WIP Wednesday

There seems to be little time for knitting (or spinning, sewing, crafting in general!) at the moment but having made a substantial effort to restart my diet this week I have been picking up my WIP's more than usual to take my mind of snacking!

Whilst I have two shawls on my needles at the moment, the Biellese is only a few rows into the extensive ruffle edge so I'm mainly working on my Drawing Nigh gradient shawl, in a selection of Jamieson & Smith 2ply Jumper Weight. With two strands of the fingering weight yarn held together, the pattern knits up as worsted weight and is oddly appropriate for the cold, wet weather we are having at the moment! Being a more traditional 100% Shetland wool, it's not the softest at the moment but will be perfect as the autumn/winter shawl this is planned for.  The shawl is knit with five colours of yarn and as I have a bit of a 'thing' for gradient yarn, it's proving fun watching the colours develop as the next strand/colourway of yarn is added!
