Good afternoon all.
I can't believe it's Thursday already, where has this week gone to??

Well I've finally finished knitting the shawl I started much earlier this year!! It was meant for my friend's birthday in May....I had to apologise and promised it would be ready for her holiday to Florida next month!! I can't say I've enjoyed knitting it, the needles were far too big - however since I bought loads of yarn to do scarves for Christmas I's better cast the next lot on and see if a scarf is any easier to knit!!

Close up of the yarn

All neatly parcelled in it's box with a scarf pin to go with it.

and a close up showing the detail on the front of the box.

I treated myself to a new camera this week a Fujifilm XF1, it's going to be a huge learning curve getting the best out of it but meanwhile it's set to point and shoot so I can't really go wrong!!

  1. Very pretty Carol, great job and hey, have fun learning the new camera..x

  2. This looks beautiful and your friend will love it! The box and scarf pin are gorgeous too. Knitting does take such a long time doesn't it? I learned to crochet before I learned to knit, and that grows so much faster so I must confess I do very little knitting these days. Christine xx

  3. WOW Carol this is beautiful, love the colour and I am sure your friend will absolutely love it and will keep it forever! Thank you for sharing.
