I do

Latest progress on the new improved "I do" shrug. Now I know that this bears a striking resemblance to the last picture I showed you of the work in progress BUT, (and this is a bigger but than my own) the last incarnation has been frogged and this is a wholly NEW version.

The original seemed to be too tight around my upper arm (truck drivers muscles I assure you. Flab? no way!) But I had hated casting on and starting off as the needles I was using were as blunt as an EXTREMELY blunt thing. So whilst at Woolfest I purchased some bamboo DPNs with nice pointy points and a bamboo circular (ditto) in the right size and I started again.

I'm much happier with the progress I'm making now, and the needles are terrific (Susannes's Bambus).

I've also finished another teeny tiny felted tote from the Kureyon I got at Coldspring Mill. I may give it as a prize to the Friends of Beaumont Park as they've sent a flyer round asking for stuff for their gala day at the end of the month. I live near to the park and it's rather lovely and The Friends raise money towards restoring it to it's former glory.

Well, I say I've finished it. Obviously I haven't put the button or the handle on yet!!!

It's looking good! I love the colour and the flared sleeves are lovely, might just have to look that pattern out.

Lovely teeny tiny tote. Fab colours. I felted my second one today.

The "I do" sleeve looks great. I really like that green. Love the colourway of the teeny tiny tote, too.

It looks fantastic - nice to see someone having more luck with lace than me at the moment!
