Two New Shawls

My second start at Centrique, due to yarn choice decisions, went great & I got the shawl completed in four days. I love the colours in the yarn and how they show off the pattern really well.

Was about to block it Thursday evening but James, who had been very unwell since Tuesday and was at the GP twice on Wednesday, developed a far worse headache than before and his temperature shot to 38.5 degrees celsius so I took him to Cavan A&E where he was admitted until Saturday afternoon. We’re still in limbo with a diagnosis (“it’s probably virus”), he’s not fully better yet but he’s improved on what he was.

Anyway, as I was stuck in Cavan with him for the duration, I asked Gerard to bring me a skein of Malabrigo Sock in Solis that I had been holding on to for ages as it looked so gorgeous in the skein. My good friend, Scattyhats on Ravelry, suggested a Milkweed KAL so I didn’t take much persuading. Having the pattern in my Ravelry library meant I could view it on my iPhone. Isn’t technology great?

I called my Milkweed “Lisdarn” as that’s the name of the townland where the hospital is located.

This is the un-blocked piece

Hoping to block both later. Photos to follow.
