Knitting in literature... well... in Discworld at least.

I have been rereading Terry Pratchett's Discworld series for a little light

loud. I am talking an honest laugh, not a chuckle or even a snicker.

I'm back!

I've been missing for a great while due to health issues. But I'm Baaack! After many long years I finally have a diagnosis and drugs that work!

Then come back for around 10 days only to go absent for another 3-6 days.

A Finished Project and a Question :)

I finished the Prayer Shawl knitted in Indian Cross-Stitch http://newstitchaday.com/how-to-knit-the-indian-cross-stitch/ so here are a couple of pictures I took with my cell phone so you can see how it looks. I think I'm going to make another one in rainbow stripes that will really show off the pattern and the waves.
