Today’s Wednesday WIP is all but a Friday FO, in fact. This Amalia Shawl was cast on at the weekend and I finished it off at Spinning today, casting it off after the ladies went home.
I knew as soon as I saw the pattern released on Ravelry that I wanted to make this shawl. When my wee blue baggie arrived from Colourmart on Saturday morning and I saw the colour of the Cotton/Silk fingering… I knew I had to go for it. The Teardrop stole had been sending me a wee bit crazy and I was ready for a change of pace. I thought by the time I had cranked an Amalia out I might be ready to go back to 1-into-nine stitches and tiny wee beads. However, I am not sure that I am… yet.
The shawl is wrapped in a towel now and I am about to block it. I fear that it will not block out very far at all and will henceforth be known as the Amalia Scarf.

Spinning cake today was another fruit cream flan – apple and blackberry this time – plus a tray of flapjacks with nuts and raisins.
One semi-interesting thing from Spinning chatter today – Joanna told me that Woolgathering had made a list of the best UK knitting blogs… I have no idea how – or why!
I guess that there can’t be all that many… Anyway, you might like to go look at the other 99 – I intend to explore a few new blogs from the list myself, as soon as I have time.
Spinning group is here again next week. How about suggesting a cake recipe for me to try?
