This week I’ve gotten some finishes in.
First up Eole for Evelyn. It was blocked last Sunday, it got it’s threads finished and yesterday I made it to the LYS shop yesterday and picked up some buttons some lovely sparkly ones. Here are a few roughly taken pictures. I’ll do a FO post this week with some better shots taken.
I have tried it on quickly and it’s a gorgeous fit and size on Evelyn.
I have also just finished the Rainbow Corners Blanket but again need to take pictures of that, I will also be doing a FO post for that.
I’ve been giving this a bobble edge (tutorial for which came from ayarnyrobin blog) as well to tie it into the same theme as the first as these blankets all three are going to some very special little triplets who have just arrived so I need to move myself along with the third blanket.
Speaking of the third blanket, I will be starting it off today once I decide on what kind of pattern to do. Any ideas for a third rainbow themed blanket?
Having finished Eole for Evelyn I made a start on Elizabeth’s cardigan for the Winter. Again I chose a pattern by Nadia Cretin Lechenne, Eole was a pattern from her as well, this time I chose the pattern Miss Marple . Elizabeth chose this colour yarn for her cardigan and we have the buttons already picked out, she came with me to the LYS shop yesterday so we are a step ahead this time. I’m also giving continental knitting a go with this project, I hope by the end of the project I’ll have gotten used to it.
Design wise I’ve some sneak pictures of Ériu the shawl,
and the provisional cast on for Equinox Stone, this project I’m designing has what I’m terming some Neoknitic, I’m looking forward to showing you all that.
While at the hairdressers this week I did also start the third cloth in the Vintage Strawberry Ruffle Cloth set, I didn’t take a picture of that but will this coming week.
So there you have it, the progress made this week. Project being worked on this coming week will be the third rainbow blanket once a pattern is decided on, Miss Marple and both designs.
