Sunshine & Sparrow...

The sun finally came out of hiding and I managed to photograph this lace shawl in daylight - now you can see the colours to their best advantage.
Despite being a relatively simple repeated pattern, this was a tricky one to knit.  It seemed to go on forever as the yarn is so fine, but the colour changes added a bit of interest as the work progressed.

It is now for sale in my Etsy shop.
I've started this little watercolour of a sparrow - sparrows have to be one of my favourite birds, despite their subdued plumage they have such cheeky characters.  I'm taking my time with this, concentrating on the detail - it's very therapeutic!
