A warm welcome to you all, especially to my latest followers!
I promised you more news! So here is another post, make yourselves comfortable and enjoy reading this!
On Monday I finished my colourful South Bay Shawlette. I think it measures approx 210cm across and is over 1m long! The last few rows were getting longer and longer, with about 700 stitches in a row! I used over 8 balls x 100 g Fenna yarn!
Here are some photos of my finished Shawl, I am very pleased with it!!!

I hope you liked these pictures, I wanted to show off the magnificent colours from all angles! I loved looking at it against the sunlight, it brings out the pattern really well!
A Sunday Walk
On Sunday we drove to a public recreation domain called Hofstade. Just before we arrived, it started to rain! Luckily it stopped just as quickly and the sun came out a little bit later.
Here is a map for Hofstade, you can clearly see the 2 large lakes, one for sports and one for fishing.

After finishing both the Shells Cowl and the large Shawl one after the other, I was feeling a bit at a loss as which project to tackle next!
Well, I still have WIPs: my Harlequin Blanket - on which I will mostly work at home, as it is getting larger and larger! I also have the black Alpaca Shawl to knit.
Meanwhile I cast on stitches and started on the rib of a knitted Hat for a change! You can see it below, together with a little Flower Brooch I made yesterday with some of the Fenna yarn from the Shawl.
