A little tour through my finished knittingThis is to distract you from the fact that I've got far too many unfinished projects going...
This is the Lucy Neatby Faroese Flower Shawl I made last year. The yarn is Palette from Knit Picks.
And here's the back:
This is a sweet, ruffly shawl I made from some handspun (I think?) alpaca I bought years ago at a NoSo Knits function in Roanoke. I can't remember who did the pattern right now, and I'm not at home so I can't look. Sorry.
And this is one of my favorite things--a stole made from rayon seed yarn that's a gorgeous combination of candy apple red and cotton candy pink. Sigh. I splurged and spent a birthday gift certificate on a huge hank of it and then spent months and months deliberating over what to make. It all came down to finding something that would show how beautiful the yarn is. The problem? I haven't worn it because it doesn't actually keep me warm and I don't dress up very often...I guess now I need to shop to find "the" outfit to go with my fancy stole!
Isn't it great? I just love that yarn! Here's a close-up:
Isn't it beautiful? Or are you someone who thinks pink and red clash, no matter what? I have a friend like that, so every time I see pink and red together, I think of her and giggle.
