Jill's Wings

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..................


  1. The shawl is beautiful! You are a true friend to knit it in just two days.

    Good luck with the operation. I'll have to go back in your posts to figure out what is going on. I'll keep you in my prayers for results that you want and a speedy recovery.

  2. Frosty-In two days-you knit that in two days?? I am beyond impressed. It is beautiful. Good luck this week. S.
