Ellisr,
I take my hat off to you. Not only can you knit very quickly you can just make them up.  :)

I am hopeless at anything like that and need a pattern to follow.  Were you taught your crafts or is it something that you have just grown into?

My Great Grandma taught me but I really didn't knit anything to wear until I was an adult and I don't really think in pattern form , more like what do I have to do to reach a certain shape. I am rubbish at reading patterns because of my dyslexia.

OMG OMG OMG I ma in love with the shawl I am making at the moment, it should be finished by the end of the film OH has just put on. I can't wait I know this one is for the exhibition but I may just have to get some more wool and do one for my collection.

People with dyslexia are often creative, eg Leonardo da Vinci, Picasso, Jorn Utzon (Sidney Opera House).

I ran out of one of the yarns with 8 rows to go, so have to go and get some this morning so pictures will be delayed. I think this one maybe sold and not make it to the exhibition, but with all of my items it is first come first served.

It is all finished after a very frustrating wait for the shop to open, and I accidently bought too much so I will just have to make one for me ;)

Thats very nice and love the colours when you look close up at it.  Well done

There is something similar in the book I have just bought. They call it a 'cuddle' which sounds very cosy.

I have that book and yes it is very similar, I got the book after I knit the first one and realised she increases and decreases at the end where I do mine at the beginning and I think she starts with 8 stitches and I choose 10 to start. Looking at her pattern I think it maybe a bit wider than mine as well. The book was a bit boring for me I was expecting more but that is maybe because I had already worked out similar patterns myself.

That looks sooo lovely and warm.  I could do with it right now as my central heating has broken down  >:(
