So much has happened since my last post that I would be here to years filling you in but I am happy to share a couple of photographs of recent projects and promise to post on a regular basis!
Temptress - a crescent shaped shawl and the Boo-Knits Mystery Valentine Shawl 2013
We all had so much fun knitting the shawls and working each clue. I think it is wonderful how these MKALs bring everyone together and creates online friendships that actually lead onto real, face-to-face friendships. The pattern was written for Lichtfaden Yarns and Sabine did an amazing job in creating the most wonderful colours on a variety of bases. The shawl above was in Lichtfaden Tussah Silk Lace - Memories of Hydrangeas and took just one skein. This tussah silk has a beautiful, almost crunchy, texture that was a total pleasure to work with.
Distant Hours - Designed for Amirisu and knit in DyeforYarn Tussah Silk Fingering. Knit from the top down in one piece it looks equally good with jeans as it does with an evening dress, has a stocking stitch body, a lace body transition section leads into a lace border and is finished off with a picot bind off. It takes less than 600m of fingering weight yarn and the Boo Group on Ravelry are due to start a KAL for this on 28th March 2013 - looking forward to that and now my biggest problem will be which yarn to use!
