Shrugs and Bugs

001My shrug is going surprisingly well, no major mess-ups so far, here’s a mini picture, I attempted a larger picture, but its looking rather scrumpled up at the moment. As you can see I am continuing my love affair with garter stitch, tonight I will be casting off the short sleeves and hopefully I will have it finished by the end of the week.

This past week has been more about trying to clear the jungle that is my back garden than about knitting so instead of more knitting pictures here are a couple of photos of a huge stag beetle that we discovered whilst clearing weeds. I love these bugs, they are really quite large and absolutely beautiful in their own way.

To finish on a knitting note my Meandros shawl pattern will be available to download this weekend and Heartfelt the weekend after.
