Thanks to all the people who commented on my recent shawl make – and to those of you who suggested other shawls to knit. I’ve plumped (I think!) for the Cabernet Sauvignon (ha!), as nominated by A Little Of What You Fancy. Thanks, friend! This shawl looks eminently wearable and easy to knit in front of the telly.
So, off I went to buy some DK wool. I’ve gone for turquoise, although I really had to frogmarch myself to the counter. I love it but it slightly terrifies me, and I still can’t work out why. Do any of you have an insight? Why can I happily sew and wear a screaming red dress, but feel the fear of a turquoise knitted shawl? What’s your greatest crafting fear?
In other news, I’m featured in February’s Sewing World magazine! Much less scary.
