After what seems like the forever of 'thinking about making stuff' situation that was going on Chez Trash (which we shall blame on the days and weeks and years of continual downpour we have had recently - 'drought' my arse!) I finally committed to making stuff. One bc I wanted to know I could do it, one I was pretty certain I could do it and FIVE that I have to do bc I kickstarted the whole thing over at the FQ 2012 flickrpage.
The one I love is the Maluka and by Tuesday I had completed 3/4 of it, then I realised that 8 stitches extra that are not part of the pattern on one side of a shawl is a bad thing and so have had to frog it back to where things are even. I may have cried a little.
So to keep myself going while my not very clever brain tried to figure out short rows (turns out I should trust the pattern) I 'whipped up' this Wingspan shawlette/drapey thing in some Regia sockyarn. Marmalade Yarns had a pair of socks all knitted up from this and they looked ace but we won't mention me and sock knitting in the same breath for a while yet. They were all stripey and lovely and then I saw the Wingspan pattern and, apart from a small difficulty at the beginning wherein I was knitting a rectangle, I think the stripey loveliness worked just as well when not meant for feet.
If you hear nothing by June send help.
