Guys, this knitting pattern is awesome and then some. I love, love, love it. I began frightened. I knitted the first few rows in isolation in my hotel room, scared to have holiday makers jeer at me across the pool. ‘Look at her! She doesn’t know what she’s doing!’ But six rows in, I realised that this pattern is easy peasy lemon squeezy. And, boy, those colours really do pop in the Pop Spots Shawl.
Every time I create one of those rows of spots I want to elbow someone and point at my work. ‘Look what I just did!’ Sadly, my elbow would probably skid across their larded flesh and my knitting and I would dive bomb into the pool. I’m not sure chlorine is good for merino wool.
In other news, you’ll be glad to hear that the Greek authorities ordered all boat owners to re-paint their vessels to match my new sleeveless Mathilde. I expected nothing less.
