Finished Mystery Shawl

Finished the shawl today, although I decided rather than do a standard cast off, I crocheted it. Now, I am not a crochet man, and this is the first real time I have done it. I have produced chains in the past that were tighter than cramp, however, this binding off seems perfectly done, which was more of a shock than anything else. I had seen a woman doing that binding off on Instagram, and thought it would be a nice finish. Who knew I would manage to get it right first time.

The pattern was from The Knitting Circle, Mystery KAL.

Cable Beanie

Since it is winter, another beanie was needed, so whilst recovering from my operation I thought I would make this beanie. It is Patons DK acrylic yarn in Petrol, using a 3.5mm & 4mm needles. The pattern is a DROPS pattern called Finnley’s Hat, and is very comfortable and warm.
