A wet week in the Lakes means limited outdoor fun but lots of knitting time. You were all so encouraging about my first attempt at designing that I couldn’t wait to have another go. Broughton is a generously-sized asymmetrical wrap born from an afternoon playing around with short rows!
More garter stitch. Oh how I love garter stitch.
Much as I love knitting small 1 skein shawlettes, I rarely, if ever wear them. For me, the perfect shawl is generous in width but shallow in depth – lots of wrapping potential.
I know I’m not the only knitter with an abundance of sock yarn. Luxury single skeins get me every time. I also have a thing for combining 2 colours and can sit for ages poring over possible combinations. Loved knitting Ulmus for this reason.
This is actually the second version of Broughton - the first one being in a much bolder colour scheme. Will get that photographed and blogged as soon as possible. If all goes to plan the pattern for Broughton should be available to downoad on Rav very soon.
Bowland is almost ready for release too so keep an eye on Ravelry if you expressed an interest in it earlier.
Now what next?
***eta – for those who have taken a shine to those shorts. They’re River Island and available here. ***
