Finally... and no hairy arm in sight......










I have finished my knitted shawl in time to take with me on our train trip to Cairns on Monday. Not that I will need it in the temps up there, but the air- con in the train at night is sure to be cool.

It's so soft and warm I am really happy with it, though it did turn out rather large with me wanting to use up all the balls of wool I had bought and would you believe I was about 1 metre short for finishing the tassells in the end, so yep you guessed it, had to go buy just one more ball. Now what to do with one left over ball of teal colored wool ? not sure the color is suitable for dolls hair, lol, a mermaid maybe?.

Well done on the shawl and you can have a doll with teal hair... I use any colour wool as long as it blends in with what I have dressed her in.... trust me it will work.....

Have fun with that gorgeous grand son of yours

Diana, the shawl is wonderful. What kind of fun yarn did you use? You could make a small make-up bag with the extra ball. I make them sometimes and just stitch in the zipper and lining by hand. Just make a rectangle, fold it in half and sew the sides. Have a great time on you holiday.
