Two shawls cranked out and ready to be given as gifts and trust me my needles have been flying.
Feather and Fan pattern
I had some aran weight yarn that just begged to be knitted up into this stole the colours do not show up well but it has a lovely lilac, pink and fawn colouring.
My other shawl was rather different and to be honest I am not entirely sure I like it.
Less is More Shawl
The think is it has one long side and two shorter ones anyway I knitted it up as I was asked to make it and it came out okay.

Now for the Fish Blanket.
A Recipe for Fish
This is fun to make and I have made one strip so far and it will be heading off to someone who loves fish so I am making it bright and colourful.
They are so easy and quick to knit I pick a colour at random and knit it up into a fish.
I have never joined anything using crotch before so I have learned something new.
At the moment the squares are on hold as I have a lot of stuff to make.
After this I have 3 shawls to make but thankfully they are not needed until later in the year but if I can get them made I can put them away until they are needed.
Problem is I have to find the yarn weights as they are Vintage patterns.
This I think is DK but I could be wrong
I think this is a 4ply knitted on larger needles but not sure
This one could be aran weight yarn.
So I am asking around to see if anyone has an idea as the yarn weights needed they will be Prayer shawls and I love the patterns but want to get the yarn weights as close as possible.
