Weekend WIPs

The GILs shawl is growing! The 4ply bamboo cotton is beautiful to work with but it takes ages as it's so delicate.

I've also started the Amigurumi craftsy course and the first task, a simple bluebird, is coming together: wings and beak compete, body half done. 

Lastly I've been challenged by a friend to create a cowl like that worn by Katniss in the second Hunger Games film. Lion Brand Yarns have a pattern which I'm adapting but using the same wool: Wool-Ease Think & Quick in Grey Marble. 

I'm not sure it's quite right yet so it may get frogged and started again, but as the wool is so chunky it works up quickly.
