Finished... and lots more squares

My Colour Affection shawl is complete - loving the colours together

and the way the stripes work so nicely together on the front and the back.

Yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mill Luxury in 4 ply - the colours are Ghost, Mink and Brick.

As the yarn comes in very generous 200g balls I have enough left to make socks - just as soon as I decide which pattern to use I will be casting on.

The body parts all came together at NCB on Wednesday evening

In A Bot a great pattern by Jodie.
Ready for adventure in his new home.

I have cut a gazillion more squares for the scrap blocks I started last week - should keep me busy for a while .
Just hoping no more cutting is required.

My work contract expired Friday and my students are on holidays for the next couple of weeks so I am indulging in a break of my own this week. I am planning lots of creative activity - but I may just sleep the week away especially if the sun forgets to get up!

Have wonderful weekend and stay warm.
