I was hoping to get back to the blog sooner but I've been so busy lately that some days I don't even turn on my computer. I'm out of town for a while now (more on that tomorrow, hopefully) so how about a drive-by FO post? I had a whole bunch of projects without FO photos on Ravelry, so last week I made a list, dragged my tripod out to my deck, and did my best to get some shots done. Here they are!
Belle Nuit by Sivia Harding
Yarn: Curious Creek Fibers Meru
Notes: This was the final installment of the Year of Lace club. I replaced the blue beads with ones that more closely matched the color of the yarn.
Daybreak by Stephen West
Yarn: Crystal Palace Mini Mochi and ONLine Linie 33 Cosmo
Notes: Large enough to be warm but soft enough to bundle around my neck.
Koukla by Hilary Smith Callis
Yarn: Aslan Trends Invernal
Notes: It still needs buttons, but it always takes me a while to get around to those. :-/ Love the finishing details (hems, pockets, folded down collar).
Laccaria by Norah Gaughan
Yarn: Rowan Wool Cotton
Notes: A simple knit with some interesting front details.
Striped Snowball Blanket by Sirdar
Yarn: Sirdar Baby Snowball
Notes: This yarn was an impulse purchase one day at work. It was quick and easy but kind of annoying to work with. The end result though is a blanket that feels like a cloud; super soft and snuggly...on one side. The other side is a web of nylon cording and not too pleasant. The ends were also a pain to finish because they had to be sewn down with a needle and thread.
Sweet Jazz by Samantha Roshak
Yarn: Ella Rae Lace Merino
Notes: Quick and easy lace shawlette. I really like the elongated crescent shape. It's easy to wear as a scarf or a shawlette.
