I haven’t been knitting a lot lately since sewing is taking lots of my time! But I managed to finish 2 projects yesterday 🙂
This one is mine, and all mine lol!
I did 7 repeats before doing the border chart (so 7 big holes in the middle) and was left with about 100 yards of lace yarn.
Still amazed on how blocking shawls make them turn from ducks into swans 🙂
Second, some fingerless mitts I had started about 2 years ago that had only one thumb left to knit… I know, talk about loosing interest into something!
Yarn is reclaimed from a sweater (wool with just a bit of cotton), and pattern is the popular Fetching by Cheryl Niamath.
Just say I’m glad they are done!
Today is the cast on day for a cool Knit Along (KAL) with Luvinthemommyhood group on Ravelry!! you just need to start a project that reminds you of Downton Abbey! How cool is that??! And Shannon over at luvingthemommyhood (love her blog!) will be giving nice prizes along with that! She even put up a pinterest board to get you inspire! You need to register for this KAL.
I was suppose to do another Gail shawl for my dear friend Kim but I asked her if I could change pattern since I wasn’t going to do another one just yet 😉 she gave me a bunch to choose from and I settled for the Ethereal shawl! isn’t it beautiful?! I’ll use some knitpicks shadow (with…. beads! of course!) for it.
Love casting on!!
J’ai terminé 2 projets de tricot hier! youpi! Premièrement le châle que j’avais commencé cet été! Il est superbe! J’aime beaucoup l’effet avec les perles 🙂 et deuxièmement, des mitaines sans doigts qui étaient en attente d’un pouce depuis 2 ans…
