A Quick Update

A while ago you may remember that I had a dilemma with some knitting that I was doing. I had made a mistake which in order to correct meant ripping back about half of the work I had already done. Many of you gave me your opinion on this and, after much procrastinating I decided to rip it back. In the event it only took me just over one evening to re-knit the rip back. It was so worth it as I now know that there is no mistake on the piece.

This is it - a shrug called Angel wings.

I really love it. It is warm, fits over most things and looks amazing (even if I do say so myself!). The pattern is in the current issue of Yarnwise magazine and more info can be found here.

It is a quick knit with enough pattern to make it interesting without being too difficult. I recommend it.

Giveaway:

I won a giveaway this week (YAY). A huge thanks to Joanne Scrace (Notsogranny) and Artesano. It was to celebrate the release of Artesano silk blend book 2. Joanne has two projects published in this book and was giving away the book and the yarn to knit one of the patterns. To enter I had to decide which project I would knit and which colour way I would use. That was really easy for me – the Triogona pattern (by Joanne naturally) in the colour that she knit it in for the pictures. For those of you not able to follow the link here is the yarn:

You know a yarn is posh when it comes in hanks, not balls!

It is a colour made for me being a very fair coloured person. I think that I am going to have great fun knitting this over the holidays. The yarn feels absolutely divine. I am such a lucky, lucky girl 🙂 (sighing with pleasure!) It just shows that it is worth entering the giveaways on blogs as you never know if you may win. 🙂
