How was your weekend? I spent mine doing what I enjoy the most knitting. It was cold, too cold for gardening, so apart from a quick visit to catch up with some relations and a grocery shop on Saturday, and a brisk walk on Sunday the rest of the weekend was spent tucked up on the sofa in the garden room. Hubby supplied drinks and even cooked dinner on Saturday.
I achieved lots. Firstly I finished and blocked the Childry Shawl. I thought it would be a good idea to do a picot edge on the cast off. I must have been mad! Picot on 625 stitches, so that's cast on 2 cast of 5, took me about 1.5 hrs as I needed breaks for my aching wrists. I think the end result was worth it though.
I then worked on the Ten Stitch - once I have completed the last side in the pale blue mix it will measure 50" square, so I think one more round in a dark blue mix should just about do it.
Then as I had 80 grams of the King Cole Riot left from the shawl and a copy of the Baktus Scarf pattern handy I cast that on too. This will be an "as and when" project. I decided not to knit into the back of the yarn over, thus giving me a hole pattern down the edge. I have lots more of this yarn so will see how far I get with thew started ball. I love the colour of this yarn, I just wish it didn't split so much.
