IT MUST BE WINTER ...



The knitting needles are out, so it must be winter. Quite chilly in the evenings now, and a warm shawl across my knees whilst I click away will be good. Only two evenings of knitting so far, so not enough of it to reach my knee yet.

The idea for this one came from the Thrift Store Stash Queen article about Ashley Martineau's method of recycling yarn. I have a stash of yarn from way back, which I'm mixing with a load more from a friend who had a clear out .... thanks Barb! The rest in true Thrift Store Stash Queen tradition has come from knitted garments picked up for very little money at Violets secondhand clothes shop in Limassol. I must be such a sad creature, I actually enjoy the unravelling almost as much as the knitting! Possibly because, unlike most unpicking, there is no mistake to be rectified, so no stress.

Strangely enough, I've just printed out the same article from the Interweave site! I haven't started knitting it yet, still doing stashbusting scarves. Cold, wet and grey here - you'd hate it.. J x
