I've put this lovely shawl I knitted a few weeks ago up on Ravelry, but I forgot to blog about it being busy with knitting baby items. This is yet another freebie from Ravelry called Breeze By Simone Eich.
I was pleasantly surprised when the designer, Simone, contacted me on Ravelry to say how much she liked my shawl. It was a real boost to my knitting ego LOL ;) Some days I get overwhelmed by a the amount of talented knitters and crafty bloggers out there. I spend far too much time checking out other people's creations on Ravelry and Pinterest to see what other people are doing, rather than getting on with crafting and knitting myself.
This is the first shawl I have knitted that I have finished.
Yep, another Noro item! I do love Noro - I love the colours. I got this skein of Noro Taiyo Sock 5 at The Wool Inn a while ago and it had to come home with me. It sat there with the rest of the Noro companions in my stash, waiting for the day for a pattern to be knitted up. I did some searching on Ravelry and found that someone else had knitted up this shawl in the same colour way. It looked gorgeous and thought, this is it - I had to knit it up, and it looked like it was a simple pattern to knit up.
