Day out with knitting

Yesterday, I met up with Liz for her birthday day out; we went to look at lovely things at the De Morgan Centre. This little bit of culture was sandwiched between coffee with birthday presents and a long pub lunch. Lunch and knitting evaporated the afternoon very happily.

At Ally Pally last year, I bought a skein of Hand Maiden Angel Hair in a beautiful greeny blue colourway. I intended to knit Icarus, but was thwarted by the difficulty I had knitting with the yarn and promptly renamed it Devil's Spawn. After frogging the beginning of the shawl several times, I gave up and passed the remaining yarn over to Liz so she could knit herself something with it. She's good at dealing with yarn I can't handle! Yesterday, a nicely wrapped package was shoved in my direction and I was told to open it.

Icarus

She'd knitted Icarus for me in the Devil's Spawn and it's gorgeous! 'Thanks' seemed a rather inadequate thing to say...

What a beautiful shawl, such lovely colours. Might we see you in it before the start of really hot weather?

Maybe on Saturday, unless it's chucking it down with rain!

WOW!!!

You are a very lucky girl. That is quite delicious.
