No waste here

Scrap sock. Thought I'd start to use up my leftovers. So this is a mix of Opal Harry Potter - in Lupin and some Reggia. Knit over 64sts on 2.75mm circs using an after thought heel.

Now I just need to choose whether number 2 is the same or a reversal of the colourways? These are destined to be used for dog walking boots so they aren't going to be visible so maybe I'll go quirky with the colours.

Travelling Women Shawl

I knit this for a friend who has travelling in her future.

It's on the blocking mat right now.

I started Saturday 14th August and cast it off today.

Now I have to make one for me!

Techie bits.

Pattern - Travelling Women by Liz Abinante - free pattern on Ravelry.

I extra repeat of chart A because I used finer yarn and two size smaller needle.

Yarn - Handmaiden Seasilk - 100g skein in a mix of rich orangey tones- deep umbers, through marmalades to rich deep gold - I used 69g in total.

Needle- 3.5mm straights and circs.
