That is stunning. I've done a bit of intarsia and find it quite hard to manage the balls of yarn.  I am so impressed that you could do cable at the same time.  But it was well worth it as the final shawl is beautiful and unusual.

Thanks. It is super cosy as well Smiley

As for managing the balls, I did fijnd it a little easier because when I do the purl rows I don't turn my work but knit backwards. Saves all those yarns tangling up together.  Grin

I am afraid I can't help you...I am an enabler and will be sending you some more yarn soon...I am sorry...but at least you have projects set for the yan! Grin

I have no willpower Roll Eyes ....I just ordered 1 hank of a Hand dyed 4ply from Old Maiden Aunt yarns I have been lusting after for months because she is having a 'smoke sale' with 25% of all current stock until it runs out.

(For those curious to know it's 'Jaded')

Think it might go very nicely with one of the yarns you are sending me AIMR  Grin

SO I just wanted to share my latest finished shawl. I am super proud of this one because it is the first time I did intarsia cable knitting and also the first time I have done cable knitting without a cable needle.

this is my Celtic Myths shawl:



I made it with yarn (DK Drops Karisma Yarn) which was a thank you gift from a new friend. Plus it's not my normal colours (blues & purples) so that was a challenge too.  Grin

I am in need of an intervention... this weekend I have just bought enough yarn to knit 6 hats for my Dad (for a birthday present) and a baby jacket, hat, booties and baby mitts for my BF's 1st child (due in October).

I thought I was supposed to be not buying craft things this year!!!

It is such fun lurking on this thread - there are so many pretty things!

I have finished my  "Keep me warm" (Fake) Swap item for my dad. Nothing fancy but a warm, soft simple knitted beanie to keep my Dad's "wee baldie heid" warm  Grin



Nice quick pattern to knit up, it only took me 3 days knitting before work & during my lunches.
