Autumn leaves? No way!

It's still summer and I've spent time with my four grandchildren and their parents. They all love the sea and bathe until they're shivering. And no, I'm not fond of camping life as my friends know very well.
The caravan belongs to my eldest daughter and her family. It's nice to have a meal there with my beloved family on a sunny day, but to sleep and cook in it, that's not for me. I've tried twice so I know!
There's not much time for knitting when the children are around, but my youngest daugter and I sneaked off to a café early in the morning for some breakfast and knitting.



She was knitting a shawl of her own design.



I tried to knit a wrist warmer, but I couldn't knit the very simple pattern so I had to frog it when I got home.




I've made my version of the Panda Silk DK Fan Shawl .

I've knit it in Zauberball sock yarn, and when I blocked it I had forgotten that the modules should have a rounded form, not a pointed......
I'll see if I let it stay pointed or if I block it again. The shawl reminds me of autumn, but I hope that there will be at least two months before we are there!

Very nice shawl! Hoppas hösten väntar även om man gärna vill använda sina sjalar. Trevligt att besöka sina barn. Har varit i Malmö hela helgen och hälsat på äldste sonen.

Fint med en liten stickstund på morgonkvisten. Ni är väl rätt morgonpigga båda två, om jag inte minns fel. =)
Pandasjalen blev helt underbar, vilken färg.
Ha en fortsatt fin sommar!

Sjalen är super! Vad härligt med hela "fyrklöverna" samlad. Jag gissar att ni har haft fullt upp.
Det ser ut som om ni hade en mysig frukost på Ståhlboms. Nästa gång hoppas jag att jag kan vara med...
