Iris Shrug - Rowan 35



Well, here it is - finally!!! The lovely Iris in one of my favourite yarns Calmer. And I love it. I'm just so pleased with it that it has replaced Hike as my current favourite. It's extremely comfortable and snug and just perfect for the traditional British summer we're having (ie cold and rainy).

I went to see my mad knitting friend today and she said it was the best thing I'd knitted. However, she said the same about Hike.......DH was also very impressed when he came home and I was wearing it and he was suitably gushing. He is a very well trained knitting husband. If only it wasn't just the area of knitting he was so well trained in......but we can't have it all can we?

Last night I had a stupid half hour and didn't notice I'd made a mistake on Sophie from Linen Print Collection so now I have to frog some of it back which is most annoying. I haven't had to do that for a while. That'll teach me to get so carried away!

It's been a difficult day following all the bombings in Central London this morning. I worked in the City of London for many years so have been wondering about all my ex colleagues and friends. Lets hope tomorrow brings better news.

Iris is lovely. I always find knitting very calming when horrible times come.

Ooh, I got excited then as I have Rowan 37. I didn't think I'd seen it, it's in 35 :o)

Oops!!! Says it all really about yesterday. Have amended it now. Big apologies. Does that mean you're going to have to get no. 35 now???? :)

I am going to do Elspeth from 37 though.....perhaps my brain had already moved on......then again, maybe not.....

If I plan one more project, I am going to pop! ;o) I have only just picked up the needles after 20 years and I'm still on accessories. I really want some big jumpers and they're probably going to be after using up my huge stash. But I want an afghan for my daughter too (blanky in English of course :p) Iris is so tempting as it is small and quick. I mustn't look any more, lol.

Oh dammit i don't have that magazine... something else to look out for! Not that I need any more WIPs at the moment!
