Thursday night, sometime in the wee hours:
The start of a simple stockinette-and-garter stitch shawl, inspired by Adrian’s. I think after I took this photo I ripped this piece and started over with a bigger needle…
Friday night, 11 pm, after knitting at work (until I ran out of the skein I’d brought) and while chatting on the phone – all done!
Another demonstration of the magic of blocking!
Pattern: my own, simple shawl shape with garter and stockinette bands – if y’all really want a pattern, I can write it up
Yarn: my own handspun merino/tussah silk, a bit less than 8 oz
Needles: denise US11
Start/Finish: January 6, 2006
Ah. Nice fast, simple project. This was one of my first yarns spun on my wheel, back when I got it (June). It’s a lovely burgundy merino/silk blend from Louet, and although I overspun it, the yarn is soft and shiny.
In something slightly different – check out this yarn Jill and I did up last Monday at my place – it’s for her, and I think my most successful dyeing yet!
LOVE IT. I’ll have to try and recreate it for myself!
