No exciting knitting happening here

Well, nothing exciting that I can blog about; all the exciting stuff is either work- or Christmas-related. After making several of these, I cast on a shawl which is the same stashbusting idea but bigger and triangular in shape - a snug-it-over-your-knees-when-it-gets-chilly sort of shawl. The shape came from here, but I realised (after a couple of evenings of knitting and denial) that I hated the straggly fringe thing happening down the sides. I didn't like how the fringe looked or its potential for having a red rag effect on a small black cat who loves dangly things. I frogged and started again, this time making tiny knots to join the yarns like I did for the scarves. Ditto the knitting, dislike, denial and eventual frogging. Desperate to avoid a sewing-in-of-ends scenario, I've finally settled on knitting the ends in by working six or seven stitches using both yarns. I don't know whether I was being a ditherer or merely a perfectionist (groan - and yes, I do sort my CDs into separate categories...and arrange them in alphabetical order inside each category...) but I'm fairly happy with version 3. It's coming along nicely now...

It's looking lovely, with the added bonus of (I hope) being a stashbuster!

looks wonderful:)

Ooh. Pretty... I'm not going to ask about how much purple stash you have; glass houses, and all that...

Just my sort of colours......
