My beautiful Yarn 'Bouquet'.

It was my birthday a few weeks ago, to my surprize and delight my friend arrived at my door with this lovely 'bunch' of yarns!! I have to confess I squealed as it was so lovely and exciting.

So original and fun, I immediately thought of what I would make. An Autumn toned throw. I wanted to try something new, so I found by chance a nice shell stitch. Without the complete pattern and only a few guidelines, I was able to work the stitch out. I cast on 253 stitches (42 lots of 6 plus 1). Here is the throw so far, I've used almost 5 of the 10 100gram balls.

A detail of the Shell stitch:

I'm planning to make a video on how to do this shell stitch, watch this space.
