Hi guys, I haven't posted in a while so I thought I would show you all what I've been up to. My friend, Camille's birthday had recently come up, and we're both really big Doctor Who fans. So when I saw the bigger on the inside shawl in the last issue of Knitty, I knew I had to make it for her. It is also my first handspun/handknit project.
I'm on a quest to learn the continental method. I've been using the English method all my life, and my old joints are protesting. I think that there will be less pain knitting without all the yarn throwing. It's still very awkward to use my left hand. I guess that it's just of matter of practice.
I made the Bella Botanica Shawl (by Karen Strauss - free download on Ravelry) for a friend of mine here in Morelia. I used Tosh Lace in the colourway "Tart" and 3.75 mm needles. Quick and easy. The top is 84 inches and the depth is 36 inches. It took about 750 yards.
