A New Project

The other day whilst walking back from school with my children I had this great idea for a new knitting project, now normally when I get an idea I make loads of sketches and then knit a mini sample to see if it will work, then choose yarn and knit more little samples and swatches. Well this time I got rather over excited and ordered the yarn as soon as I got home without even seeing if my idea will actually work.

So the yarn has arrived, this is cascade 220 fingering in shades ginger, brown and beige, I’ve never used this yarn before but the colours are perfect for what I have in mind. This yarn is hopefully going to be turned into a three colour shawl, I’ve started working on mini swatches and fingers crossed it will work out. This is what happens when I get over excited, I end up with a load more yarn!
