The combination of delightful yarn and relaxing pattern made this shawl a quick knit (or maybe I just become obsessed making stitches with all those pretty colours).
While some of the last rows felt like they took forever, they ate the yarn and it was all done rather quickly.
I used the pretty natural shade for the edging and love the contrast in both colour and texture.

New socks for the Mother for Christmas (and not even December yet).
With a lovely lace design on the legs and
a pretty cable on the heel.
The yarn is Bendigo Woollen Mills Athena which is a gorgeous silk/wool mix and has the most luxuriant feel. The pattern is a lovely design by Qianer - Corn Mint Leaves socks.
After looking at the tunic I made earlier this year and figuring there was no easy fix for it I undid it and will repurpose the yarn into something that fits. I'm hoping to cast this one on this weekend if I manage to get one more thing finished today!

It hasn't only been about the yarn but I don't have any evidence of the sewing stitches, I will remember to take photo's while the sun is out soon.
Wishing you sunshine in your craft space.
