I am ever so pleased to report that I finished my Ishbel shawl.
Finishing something feels so good. The last 6 or so rows were completed at my University’s new canteen, with a machine latte and a perfect view of the Pentland Hills. It was a Friday afternoon, so the canteen was quiet, with only a few devoted students studying and the odd clinician on a coffee break. As I was binding off, a woman who works in the canteen came over to chat about crafting – she’s more for crochet and sewing, but we still nattered on about yarn, patterns, the joy of making things, etc. I love knitting in public, as other knitters and crafters are always so excited to come over and chat.
