Yes, I know it’s been quite a while since I posted, but there has been knitting. There has also been updating in Ravelry which is fun! Mostly I’ve been doing small things (since they’re quicker), but here’s what’s happened:
Blocked & gifted the random fiber swallowtail shawl. The fiber (and I only used 1/3 or so) came from a co-worker who unraveled a project & washed & balled up the yarn for me. I made this as a surprise for her.
Finally attached the handles to my long-completed Everlasting Bagstopper bag.
Another similar bag in white still needs handles but was cast off last weekend.
Current project: a scarf version of Eunny Jang’s Print O’ The Wave Stole. As with my Lily of the Valley scarf, I’m modifying the pattern to make a scarf instead of a stole (I’ve only got 1 skein of Periwinkle Sea Silk). I’m planning to do the wave border (18 st. wide) and so I’m only doing a 32 st. body. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll try out a couple repeats of the border to see what yardage it takes and do a little math to figure out how long this can be.
I may also add some beads around the edge of this since I really like the feel of them on the Lily of the Valley scarf. TBD.
