Last minute knitting...again!

I'm trying to knit a shawl to wear for a wedding this weekend. I don't know why I do this to myself!It's pretty unlikely it will be finished in time. There are four pairs of charts and I have worked the first two pairs. Ahem. Sorry for the bad photo, it rained pretty heavily here all day. 

The pattern is Campside by Alicia Plummer. I think it's my first go at one of her patterns and I really like it. I like knitting charted lace, and I like the pattern of this shawl, with eyelets in increasing frequency. The yarn is also gorgeous. A bamboo blend, it's shiny and soft and sooo drapey. It's going to be a perfect summer shawl. When it gets finished!

I'm still reading The Second Deadly Sin and quite enjoying it. For a cheap modern paperback this is really good, and I highly recommend it if you like murder mysteries. Don't forget to head over to the Yarn Along to see what other bloggers are crafting and reading this week.


  1. That is beautiful yarn. Fingers crossed you get finished!

    1. of course...I didn't! But we had a lovely time all the same.

  2. lovely shawl and I was hoping you finished in time but maybe there will be another wedding to wear it!
