I've been knitting

I love knitting Evelyn Clark's designs and recently finished another lace triangle. I used yarn from Fine Fibre Isle which used to operate in P.E.I., but I understand it's (regretfully) no longer in business. Although they are hard to see in the photograph, I've added beads from Italy on the edge and points. They show up better in actual wearing.

I've started Gudrun Johnston's hap shawl, knit in Jamieson & Smith, 2 Ply Lace Weight. However, I've had to put it aside now that I'm at the complicated lace part, where I have to concentrate on each row. 

Today I received the latest edition of 60 North. As always, it's full of interesting news about Shetland, including an article by Kate Davies about Wool Week.
