The Ingrid Shawl

10 July 2010

Ingrid 2

Another bit of knitting from when I was in hospital.  A friend, Ingrid, came to visit me and brought the yarn (hand-dyed by her), the pattern (Multnomah), the needles and stitch markers.  Everything I’d need to get knitting.  That was a perfect present for a knitter stuck in hospital. 

I messed up the last few rows (I blame the drugs again) so just cast off.  It looked pretty dreadful, which I realised when the effects of all those opiates had worn off, so I was a very good little knitter, ripped it back a few rows and finished it properly.  Love it.

  4. Also, I’m enjoying listening to your comments about the Easter Show on David Reidy’s podcast. I’m a little behind the times I guess.


  5. The name of this pattern brought bck wonderful memories of visiting the Multnomh Falls in Oregon. It is a bit waterfall-ish, don’t you think?


  6. That is absolutely gorgeous, Sally! Well done!


  7. Wow, you are the quick knitter – well done. The yarn is Kiama (50% silk 50% wool).
