FO: Aestlight

Pattern: Aestlight Shawl by Gudrun Johnston
Yarn: Malabrigo Sock (1 Skein- colourway Rayon Vert)
Needle Size: 4mm

I finished my Aestlight a little while ago but have only just got around to taking some pictures. I was knitting this as a mini KAL with missfee who finished her lovely Aestlight ages ago, oh well better late than never! The shawl turned out larger than I expected, considering it only requires one skein, and I love the look of the Birds Eye Lace. Such a great pattern.

Had a wonderful time visiting my parents and catching up with family, it was so nice to have a break from work and of course they spoiled me rotten. I visited Morris and Sons in Sydney and brought quite a few balls of their brand yarn called Paddington, which is a 6 ply 80% Bamboo 20% Merino bend. I also visited Kinokuniya and brought these books....

...the second book has some very cute knitted cardigans which I will take pictures of and put them in my next post.

My parents live near Bowal, so I was lucky enough to visit Wool Addiction, a very cute yarn shop (I didn't take pics!!!!). It is actually a house with four rooms full of yarns and patterns, certainly worth a visit if your ever down that way.
