Joining in a Knitalong

My first where I'm certain I'll finish and very excited!

One of my favourite blogs is Crafts from the Cwtch - Sarah is such an inspiration, and makes some utterly beautiful and scrummy work.  Her latest knitalong is anything from Booknits on Ravelry.  I have just started knitting the very pretty Dragonfly Wings, and this is perfect timing and inspiration for me to keep going - this is very definitely a little bit of self indulgence for me, a beautiful shawl in gorgeous touchable, strokeable yarn.  I have had some beautiful A Stash Addict yarn in my stash for quite a while now and looking for the perfect project for it and this is most definitely it.  Here it is so far - hopefully you can see that this is one of the sparkly yarns - SQUEEEEEE!

How did it get to June! I'm frantically craft fairying for my favourite forum at the moment, so I can't share what I'm doing for that, although I am proud to say I have completed and am currently wearing my first pair of sock weight yarn socks.  I love them! They are the Hermione everyday socks, available on Ravelry

Can you spot the mistake though?
I'm working on starting up a new blog, which is really my sound off board.  I'll link to it hear when its ready, but it basically is my private musings on ME and its implications and impact on my life.  I'm hoping it can also be a place others can share their experiences of hidden illnesses, and that it may provide some much needed support for others.
