I'm not exactly able to do much knitting at the moment as it's always busy at the start of our holidays even when I'm not looking after a daughter who arrived on antibiotics for one infection and within a day of getting here, hurt her back and has been unable to lift either of her two young children. Fortunately she is on the mend.
Here is what I was working on before we came to France:
A Handsome Triangle from Jane Sowerby's Victorian Lace Today and isn't it beautiful?
And some more pictures...
I used 4.5mm needles with Silk 'de la Mer' - colour Pearl Rose - from Piece of Beauty Yarns. This yarn is such a silky and soft combination of silk (70%) and sea cell (30%) and 600m to 150gm. I didn't pay enough attention to the yardage requirements when I bought my yarn so my shawl isn't as big as in the book but it is quite big enough.
In the rush of getting ready for holiday I forgot to measure the shawl after blocking so I will add those details when we get home later (much later).
And this bag for Kate
The Rowan lady at the Kingston John Lewis shop told me what to do. It's knitted in Rowan Summer Tweed on 4.5mm needles and the different coloured stripes are based exactly on the colours of Martin Storey's "Sunshine", a short-sleeved top, in Rowan's Kasbah Collection.
