Forest Canopy Shawl.

Well I did say I wouldn't get in to the habit of having two projects on the go but I could not resist!
I won some Opal Herbstmelodie on ebay, lovely colours, hand painted, autumn colours, thought yes I like that, £4.99, jobs a goodun, no one else bid!
Any way, it dropped thru my letter box the day after and I took one look at it, and thought, thats a Forest Canopy Shawl. It just looked perfect and suited to a project like this and after a quick check I was ok to use a 4ply wool, I printed off my pattern and got started.

I've had to frog it all once after I realised I'd made an early mistake on my centre line and it had gone all wonky, and I've had to re done some lines several times to get the right number of stitches but I'm proud of my little effort so far!
Going to be a bit of a challenge and I've got to remember to carry on my sockapalooza socks as well (on to the gusset with them at the mo!) but I'm enjoying the test of my new knitting skills!
Watch this space for updates! Off to knit in a life line......


  1. I can see why you picked the FCS for the yarn it is georgeous and rich. It will make a faubulous shawl :)

  2. Ooh... lovely colours! Look forward to seeing your progress.

    Your starting the FC shawl has nudged me into picking up my Creatures again. It kind of got pushed to one side because of my obsession with socks. I need more hours in the day!

  3. Tag! If you fancy taking part in a meme, pop over to my blog for the details. If you don't fancy it, that's okay too. :)

    How's this FC coming along, anyway?
