I worked on my Fledermaus socks just last Sunday as that is the day I give over to some selfish knitting time. I love how these cables are forming and twisting and turning and although not much progress has been made these are just more about enjoying the knitting time.
Simone from Owl Cat Designs is having an Instagram KAL of her wedding shawl pattern. It is a gorgeous stripe and lace shawl and I took a stash dive yesterday to see what if any yarns I had were suitable for it to join in. I found these gorgeous cream and green silk and mohair that I’m going to use on the stripe section and on the lace sections I might use this sagey green sea silk, but if I don’t like that I do have a cream silk that I can put in place with that. Simone is releasing the pattern in parts and today I’m going to catch up with parts 1 and 2.
I have a few project pages I need to make up, one for this shawl I’m starting, one for a new design that’s off the needles (it needs blocking!) and one for Gaineamh which I’ve started and is drafted and heading to my tech editor this week. That is the second wrap in the Summer Memories Collection. I’m way behind on my project pages, I’ll have to eek out time this week to get that done.
