Alexandra Park Roses...
Thank-you for the lovely comments about the Shetland Triangle shawl. I may well follow Frida's advice and try to block it a bit more energetically, but I think it's more or less its ultimate size now.
These flower pictures were taken on the trip to the park when we photographed the shawl. And trust me, the scent was gorgeous too.
This weekend I wasn't doing too much knitting as we went back to Balcary Bay, but I did manage to finish a baby cardigan for a friend of mine at the Glasgow Knitting Meetup who had a little boy not so long ago.
It was made in Jaeger Baby Merino 4ply in shade #105 Buttermilk, which is not as strong a colour as it appears in this photo.
Funny how there's so much seaming and ends for something so tiny!
Here's Padraig modelling the back of it. The colour is more true here.
Now, I MUST go and work on my Rowan International Exchange item.
