I so wish I could get back into knitting but at this point I think I must need the almost instant gratification that crochet brings me.
It is just so quick.
Here is the Sweet Pea Shawl from stitch n bitch book the happy hooker.
I love this pattern and once I had translated the stitches from US to UK it was fairly easy.
I only did 18 shells across the top though instead of 20 as it seems I cannot count to 203!!!
I started this Saturday morning and it was blocking Sunday afternoon.
It’s done in cotton in the book but as I am so awkward I did it in wool and then blocked it. It took 135g of this wool which was a charity shop buy on a cone so I have no idea of yardage. I still don’t know if to dye it or not.
The funny thing is that I don’t wear shawls or wraps but I cannot seem to stop making them. I love the delicate look of them but as I am over weight they just don’t look right on me.
Hopefully that will change this year when I can be bothered to get off my fat arse long enough to walk through the kitchen to the garage to use the gym.
