Making Monday

Natalie over at The Yarn Yard has started making monday blogs. The idea is you post about things you have been making on Mondays. I would have joined in the last two but all I seemed to be making was a mess with three children at home on school holidays.

This week however I got my finger out and have been finishing my boneyard shawl, Stephen West, the designer, is a genius. He specialises in making the simple look stunning. I have been hoarding some rainbow Kauni yarn for ages and although I have planned to do lots of things with it I have never started anything with it. I have started on a Stephen West knitalong and the first clue was disappointingly small so I decided to do another one of his shawls and picked out the Boneyard and grabbed the Kauni. Well it was addictive. I couldn't put it down. The yarn is very moreish, just one more to see the next colour change....

The result is a stunning shawl in a beautiful rainbow.

I couldn't wait to show it off so here are some pictures of it pre-blocked. I have also not quite finished the picot edging I added but you can see how it will look in this picture...

What did you make today?
