With March having been such an unusually warm month, I haven't been too interested in holding wool in my hands or finishing projects designed for wearing in the cold.
A few cooler days has got me going again in earnest.
I finished a shawl for my mom.
She loved it. The pattern is 'Entwined' by Deby Lake. The yarn is Mushishi.
Also completed is this fun little scarf.
'LazyKaty', designed by Birgit Freyer is a quick fun knit made with Noro Kureyon sock yarn that had been in my stash for years.
I am thinking it might make the perfect accessory for a Cinco de Mayo party next month should there be one to go to.
In the works (still) are two projects from Rowan's Cocoon Collection.
A vest for myself
and a tunic for my daughter.
Lastly, I would like to recommend 'Finishing School' by Deborah Newton to all you knitters out there.
Such a wealth of information all in one place, with great overviews of the 'whys' of seaming or blocking one way or the other on specific types of projects or fibers. As a knitter for over forty years, I was quite surprised to learn so many new tricks. The shoulder seams on the cabled vest were giving me a bit of a challenge and I was certainly grateful I had the book handy.
Happy Fiber Arts Friday!
