Glimpses of Brighton...
Examining my reluctance

On the border

I've been knitting away on this shawl since the Ravelympics, in between finishing a couple of pairs of plain vanilla socks.

Outlander September 13 start of border 

Yes, I know it's green, not purple, which is rather surprising but I like how the colour's knitting up. The pattern is Claire's Shawl; it's the first time I've knitted a square shawl in the round. At the moment, the knitting looks like a big bunched-up blob but I have high hopes that the shawl will block beautifully. The yarn is the-now-sadly-discontinued Jaeger MatchMaker Merino 4ply hand dyed in shades of green with a dash of soft chestnut brown here and there.

I've finished the body of the shawl and started the knitted-on edging. 10 repeats done; 110 still to go, not to mention the corner charts. To paraphrase Captain Oates, I may be some time....

Green seems to be the in colour! That is a lovely shade of green.
