This shows the difference in size between the 2 Forest Canopies I have knit. The first one had 2 extra repeats abnd the latest has 5.
A close up, I think the edging works although my blocking isn't very even.
May try an arty shot when the washings off the line.

Pattern is of course the infamous Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl.
I did 14 pattern repeats so hopefully it'll cover a bit of my back as well.
Yarn: Yarn Yard Charity yarn for October with an edging of Pink Goth.
Secret Summer Santa Parcel appears to have been appreciated so I can now sleep easy again, what a worry that was.
Now the stress of joining a Knitalong looms, a lace one at that.

Well I like notebooks too......very sad I know.
These have gone on the list, how long they will be there is not worth putting your money on, although the yarn is reliant on someone else and the queue thats in front of me!
Can you imagine me just ordering a notebook, that would certainly be a lost bet.

I happened to look at Etsy today, as you do, and there was 40% discount from the seller who I bought from a few weeks back. So I had to support the cause and bought the above. $12.50 is a bargain in my book for 462 yards of sock wool and that's including the postage.
I read alot of blogs and also comment on some and have finally managed to join something . The Angel Yarns Forum Secret Santa Summer Holiday. Now I'm panicking about what to buy and will the recipient like it. Its only £20 but I'd like to get as much as I can that they will appreciate. Think the postcard will be the easiest thing and with a name like SussexYorkie surely the clues will be easy. Its both exciting and worrying in one, I'm glad most of us are humans!
Back on the DIY front, the plasterer is due tomorrow so even more has been removed, Dining Table to Garage and contents of Wardrobes onto Spare Bed.
We are sleeping in it tonight......

Not only is it impossible to paint evenly it skins your knuckles in the process, so innocent me decided that as we decorate each room we would get the ceilings re plastered, fool that I am. Then he who must be obeyed thought that whilst the bedroom was in confusion we may aswell put lights in the ceiling of the Dining room below. That's where the book mountain lives and the glass mountain and most other mountains that can be hidden behind closed doors. Its only then you realise that its possibly better not to fill cupboards. So the Kitchen now holds enough glasses to supply a public house but they are easy to reach!

Yesterday the weather held out for us to BBQ but we raced in side for pudding.
Today we have been out and about visiting the Brighton Artists Open Houses which is part of the Brighton Festival. There are some very clever people out there. If we'd won the lottery last night I think we would have spent a substantial amount, sadly we didn't but we did manage to buy some very delicious Tea and Cake.
Finally we have put 2 of the knitting bags on eBay to see if there is any interest. Take a look here. Fingers crossed the prices are realistic and the pictures show enough, I know they are well made but it was my Mum who made them so I suppose that's a bit of bias for you.
