Hitchhiker Mark II

Keeping it short and sweet this week.  I was originally going to use this lovely yarn to make some socks, however being a newbie to knitting socks I was struggling to get the sizings correct as I needed to use a larger size of needles and didn’t have a simple sock pattern to follow using larger needles than 2.5mm.  After many attempts I frogged back and decided to go with a hitchhiker shawl.

Now up to 15 teeth on the pattern.  Not quite sure if I am liking the pooling of the colours as if I made socks they would come as stripes but I love the softness and warmth from the yarn so I am going to carry on.
