It's been a while since I've worked on my Summer Flies shawl by Hollie and Ella Knits, I've been concentrating on knitting baby items for the last few months, but now he is here and he's got plenty to get him through his first few months hence why I'm back to the shawl.
It is a pretty, lacy shawl and is such a lovely pattern to work on, it is worked in 7 different sections so you don't get bored.
Surprisingly, it is a fairly quick knit, I'd just started section 6, the last time I'd worked on it, in the last couple of evenings, I've finished section 6 and 7 and have just started casting off.
Talking about this group, when I was blog hopping through my regular knitting blogs, I was reading Sarah's blog, Crafts from the Cwtch, and she had recommended a video podcast called Must Stash Podcast. I love watching/listening to knitting podcasts and always on the lookout for new ones.
I highly recommend this one, they are two friends named Steph and Stacie who are so much fun but also very informative. It's a fairly new podcast, with only 10 episodes to catch up on, which I did in two evenings.
They are so funny and made me chuckle a few times as well as learning something new, it was like having a couple of friends around the house, all I needed is a glass of wine and your knitting, you must check them out, even if you are a crocheter, you will love all the pretty yarn they show you.
When, I've finished this shawl, I 'd like to start another one, I have lots of 4ply/fingering weight yarn in my stash which I want to use. I want something to just throw over my shoulders in the summer, nothing too lacy, maybe more a pashmina style. If anybody have any suggestions, I would really appreciate it.
