A new knitting project
This morning my oldest dearest friend sent me a text asking if I was home..... Well to cut a long story short Margaret came over and we spent the whole day knitting and chatting and generally putting the world to right. We stopped for a bit of lunch and a delicious piece of caramel shortbread before continuing working alongside one another. Margaret and I have crafted together for nearly thirty years and she has been the rock that I leaned on more times than I care to remember. We used to craft together every week but work commitments and family gradually took over. Well, today we decided that we will make the time to spend a whole day crafting at least once each month. I wasn't sure what I fancied knitting and decided to knit a shawl but make up the pattern as I went along. I am using one of the lovely Mandala yarn cakes and I'm really pleased with how it looks so far.
