Somehow my daily happy things journal (which I was using to properly keep track of my 15 in 15 goals) has fallen a little bit by the way side. It was recently found under a pile of knitting that had fallen off the couch!
So I’m taking a wild guess and thinking that these are finished objects 12 & 13 for the year.
The hat is a pattern I made up. It was a cast-on 84 stitches, do a brim, increase row then knit until it needed some decreases. It’s very slouchy. Really I could have started the decreases about an inch earlier but it’s still super cute.
The yarn is from the Fiberista Club. I went on a bit of a club binge earlier this year and signed up for another YarnvsZombies club, the Fiberista club, and also the Fandom of the Month club.
It’s LYDIA Sock in colourway ‘Watermelon Wine Cooler’. I think it matches my hair quite well.
(Yes this is a selfie while I’m outside the pub waiting for a taxi. There are still ends that need weaving in….)
The wibbly wobbly 10th Doctor shawl has been on the needles for aaaagggeessssss. At least a year or more. Mostly due to me not being able to count and running out of yarn. Then I couldn’t remember what the pattern was or where I was up to.
Eventually I figured it out (it was the Canyonlands Shawl which is perfectly wibbly wobbly) and got stuck in again and finished it on the weekend while watching season 4 of Scandal.
Yes you’re all getting to see my dirty laundry AGAIN but there’s no other place to block a shawl with 2 kittens who think that my blocking mats are their scratching post.
I thought that I would have to block it rather aggressively to get it to curve like the picture, but I just wet it and once I pinned out the top edge it smoothed out into those gorgeous wobbly edges.
And because last time I forgot to tell HWF that there was a shawl blocking in the bathroom and he opened the door on itand nearly feell over, this one came with a warning sign.
Now if it would just hurry up and dry I’ll be able to take some dodgy shawl selfies!!!

I really like the shawl with the wavy edges. Glad you finished it. One thing came to my mind though, you live in Australia – isn’t it always hot there?
Spirally hats are the best hats- the crown always looks so nice and interesting.
I’m digging the shawl- hopefully the cats didn’t jack up your blocking!
