Making Monday: Magazines and Shetland Glory

Sometimes I feel like I don't have much to say for Making Monday but that's probably because I'm tired from the day job which on Mondays is very focused on making a magazine. Monday is the press day - the final day pages go to the printer - for the weekly magazine I edit, Community Care.

But even so, this evening I've been working on the final graft of my first foray into Shetland lace and indeed knitting with cobweb yarn (very very fine, for the uninitiated). This is number nine of my 11 shawls in 2011 project and being me I took on a challenge producing a stole measuring 210cm by 40cm knitted on 2.25mm needles (that's very very tiny, for the uninitiated).

The pattern Crowning Glory by Lucinda Guy was interesting and challenging - making bobbles in this size of yarn and needle takes concentration and determination - and the end product is glorious even if I say so myself.

Meanwhile you can find out more about other people's making at the Yarn Yard blog.
