FO: Autumn Light – Aestlight Shawl

Not my first Aestlight by any means. I just love this pattern as it provides an eminently wearable neck warmer for everyday use. The garter stitch drape menas that it wraps around just beautifully.

This is my fifth Aestlight – the fourth awaits some yarn spinning before it can be completed. This one sprang to life as a teaching example.

Pattern: Aestlight by Gudrun Johnston

Yarn: ColourMart 100% Super Fine Geelong 3/14NM Fingering Weight (4 shades of green and russets)

Notes: Small size, made as written apart from the colour changes

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarché to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
