Whilst sitting around giving the needle eating cat lots of attention and cuddles I've managed to finish a knitted lace shawl/scarf.
It's a beautiful, fine, baby alpaca and silk yarn from Eden Cottage Yarns which I bought at the Knitting and Stitching show in October.
The pattern is from Ravelry (Daisy Chain Shawl)
I've never used beads in knitting before but they were surprisingly easy to do and add a nice weight and slight sparkle to it. There's one in the centre of each flower and one at the end of each point.
And just as I was wondering what I could knit next the latest Brooklyn Tweed pattern book fell into my inbox, so that sorted that one out - new yarn ordered and pattern downloaded, oh and more knitting needles ordered as despite having a drawer full I don't have the right size ones to knit Merle (how can that be?)!
As for said cat, he's fine, 100%! Enjoying a little snooze in amongst some fabric earlier on
