I've been busy

I've had a bout of finishing things. Not my favourite occupation, but sometimes you just have to bite the bullet and force yourself...
I'm pleased with this one! Cast on in October, It was a bit of a struggle finishing the last ten or so rounds as there were well over 700 stitches on the needle.
I've also blocked several shawls that were knitted over the last couple of years, then stuffed in a drawer and definitely weren't ready to wear. This is one of them, a rectangular wrap in Colinette Cadenza.
I've also knitted (and blocked!) a scarf-size Ishbel by Isolda Teague using my hand dyed 4ply merino,
crocheted a couple of easy shawls in Noro Silk Garden
and made some colourful swatches for a workshop.
I think I need to go have a little lie down now...
