Tangled delight

Still knitting the Colour Affection shawl and enjoying the shape it is taking - I am up to the final section changing colours every two rows is leaving my yarn tangled.



I am enjoying knitting the short rows and the effect this creates but it is quite obvious that my cable is not long enough so this is the best picture I can get.

(How come I have every other size needle in extra long)


I am enjoying these colours together and the simplicity of this project which makes it very easy to pick up and put down.


The yarns are all Bendigo Woollen Mills 4 ply luxury - colours Ghost, Brick and Mink.
A delight to knit and at this tension make for a light and warm fabric.

Still reading State of the Union by Douglas Kennedy. There have been some interesting twists and turns in this story making it very entertaining.

The weather is perfect for knitting and reading under the snuggly rug.

Joining Ginny and all the others Yarning Along.

You Colour Affection is just beautiful and I too love those colors together. Isn't it the way to always have every needle but the one you need? It happens here all the time.:)
Have a great yarn along day.
