This week I’ve made progress on my Forest Moon of Endor socks, the first sock is now at the heel. These like my shawl are weekend projects that I seem to only touch then. I tend to keep during the week for design work. I’m really liking the long colour repeats on this Zauberball and the pattern is not completely lost. I won’t say I’m in too much favour of knitting with black, it is such a hard colour to knit with but I do love the effect so I guess it was worth it. I’m also really liking how much more open the lace is than I thought it would be.
I worked last Sunday on just my Streusel shawl. I love this pattern, it is open and lacy and yet makes a great tv project. I really love this skein of Sea Silk I’m using as well and I’m looking forward to this completed shawl.
So with those being the weekend projects during the week I’ve been working on my next design. I can show you this now because I ripped this out and started again because I just wasn’t completely happy with it and that is just not good enough. What I can tell you is this design is called Fíorghrá (fear-graw) which means true love in Irish and lace and beads are featured heavily. I have re-started it and I am much happier with the design now.
