A nice speculative post...


So Mary Kate looks a treat in her eternity shawl. To be honest, I think she bounces between the roles of style maven and bag lady. And if I met her, I'd buy her a pie. But I like the shawl.

ASOS.com liked it too. But £120? Nope. I can make this. It has reminded me of a stash of pale blue mohair mix that I have residing in the bottom of a plastic box. I might not love it enough to consider mastering the moebius cast on but I can easily knit a long scarf on big needles in mohair and graft the ends together. A little lace patterning, the odd YO and I'll have saved myself £120.

Although I must first finish my sock. I reached heel territory before work this morning and intend to turn-away this evening...

Too right! On the counts of the pie and the fact that long scarf+grafting=saving a lot of £££.

Good luck turning your heel!
