Pied Piper

Since my Mum arrived a week ago I have been working on my Pied Piper, knit from Piper’s Journey by Paula Emons-Fuessle. I cast on whilst waiting for her to land and have been quickly working on it all week to have it cast off in time for the KAL over at singlehandedknits.com. This is the home of a wonderful podcast hosted by the amazing Melissa. I if you haven’t met her, or the bunch of great people surrounding her, you must, and she has crazy fun things going on right now!! I knew about the KAL but decided not to cast on as I have a billion and one other things on my plate at the moment. But, then, I went to see everyone’s work in the FO thread in the Single Handed Knits rav group and was completely come over with project envy – a cast on swiftly ensued. I have worked this beauty from my stash with Black Water Abbey 2 ply Sportweight. It is a really hard colourway to photograph but it is a deep heathered blue, deep but dusty, and the yarn celebrates everything I love about wool! I loved this knit and the shawl even better!
And so does Mum. In one of our many trips to the yarn and fabric stores already this week, she brought some yarn to the counter and I asked her what she was going to crochet [she doesn’t knit]. Mum’s reply was that I was going to knit her a Pipers Journey for her for Christmas! Can’t wait to CO another!
What she is working on, however, is a Starburst Flower Crochet Blanket by Jane Brocket. Working on two-a-day there are already many squares to play with and we just them all laid out to decide upon what is missing… yes, we need a baby blue, and yes, its another trip to the yarn store. Off we go!!!…

  1. Thanks for sharing your lovely shawl. Your photographs show it well. It sounds as if you and your mum have wonderful fibery times together!
