I'm not sure how long I sat and looked at this basket of woolly skeins. They were really too woolly to be comfortable as a sweater, so finally I found a blanket pattern that I thought suited their Gallic tendencies.
Pneumonia has forced me to sit and do nothing for the past few months, this is the result. It's more of a shawl really. There wasn't enough to finish off a proper throw, but it will be just woolly enough to cover the shoulders and stave off the cold of the coming snows.
