#Knitting #Swallowtail

I mentioned a few weeks back that I was working on a shawl. It’s a present for my good friend, work colleague and fellow Knitter Lynda who is retiring. I will really miss working with her. The reason why I chose to make her a Swallowtail (see http://www.evelynclarkdesigns.com/pdf/Swallowtail.pdf) is that one day, both on our days off and not planned at all, we ended up bumping into each other at a local LYS. She saw the shawl hung up on display and really liked it – however she felt the yarn that they used was too much money and (like most knitters) had to many other things she wanted to knit.

Here are a few pictures for you.

Whatever anyone says

Really I’m not so bad. Yes I am a crafter. Yes I love fabric, threads and yarn. Yes it is true that there is a craft I’ve always wanted to take up and today I tried it for the first time. Today I had a go at proper lace making! FABULOUS!

Yes it’s true that I’ve recently broken my yarn fast but I’ve also given some away – there is a blog post pending on that when I find the right words. However my stash is not as bad as this:

So there!

What I’m up to

It’s been a roller coaster over the past few days so many things happening! One of the things I’ve been doing is increasing my exercise. I’ve been doing Boot Camp, Zumba, Swimming and even an attempt at a run!

If you follow me on Pintrest my motivation board is growing! I’m trying hard to lose weight and get fit. I have a bizarre idea in my head – we will see if it comes to fruition. Anyway in my quest I came across this link which I love! I hope you find some inspiration too!
