I have spent my precious morning time elsewhere today – not much of it is now left.

The weather has turned ghastly, after a lovely Indian summer.

My attached i-cord is about to go around the second corner. More breakages. I have begun to wonder if the damage was caused not by Drummond Place m*ths but by Lerwick ones. Black is one of the colours for which two balls were supplied. I don't remember when I joined this one in, but it seems at least possible that it was faulty to begin with. On the other hand, I've had the kit for a year now. Maybe the m*ths just fancied this particular ball.

Hellie and her dressmaker-friend have asked for a scan of the Unst Bridal Shawl pattern-picture, and for a sample of the lace. They can have the whole original edging – you'll remember that I knit it first, thinking to do the shawl edging-inwards, and then, for reasons now forgotten, decided to go for centre-outwards as the pattern is written. And when I got to the edging, decided to knit one on after all because it's fun.

That's all there's time for. I'll try to do better tomorrow.


  1. Sounds like Hellie is anxious to wear the shawl - how lovely. Our Indian summer disappeared this week as well. Here's hoping we get a revisit.

  2. Perhaps the twist is coming out of the yarn as it gets turned many times.
