Holiday knitting

The morning we set off, I'd woken up early to see Himself off to work and in the silence of the house before waking the boys, I cast on a shawl for myself.  Sachiko Uemura's Spring Kerchief  (Ravelry), I loved the spring colours but seeing it is autumn and I wanted something in a rich warm colour I chose Rico Superba Poem in warming russets, purples and deep blues.

Usually when I am on holiday I am a passenger and the in-car entertainment is plenty of quality knitting time, but this time, as the driver my knitting was restricted to evenings only.

Strangely enough I didn't take any 'in progress' photos with my camera and the only one I did take was with my camera phone (which for some inexplicable reason is not speaking to my laptop so I am unable to down load it).

It is lovely and squadgy, warm and soft . Now that I am back to work, I only have my lunch hour to knit a row or two, my evenings have reverted back to study - progress has slowed down.
Knitting in the slow lane


  1. What lovely colours. It looks warm and snuggly.

  2. Just had a look at the pattern you are using and I approve! It will be lovely when you finish it. Can't wait to see it.

  3. I love your bright sunny colours Hawthorn, it's going to be a lovely shawl. I hope your camera phone decides to start communicating with your laptop again, soon! Hugs, Joy x
