A Feast Of Finished Finds
I have been focusing on finishing started projects, and the results are starting to show!
Here is the latest prayer shawl I finished:
It was done with 4 skeins of Knit Picks Suri Dream (Blueberry) on size #10 needles using a fun three stitch repeat. After casting on 69 stitches, each row consisted of *K, YO, K2tog. Repeat from * until your yarn runs out. Very rhythmic and meditative (once I got into the pattern), but rather slow with this yarn because I had a hard time seeing the two stitches to knit together. Lighter colored needles helped a lot (thanks Pam!). Here's a close up of the pattern made by the three stitch repeat:
Also in the "stick me I'm done" category is the Fire Tire. With its lumpy decreases, I didn't think it was going to wearable. It was knitted on #2 dpns with Sock Something from Knit Picks in Zinnia. Here it is before blocking:
After full-immersion, I stretched its stripey loudness out on the plaid ironing board (My eyes! My eyes!) and pinned it into submission:
After drying and releasing it, here it is on the only willing model I could find:
A couple of more projects are getting wrapped up (pun intended!) and I can't wait to share them. Let's just hope that Blogger will cooperate!
