FO: Frozen Leaves

FOs are falling off my needles faster than leaves drop from the trees in Autumn, or so it seems. The only trouble is that I do not have the time to document them properly right now.

This week’s cursory FO post is Frozen Leaves. A triangular shawl designed by Anusla for herself.  The chart presented some challenges when I first approached this project but I learned that it was being re-charted by Sandralice and like2makethings (see Ravelry Forums) – I frogged and began again once the charts were released.

It was worth the wait – the new charts were simple and easily followed. Progress was rapid.

The shawl is very beautiful and I love it, but I shall never use it. I would like to give it away – perhaps to a bride? All I ask in return is a donation to p/hop (or to MSF directly)  and a photograph of the shawl being worn, to add to this blog.

A couple of claims on the shawl are in, but I’d like to receive more and then choose the recipient I would most like to have it. I will post it anywhere in the world at my own expense and I would like the shawl to go perhaps to somebody who lacks the means to acquire an item like this themself – or is otherwise especially deserving of a treat. Contact me if you have a home for this to go to.

It has been a busy day, not much time for anything. We walked the dog this morning but I took no photographs until I decided to take a few potshots in the village on our way back.

Deeply disappointed by our early return from the Dordogne and buoyed up by slightly cooler weather we effected our plan to go out “little and often” in an attempt to train the cats for living in the new van.
