Shawl's progress

Yesterday much knitting was done whilst travelling by SW Trains and the Underground so the shawl has grown to this .....

Am having doubts whether the dress will be warm enough to wear on Sunday, the wind chill factor has brought the temperatures down. As requested here's a couple of views of the dress, worn in June 2010 for son's wedding, but with big hat and purple jacket.

Although it doesn't seem apparent in the picture the shawl and dress colours are very similar. I have another dress with purple as its main colour so the shawl will go with that too.

Reason for much train travel was that I went and met Ian after his exam ordeal, we lunched at CafĂ© Rouge in Whiteleys before going to the Kaffe Fasssett A life in colour: 50 years of textile art exhibition at the Fashion and Textile Museum in Bermondsey Street, about half a mile from London Bridge. Closes on 29th June so not much time to view.

Will show my photographs and give my thoughts another day, my knitting calls. Would like to knit outside but it is just too gusty.


  1. Congrats on being able to knit on the train and tube. My hero! I can see the colours will look good together.

  2. It's been cold here too, especially as we've hardly seen any sun until today. I like the dress, I can see you in it!

  3. The dress looks good and it IS apparent from the pictures that the shawl matches it perfectly!

  4. Shawl looks lovely. Dress is pretty, too
