Would you like a peek at what I've been working on recently? As usual I have a few knitting projects on the needles, as well as assorted swatches for trying out new ideas.
I have a bit of an obsession with speckled yarn at the moment. This shawl is a new design, in speckle-dyed BFL Sock yarn from Skein
- the colour is called 'Neon + Grey'. I've finished the knitting, but haven't blocked it yet as I'm quite enjoying the unblocked texture:
|These ribs will turn into lace when blocked|
|The edging, with alternating texture 'stripes'|
|The wrong side looks pretty mad. :)|
This silvery scarf is another design in progress, in Outlaw Yarn's Bohemia Worsted
- it's a pleasure to knit with something so soft! I'm about halfway through this one...
|Texture and softness|
And this is the beginning of a cardie I'm making for myself, in various 8ply yarns including Morris Norway 8ply in natural shades and Vintage Purls Max in shades of gold and burgundy. The pattern is Stephen West's Royally Striped
. It should be super cosy! Hopefully I can finish it before spring.
