A FCS for Polly

As you can see, I have been "at it" again - here is a FCS in Yarn Yard Lochan. This one was made for Polly ( Ravelry Link ) who is the creation of a cyberfriend, Binty, who has an amazing talent.

I forgot to measure it before I posted it, but my floor tiles measure 12" square which gives an idea of size. It was knitted using leftover yarn from an earlier FCS that I had made for Binty. Those of you who have knitted this shawl will know that it simply eats yarn towards the end, so while there had not been enough yarn left for a third extra pattern repeat, there was sufficient to knit the set-up rows, four repeats and a border. I knew I was saving the yarn for good reason.







A couple of modelled shots (thank you Binty ). Isn't Polly fab :-)
