This is terrible: two show-and-tells in a row that involve shopping and spending money. I’ll be shot at dawn if the old man finds out…

Is it OK to shop if it is bargain-based? I think that it might be 🙂

Colourmart posted some eBay cone end sets last week and I thought that they looked like really good weaving practice yarns…

Brandywine is a special pattern – most of the sale price is donated to MSF.

Simply the most wearable of shawls; a garter stitch body is knitted from the point upwards, maximising use of yarn, with a stocking stitch lace border and point edging added as you go. It is reminiscent of Aestlight, but the construction is very different indeed.

I made mine from a stashed skein of Smooshy.

Details and gallery.
