Something to show

So, its been a while since I have posted. I have been busy knitting but for quite some time I have had nothing to show for my efforts. And this is likely to remain the case for a while as I am involved in some secret knitting. More about that another day.

I finished my Elm Leaf scarf some time ago but wasn't able to block it until yesterday. I think the scarf has come up rather well. This scarf is one of the side projects of the Back to the Garden KAL.

I knitted the scarf in Bendigo Woollen Mills Classic 2ply in Peony on 2.25mm needles and used size 8/0 Matsuno beads. I knitted 15 pattern repeats for the scarf.

I have been working on the main shawl for the Back to the Garden KAL but progress has been slow and I have only finished chart 2. I'm off the Queensland for a couple of weeks so there won't be much knitting news until I return.
