Fiddlesticks!

Don't you just love that word? This is not a random thought. I bought some Fiddlesticks Zephyr Wool silk lace weight yarn from Stash yarns a long while ago. It's been saved for a special occasion. Such an occasion has presented itself and I have cast on for the Print 'O the Waves shawl. I have a lover hate relationship with shawls and stoles. Love the look and feel of them but hate getting started on them. I tend to cast on then leave the work for months.

I started this shawl in August and left it in the corner. Now time is running out, I must finish it - as you can see, I've done lots and lots in 2 months......





To mix things up a bit I've started this cabled coat. I started on one of the fronts first to familiarise myself with the pattern. It is not that hard, but there is a long way to go.

I knew it! Projects other than the blanket are calling to you! They all look wonderful.
