Reasons to be Cheerful

No. 1 – The sun has come out (finally)
No. 2 – I have made my selection for my Nordic Shawl – very excited
No. 3 – All that squishy Merino goodness makes me very happy
No. 4 – I really enjoy putting the colours together to see what looks good (I’m sure there is a ‘qualified’ way to do this but as I am not qualified I just did what I liked!)
No. 5 – I had such a choice (overdid it on the yarn again!) that three colours didn’t make it to the final selection although I’m sure I will use them for something as they are also gorgeous. Β My choices also changed a bit from my previous post. Β Now they are: Main Colour Faye (348) Alabaster (003), Sea Salt (380), Sunday (349), Firecracker (340), Julep (307) and Eskimo (342).
No. 6 – I have completed the first 40 rows (which hooked up quickly and was comfortingly repetitive) but now we get to the fun colours part!
No. 7 – I actually managed to get outside to take some of the photos – chilly, but sunny!
Sorry, had to use this photo twice as it’s yummy!
No. 8 – I am ToTAlLy in LUrrVvE with Sublime extra fine merino DK and would like ALL the colours please
No. 9 – My shawl will be ready for my RoMAntiC weekend away with Mr Hippy in Amsterdam!

No. 10 It’s Friday!

Happy Weekend, everyone!

  1. ooooo, loving your yarn! The colours are wonderful, isn't it fun to figure out the order for the Nordic Shawl? Of course I love your base colour – but I'm sure you see how it matches mine, such great taste! πŸ˜‰ Have a fun weekend hooking away, can't wait to see your progress! (and please consider linking it to my CAL?) Chrissie x


  2. Hi Chrissie. Thanks for your lovely comment. I popped over to your blog and love your version of the shawl – can't believe there are so many in blogland – and all different, but that's the beauty of the imagination! Thanks for following. Will post more pics soon as the border is nearly finished – yayyyyy! I've linked to your CAL too – what a good idea. X
