Hey! I finally have a Finished Object to report. . . I know, miracles of miracles! I finished and blocked the Spring Blossoms Shawl, and here she is!
It was pretty hard to get her blocked out, and I probably could have made her stretch a bit bigger, but I was having difficulties with the kitties wanting to play with the wires and I figured 42″ square is ok, for a lap throw – at least I hope it is!! It was an ok knit, meaning, that if I didn’t have a constant feeling that I was behind in knitting it, I think I would have enjoyed it more. The yarn was Cherry Tree Hill Supersock, and it was actually pretty knotty – the last skein had four knots – that sucks with lace!
Of course one of the knots was in the crochet bind off, so, I can only pray I got that woven in well enough that it won’t unravel!!
After all that fun, I went back to playing with Kirsten – this is the most awesome wheel, I just can’t tell you . . . Please visit Kirsten’s Page on this blog – I have posted some pretty pictures!
She is a true joy to spin on, but, I am also playing the Ravelry Olympics, so, I have to set her to the side to work on something fun for a change. Yes, it’s socks! I am trying something new, using Personal Footprints for Insouciant Sock Knitters, by Cat Bordhi, In Socks that Rocks Valentino medium weight:
I hope this will be a pair of Woodpecker Ridges when I am done! Don’t you just love that color??
