It's been a wonderful week for creative stuff ... which I mentioned in passing yesterday in What's Hot & What's Not.
What I've mostly been working on is the Seaside Shawlette ... this has been knitting up really quickly despite having to unpick at least one row in four because I seem t be crap at counting stitches!
Doesn't it look strange ... all crinkly and weird?
At first I couldn't work out how it was ever going to look like a shawl, until I realised I'm knitting along the two tapering sides of a triangle ... if that makes sense.
This being the first time I've knitted lace, or a shawl for that matter, I have great hopes for the blocking process. I think it'll increase the size by two-thirds, and it will definitely smooth out all the crinkles and uneven tension.
In the end this has taken hardly any time at all ... and when I stretch out the pattern it looks so pretty.
