This super easy shawl was done for a workmate of my DH. I was told he wanted a gift for female 2 days before he needed it, so I had to come up with something quick. It is knitted in Aran weight wool blend, which makes it perfect, because I don't know if she'll want to hand wash or not.
The body of the shawl is knitted in st st on a 7mm needle and the border is knitted in a faggoting stitch, (thanks Sue for telling me what it was called). I steamed blocked it in order to get it to open up which worked a treat.
On other news I have been asked to knit some items for a charity sale at a local Old folks home but I am stomped because I Know with copyright laws you can't knit other peoples designs for sale so I will have to try to find patterns that I would allow me to do that suggestions are very welcome.
I will be off to hospital again on Tuesdays for hopefully my final operation, I really hope they get it all this time. I really hate hospitals. This one will be much worse than the last with a longer recovery period and more pain, and it doesn't help that I can't take pain killers, I pray it all goes well.
Off to bed for me, I a m totally Knackered I spend the day decorating the bathroom and putting down the floor and waiting for sealant to dry.
Have a great evening Bye..................
