a new Shavo beginning

After knitting the Shavo pattern in grey for the husband, last month, I began knitting the same pattern for myself, but in pink.

I knitted the front piece first because that’s the piece that needed shaping for the neck & shoulders. Once rows are sorted for that, the back is just a rectangle with the same number of rows.

The “top secret very important” crafting project is now finished – ready to be posted and to be revealed in February.   With that done,  I’ll be getting back to some unicorn xstitch soon.  In the meantime, I sat out in the kitchen for a couple of hours and made up a set of 10 xmas decorations from a diamond painting kit I was gifted  this Christmas.


They were supposed to all be done in red & white, but I fancied playing around with leftover drills from other kits. So I did !

  1. That pattern is obviously a hit with you! When I find one I like and that fits well I do tend to make it several times with slight variations. The decorations are delightful – the gold star particularly leaps out at me!

    • thanks Sharon. Funny because as a child my Mum always dressed me in blue, but I do like this kind of soft pink (goes with my grey hair lol).

    • yes I enjoy a bit of diamond painting, since I first discovered it early last year. It’s fairly mindless to do, but it’s quite relaxing.
