I love the way this has turned out. Almost 3 skeins has produced a drapey, heavy, triangular shawl that I’ve turned into a cape with the addition of some little buttons.
The yarn, Damask115 by Rowan is DK / 8 ply Linen, Rayon, Acrylic. It's been discontinued at my LYS (Local Yarn Shop)which is a bit disappointing. If I could find a different colour, I'd knit one for myself.

This one is for my Neice-in-Law's birthday. Why Sundae Best? The colour reminds me of the ice-cream sundaes of my childhood.

Exactly! It looked very uninspiring on the ball, which I bought because it had been remaindered and I like the yarn mix (Sssssshhh, you didn't hear me say that).

Oh, that's just lovely. Makes me want to put my ankle boots, a turtleneck, and my corduroy skirt on, wrap it round my shoulders, and go for a walk in the fall sun to kick through leaves.

A couple of stores around here carry Rowan; would you like me to keep my eyes open for the yarn? Is there a colourway you're particularly interested in?

That's a lovely offer but the cost of shipping would make it an expensive exercise. I'm scouring Ravelry and e-bay and may have found some blue on someone's Ravelry Trade Page.

It's so comfortable I'd be very tempted to keep it if it weren't pink.

I found some dark blues on e-bay at a very reasonable price. Enough for a similar one for me.

Excellent! I'll be watching for your Ravelry project. :)

I was coming to the end of the queue of lace shawls and scarves and looking forward to starting a bag in Louisa Harding yarn that's been lurking in the cupboard for over a year. Ah well, the best laid plans ......

As soon as MWNN saw it, he knew it was for her.

Very girly and so right for The Neice.

Thanks for the birthday wishes. I had a Red Hat Ladies lunch today and was given a present and birthday drinks. YaY.

Try not to overdo it in the work department. See you soon.
