Melissa has been helping me catch up on some of my finished pieces that hadn’t been photographed off the blocking boards.
First the cropped eyelet cardi that I test knit for The Andi Pants. For this picture, Melissa said “Pretend you’re playing castenets!” That’s Maggie down at my feet helping.
And here I am with Mortimer (aka Scaredy Cat) who officially lives around the corner and over the fence, but who likes to join our knitting afternoons.
Here’s Victorine, which Bob was helping to block recently. The yarn is Henry’s Attic Alpaca Marl.
And detail. One great aspect of this shawl it that it’s knit from the point up, so it works with pretty much any amount/gauge of yarn.
An Ulmus that I knit for Melissa out of Malabrigo Sock and Berocco Ultra Alpaca.
And two detail shotsâ€”the slipped stitch pattern makes this shawl extra bouncy and mixes the colors wonderfully.
Finally, here’s Skuld. I loved this knit. I’m loving the second knit in the Norns seriesâ€”and I’ve already signed up for the fall three-pattern subscription which will be for shawls inspired by world heritage sites.
We are off now for a camping > Shakespeare festival > beach retreat vacation. I took great care to bring plenty of yarns and patterns, but I’m already finding out that the yarn I’ve brought isn’t necessarily suitable for the pattern I chose. Oh well, maybe I’ll have to bu some more.
