two kinds of wool
There were a couple of days last week that felt prematurely autumnal, so I briefly turned my attention from papercraft to woolcraft. I made some striped grey and aubergine felt to turn into a blanket-stitched pouch for a friend's birthday, and I finally completed a baktus shawl that I began well over six months ago as a prezzie for another friend after she had her second baby. For novice knitters like me the pattern is really easy to follow and the long, lacy triangle of knitting that you end up with can be styled in a number of ways. The baktus shawl is a lovely winter accessory and makes a nice change from the conventional knitted scarf. Thanks to Lies at Anemone for the above link and for her valuable advice on fixing wonky knitting!
