As promised

You may recall that I had been knitting my first garment with holes, a lovely dark brown shawl / scarf from Nefertiti's yarn. Jayne at Zanzibah was complaining that I'd not posted a picture of the finished article when I spoke to her yesterday.

So out came the mannequin and shawl today and here goes. This picture doesn't really do it justice, I am very pleased with the finished piece and it will be in the shop very soon. Once I have got Paul to sort out the picture size!
I have had to take Twiggy (my cat) back to the vets today for another blood test. She is being treated for hypothyroidism but we have been struggling to stabilise her. I have to ring up for the result tomorrow so fingers crossed she is now sorted or we may have to consider surgery. Twiggy is 16 years old and very thin so not the best candidate for surgery which will be a last resort.
