's gorgeous lacey creations, I'd never seriously wear one, so this is very much a sling-round-your-shoulders-without-feeling-pretentious kind of thing.
I haven't even photographed the dress I'm making as a shop sample but I will tell you the pattern is called Meredith, it's knit in the round and it's available for free at present on the Let's Knit website here. You can find more of designer Ruth Maddock's lovely creations on ravelry.
