I am pleased to say that I finally finished knitting my Soumak Shawl shortly before Christmas.
I then made the most of watching The Crown on Netflix (a fabulous production, by the way) to help pass the time while I sewed in the seemingly endless ends…
All of a sudden, it was finished, and I now have the most gorgeous, squishy, colourful wrap – perfect timing as the weather starts to get colder.
And in bonus news, while I was sorting out my yarn stash, I found this sad little waif and stray…
I finished this project so long ago that I can’t even remember knitting it. I think I must have put it away at the time because I did not then have the means to block it. But I do now! You can see how large the shawl stretches by reference to the books on the small bookcase.
Here is the finished shawl in all its glory. Knitted in Rowan’s Kid Silk Haze, it is beautifully light and airy, whil also providing cosy warmth.
Knitting is such a joy for me – I love the process as much as the finished items. I am looking forward to many more knitting hours in 2017. 🙂
