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!
I hope you guys are all ready for the new week, I certainly am! I have finished my Age of Brass and Steam (or Sapphire) shawl, using the beautiful yarn I got gifted by Tracy 😍
I just absolutely love the colours, it didn’t pool at all and just turned out so pretty! I really like wearing it as a scarf, it sits nice and cosy around my neck and the yarn is really so soft 😊
It’s good that I have finished this, as I’m planning to knit a jumper next! That should keep me plenty busy over the move, when I don’t have access to all my normal material.
Have a great week ❤️
I’ve been mentioning that I started a new shawl last weekend, and I’ve been loving it! Did I mention that it is my first knitted shawl ever? I’m using a free pattern from Orange Flower Yarn called the Age of Brass and Steam. I really like how simple, yet effective, the pattern is!
And I am using the beautiful yarn that Tracy gifted me, in the Sapphire colour way, hence the name I’ve given to my shawl! I was pretty pleased to find this ‘1 ball of dk’ shawl pattern. I was a bit scared at first about not having enough yarn but now that I’ve started it, I think it will be just perfect!
I hope you’ve been having a productive week too!
