Episode Info: Episode 10 (Rework) The head up Welcome to Knitting Kris. Thank you for downloading and most importantly listening to my podcast. This week I will be explaining my long absence, a book review and what I am knitting. Not necessarily in that order, but lets live life on the edge. The long gap Hello and welcome to my 10th episode. It has been a while since I issued a podcast. That you have my apologies if you missed me and if you did not, then well, no apology needed. Longs gaps in things do tend to break up the flow of things, but I was really struggling for content.

It is a semi-circular shawl. The patten is divided into three sections with two colours: a solid colour section in the main colour, a striped section with both colours and a border with the secondary colour. It comes in three sizes small, medium and large. I chose this pattern since it is a masculine shawl and seems to offer enough complexity and interest for me. The main colour I am using is one ball of Schoppel-Wolle Crazy Zauberball which is a blue green affair. The colour progresses as you knit.
