It is that time of year where the MiniShawl craze begins! I blocked
Tiffany's Color Affection Scarf today. Most people made a full size
glorious shawl, but she wanted something more scarflike, and I agreed
with her. Making shawls is fun, but wearing them can prove to be
Color A - white - Cascade Alpaca Lace
Color B - gray - Cascade Alpaca Lace
Color C - fuscia - Classice Elite Silky Alpaca Lace
For lace yarn, the Cascade was very splitty.
Needles - Size 2
As I mentioned last week, this was a very fun knit, and I would
love to make another one someday.
I also started the Through the Loops Mystery shawl. As with
her mystery socks, I'm not that enthralled. I am hoping the next
clue is better. We are currently on Clue 2. I am using
Malabrigo Lace yarn, in denim blue, which is the only thing right
now making this project worth it. I am continuing because I
think it's good to make some things different and step it up a little.
And, the funny part for me is, when she sells designs on her web
site, I always like them, so I am at a loss why her mystery designs
are so far off from the regular.....oh well! No one is forcing me to
Ruth, Martha and I all signed up for WendyKnits Summer Solstice
Mystery Shawl. First clue to come out June 20th. I know I am
going to love her pattern...I always like her designs.
I am also plugging along on Betty's socks. I am cruising down the
foot. Well cruising is not really a good word. I am working on them
when I need something brainless.
All three therapists told me not to knit to much. How much is too
much? I think on the weekends I've been doing too much, but during
the week I don't knit much at all......
Ruth is currently working on a Baby Surprise Jacket....in sock yarn.
She switched yarn since last week. She decided the yarn was too
nice to have it spit up on ! LOLOLOL...I agree!
Martha is working on some really cools socks, but I don't have pictures
I love knitting in the summer - even as much as in the winter...how about you?
