Still in a heat wave (go away summer!), but I’ll be well prepared for the cooler weather.
Knitter’s first shawl!
I’ll admit it, I loathe purling, so the thought of 300+ stitches and purling back every other row on a shawl was just.not.happening.
However, I found a garter stitch shawl! Milkweed by Laura Chau, who is one of my favorite designers atm.
I had been given some Great Aidirondack Sirino (50% silk, 50% merino, fingering weight) as a gift (gorgeous), and the match of pattern and yarn was wonderful. I’ll admit to loving the entire process, the knitting, the blocking, the shawl. 😀
A woven scarf:
First time using my 12dpi reed, which meant I could use fingering weight yarn.
I pulled a skein of Handmaiden silk twist (used as warp) and patons kroy sock (as weft)
The scarf isn’t perfect, its edges are very inconsistent, but it is lovely nonetheless.
I’ll leave this post with a picture I took a couple of days ago
