The weather has been amazing so I have been helping mum sort out the garden. We have moved her Agapanthus to a new been and bought 3 roses which she needs to plant. We have also started a herb container, I now need to split the mint and put it in new pots and give my brother some.
Ok what have I been up to with my knitting.
Well, firstly some photos to post.
First is a shawl I have knitted for sale. It is made of Tencel and Rayon. Did you know Tencel is wood pulp? It is hard to believe, but I like it as a yarn. It has a silky feel. This is 4ply yarn so quite thick but I am not sure how warm it would be.
I had enough yarn left over to make a shawlette, very simple to knit and perfect to do while watching the TV.

This is Joshua's finished Entrelac Scarf. I am pleased with how it turned out.

The next thing I would like to try is a Entrelac shawl. I have seen several ideas on Ravelry, but that will have to wait as I have to start my circular shawl to wear to Kayte's wedding.
I wanted it to be made out of 100% Tencel and after a long hard search I have found some. Just Our Yarn. It is described as "Indigo, navy, loden and kilt green"
I gave Julia her shawl at the weekend and she was very pleased with it, which I am glad.
Hope everybody has had a good Easter holiday.
