I finished my shawlette over the weekend and love how it turned out. I’m waiting patiently for my hubby to take a photo but meantime, here’s a photo of my “Black Pearl” blocking. I enjoyed knitting Amy’s pattern Asking for Roses and loved Lorna’s Laces – wonderful yarn to knit with!
I’m a bit behind on one of my KALs. I’ve been participating in Simone’s Sand and Sky Creations Raverly Group and started a pair of Maritime Wool Socks back in October. Originally this pair of socks was destined for my hubby but I’ve decided to give them to my Dad. I finished sock#1 last night and now working on sock#2. I have lots of motivation to finish due to the fact my Dad’s birthday is only two weeks away!
I want to give a quick shout out for my fiber friend Meghan Jackson of Meghan Jackson Knits. Meghan has a lovely design in the winter issue of Twist Collective called Verve . This design can be created as a scarf or as a shawl, which is perfect for a versatile accessory piece.
The facts: This design is created in one piece from the neck down, provides both written and charted instructions, and is perfect for an intermediate to advanced knitter.
The materials: If making the scarf version, this project will require one skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Marine Silk Sport, 324 yards (296 m) per skein or any sport weight yarn to match gauge, and a Size 6 US (4.0 mm) circular needle that is 32″ (80 cm) long or longer.
If making the shawl, this project will require two skeins Blue Moon Fiber Arts Marine Silk Fingering, 487 yards (445 m) per skein or any fingering weight to match gauge, and a Size 4 US (3.5 mm) circular needle that is 32″ (80 cm) long or longer.
Until next time, happy knitting, crocheting, spinning and crafting!
