Happy Wednesday everyone!
I have mentioned in my yearly goals that I would like to design more this year, and I’ve really been enjoying designing amigurumi so far. I have had an idea for a knitted shawl in my head since last week though, and so I’ve started on it using some super soft possum/merino/silk yarn I bought while in New-Zealand. The yarn is Zealana Kauri and it’s just amazing. I’ve been using my new interchangeable needles from Knitpro too, and I have to say that they are great, the transition from cable to needle is just so smooth. Anyway, the shawl is in three colours and I am doing a simple lace pattern with the green/mustardy colour.
I really love the overall effect, I’m hoping to have this finished by next week and I’m hoping that the blocking really makes the lace stand out 🙂 I think it’s pretty good for my first ‘freestyle’ knitting project.
Have you ever designed a project on a whim? I’d love to know!
