FO Friday: Nothing really new

Sorry for posting so late, life seems to get in the way sometimes :0)

Well better late than never. I ususally share pictures of knitting projects however I am rather pleased with this cross stitch that hangs on the wall in my livingroom.

This Cross Stitch was done in 2000

I finally washed and blocked the Walk for Shetland shawl  by Anna Szymanowska, I transcribed the translated pattern and test knit the English version. Anna was kind enough to give me permission to share the translation with you. I knit this in worsted on 5mm needles.

    That shawl is pretty. I love the purple.

    It’s nice to see the cross stitch. It’s been ages since I last crossed stitched something.

    That’s a beautiful shawl! The color is so cheerful. I love counted cross-stitch but sadly cannot do it but a few stitches at a time anymore. Too many years of little stitches and punching a computer every day put an end to that hobby. I do enjoy the pieces I have hanging around the house and “resting” in drawers. Perhaps some day when I am not a slave to the computer anymore I’ll take it up again. I have several projects that need to be finished. Thank you for sharing your beautiful works.
