I do find it so hard to keep on sorting out stuff for this blog and my SLYA one, somehow doing this is always bottom of the priority list and then it never reaches the top. Anyway today I have managed to get some photos of my latest shrug using Lisa Daehlin's pattern
I used Rowan bamboo tape which I bought very cheaply a while ago. Infact I love the pattern and result so much that I have knitted three, two as presents and one for me
pattern After all this succes I spent last night knitting a different shrug by Lisa only to realise that I had made a mistake and had to undo loads and loads and it took ages to work out which row I should be doing. Grrrr.
Back on track now though for TV knitting, but must make meal first

Lots of my friends now have one and I have lots of different colourways
This hat is from a Kim Hargreaves pattern. Though mine is nowhere near at baggy as the pattern. Think my year was a lot thinner.
I also added a curly edge flower from a design by Belinda Harris Reid
I love the flowers and really enjoy knitting them, they take about an hour to knit (for me anyway) and I have then added a little bit of seaweed stitch to the centre of some of them.
Must try the hat again with thicker yarn
