I do love casting on for something new. It is a habit I have to keep in check though, or I can tend to end up with numerous UFOs floating around the house.
For this week's Love Your Library Challenge, I have pulled out this free knitting book that came with Issue 100 of Simply Knitting magazine.
I am not sure how long I have had this, but I noticed that the current issue is No 129.
I have always loved Simply Knitting magazine, particularly for the Alan Dart toy patterns. See, look at the front cover of that latest issue - how cute is the Sugar Plum Fairy!
Do not need any more patterns, do not need any more patterns!
So anyway, back to the point! I have cast on for the Childry Shawl from the free book, using my lovely Madelinetosh.
Still not sure if I really like the garter stitch or whether it looks a bit too simple for this gorgeous yarn. What do you think?
The younger boys are happy as they ordered some Lego with their Christmas money and it arrived today! A quick trip to the post office to pick up the parcels and they were busy building.
Linking today with Snapdragon Crafts for the Love Your Library Challenge and Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Crafting On.
