Knit Misty for Me

On Friday I stopped into John Lewis on the way home from work to buy something to store my shoes in and just happened (ha!) to wander into the yarn section.  I love the John Lewis yarn section - there is something reassuring to me about a department store that still stocks yarn. Most stopped by the end of the 80's but John Lewis and Liberty are hanging in there.

Anyway - I caught sight of the latest Kim Hargreaves pattern collection - Misty - and after a few seconds flipping through the pages I knew it was another winner.  I've made quite a few of Kim's patterns over the past couple of years as gifts - and each one has been really well received.  She has a great eye for detail and her designs are fresh enough that my 15 year old goddaughter loves them, but have enough style that my (slightly older than 15 years old) sister likes them as well.

I picked up a few skeins for Rowan Fine Milk Cotton and will be making one or the other of these for gorgeous goddaughter Genevieve's 16th birthday in July.  I'm leaning towards the first one.....




In Wedding Ring Shawl news I'm still knitting.
I still have a lot of knitting to do.
The end.


(I've just started the 5th repeat - so another 100ish rows and I'll be ready to start the wide border.)

The shawl is looking good. Kim Hargreaves patterns always look so good don't they, no wonder you want to knit them!

The shawl looks ace. Isn't it amazing how easy it is to accidentally buy yarn?
