I told you Roisin would not stick to the pattern for the shawl she is knitting with the lovely Aruacania yarn. Here’s what she just sent me: 


“88 stitches.  Pattern says knit 90 stitches and then divide for the neck,  but I’m going to go to 150 stitches (I think) to get the size I want.  Still have 29 grams left on a 50 gram ball. Lovely to knit with.

Not a bad way to spend the afternoon, listening to Leonard Cohen, knitting, chatting to customers.  Life is good!”
