A Christmas Book & A (mink!) shawl (redux)


On the 6th day of Christmas
I opened Elizabeth's Goudge's 
and it is just lovely ~ both profound, comforting and cozy! 
*
I ended up making mistakes, had to frog it,
and my beloved size 2 needles that were my Oma's
were no longer working (for this project that is)
So now I am using a new set of size four circular metal needles
and (mainly) the seed stitch and am about where I was before.
*
I have various ideas for the edging that I hope to do when it is finished.
It's a slow process as the yarn is so fine!

What are you reading and creating?
Yarn Along with us!

How fun that you are counting the days of Christmas...we've never celebrated them. I'll put that on my list so I can find some ideas for ways to engage the family...any suggestions? Sorry about your Oma's needles. :(

I had no idea she wrote a Christmas book! I'll have to look into that. Hope your shawl goes well this time.

The book you're reading sounds very interesting. I hope your shawl knitting goes well this time. It's a lovely color of yarn you choose.
