I’ve started a version of Shaelyn – gold stocking stitch with various lemon yellows for the lace parts. Then I added a longer lace insert, knitted several more pattern repeats and cast off. Two weeks later, I realised that the reason I hadn’t blocked the shawl was because I didn’t like the longer lace repeat. Off to the frog pond!

I’m knitting an Ulmus shawl in yellow / gold and a variegated blue / green / red / gold sock yarn with the striped, slip stitch garter beginning and a wavy lace outer section in the darker variegated yarn. All in 4ply from my stash and very satisfying. Picis soon.
My still-husband’s now girlfriend is on the very point of selling her house, so she can buy me out of mine, which I still own with my still-husband, so this means he won’t have to move (bless!) and I can look for somewhere to buy myself as soon as the divorce comes through, looking like beginning of October. I can’t believe how amicable this has all been barring the first few weeks of shock, so I am profoundly grateful. I think the whole process, though, however ‘easy’ in comparison with others’, may be fuelling some of my extensive yarn buying. Just a hunch.
Oh and it’s every bit as amazing as it promised. Coral coloured fine kid mohair to die for. Yellows jostling like daffodils and narcissi from a mixed bag o’ bulbs, pleading to be whipped up into a sunshine blanket. I’ll try to get some photos with the new camera. In the meantime I knit on with my red sock and my Vivian Hoxbro modular wrap.
