This has to be, hands-down, one of my favourite designs ever. I loved working with the Blacker Swan over-dyed Falklands Merino DK in the sample and the colours (while not to everyone’s taste, I will admit) are totally “me”.

This side-to-side shawl/scarf features lace, cables, garter stitch, and intarsia.

The shaping for the shawl is done within the garter stitch section.

The lace and the cables are all fully charted.

The ends of the shawl are shaped, with the cables growing gracefully out of and into the points.

This pattern features in the revamped Knit Now issue 45, available in selected UK newsagents and supermarkets or online (internationally) in paper or digital format from More Mags.

Still plodding along on the Duotone Cowl… It seems like I switched from the first half pattern to the second half pattern too soon. I’ve still got quite a lot of yarn left and I’ve nearly matched the length of the first half. I’ll see how long the cowl is at the point where the halves match. If it’s the right length, I’ll finish it. If not, I’ll carry on with the second half patterning until I’ve nearly run out of yarn, then switch to the first half pattern again.
Confused? You should be!

My UFO for this week (the Shetland Stole) takes a fair amount of concentration, so I’ve only been working on it for anĀ  hour or so a day.

The good thing about a colour change yarn is you really can see any progress that’s been made!
I’m going to keep going on this for at least another week, since I’ve now got back into the rhythm of the pattern.

A cricket jumper tea cosy! It’s a p/hop pattern so I’ll be making a donation to MSF (DWB for those of you in the USA) based on the hours of pleasure (hop) I gain from the object.

EDIT: found the link for the teapot jumper!
