Wrapped in Care 2

Another shawl in this periwinkle yarn for the Wrapped in Care programme. This one is the simplest triangle with some YOs added for interest. It was a pleasure to knit, although it takes some time to achieve an appropriate width at the top. I'm using straight needles so it is very bunched up by that point. Casting off is a revelation.

Last weekend, I compared notes with my work mates on plans for Saturday. The highlight of my day was to be collecting a load of well-rotted FYM from a colleague's field where she keeps horses. Even I thought it sounded downbeat as a leisure activity.

Saturday dawned to quite heavy rain, but it faired up enough to allow us to set out. In heavy drizzle, we clambered acroos the midden to reach the well-rotted sector, ankle deep in horse-muck. Twelve bags later, we drove off, filthy and sweating, but feeling that we had got a treasure.

I read about your plans for a trip to Sweden on Jean's blog. Bohuslan is the county where Gothenburg (Goeteborg) is located, and I believe the museum is in the vicinity of that city. Susanna Hansson of has made Bohusstickning her area of specialty. Visit her site and e-mail her with questions. On her site you will find a link allowing you to e-mail her. Enjoy your trip!
