Back to the old post. It's about wool :D
'So is there anyone left out there who hasn't been taken over by the Outlander obsession? I was late coming to the series as I hadn't enjoyed the books as much as many of Diana Gabaldon's fans, but one evening, I was browsing my 'Prime' options and decided to give it a go.
The acting is good, the scenery stunning, but the costumes are the show stealers, especially the knitwear! I'm not a great knitter, I've admitted before, but suddenly I had the drive to sit down and get out the needles.
Now for the challenge: Lets make a Claire Fraser shawl.
So here's what I suggest. If you want to join in, add your name in the comments and then each week post photos of your progress, then we can all visit each other and be inspired.
My latest shawl is really a very wide scarf and as you can see, I've had to fill in with a different wool as it turned out I only had one ball and not the three that I thought I had! I think the wool faeries have pinched it!
I have some links to other patterns that I'll be trying, but for now, I think I ought to go to school as the children may notice I'm not there :D
