I have also finally started on Pretty as a Peacock Shawl, this is my first lace shawl. English pattern and not the most easy on, so I wonder what I am thinking on and to be honost. I have already knitted wrong two times, I thought I was finish with chart B. Then I was missing 5 stictes and took up a lot of rows, then I started again. But when I check the pattern, I so that something was wrong and yes, oh dear. I had began on the wrong row, so I just had to take up all the rows and start again from row 46. But know I have control again
Wish me good knitting luck on my following journey 😛
Here is the Merino&Silk blend from Fiber fleece artist I bought from Garnkorga in Sweeden, the quality for that price is not worth it. The wool had felted a little bit so it was small neps in and therefore I am not satsfied over the quality. Here is the photo of the yarn.
Oh, I almost forgot to write about the most important news, I have got a new drop spindle. A Kundert Birdseye Maple, Wenge, Zebra on Walnut Whorl, I love it. Despite of the weight, it is 1 oz it don’t feel so heavy at all. It is in very good balance and spin forever, I have got a new spindle in my favorite collection.
