The Swallowtail Shawl (Interweave Knits - Fall 2006
) knitted in Handmaiden SeaSilk "Nova Scotia"
I did go up a couple of needle sizes purely to get a slightly larger shawl. I finished this at 4pm on Saturday - in time for going out to a wedding on the Saturday night.
I was working away at it during the Moto GP! Not the easiest to concentrate on at that point. Once finished I did pretty much press the f*ck out of it to get the lace to open up and then left it pinned out and drying on the bedroom floor until I was ready to go out. It went down well at the wedding - think I might have a few orders for a couple more!
And then last night I finished this rather cute little number - Rusted Root from Zephyr Style
in some Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece in New Age Teal
. I only used under 2 skeins for it so have one left over...got plans for that already. I fancy knitting another one in a different colour - it is just so cute! Me likey...
One may note that I am obviously adding another colour to the spectrum that is Maureen's wardrobe. Not only can I do reds, pinks, browns and oranges but I can do turquoise and green as well!
