progress

I'm getting there with the shell:-)















I've got two more projects lined up. I want to do Audrey from Sophisticated Lady by Elsebeth Lavold and I bought some Knit Picks shine sport in Apricot for the Shetland Shawl Turned Vest by Veronique Avery from Lace Style. It was the straps that got me. I love details and this piece had the details. I'm already dreaming of the perfect two buttons for the back and I don't even have the yarn yet! I'm also lusting after the Katherine Hepburn Cardi from the same book and Knit Picks Shine sport works for that too but I want to knit a piece with it first before I invest in the time it will take for the Katherine Hepburn Cardi. On Rosie is some merino cross in a perfect for me red from a local dyer at Winterhaven farms. Very nice stuff. (the color is closer to the darker red than the washed out one)I'm spinning it bulky. After that laceweight I needed to switch up!
Speaking of lace weight. I decided to try my hand at Eunny Jang's Print 'o the Wave shawl.

Eye candy! The shell looks great, and what are you knitting the shawl with? The colours are very pretty.

Beautiful knitting, Elizabeth. The Lavold designs are just so distinctive!
It is so much fun to see how far you made that little bump of silk/merino go. Isn't it lovely to spin? I do like the fact that you are changing up your grist this time, that way you won't get stuck in just one groove, so to speak. :o)

I love the cabling on the shell. The color is lovely...I can just see it on you! Ah, to be a long drink of water again!!
Buttons...did you say buttons? May I be of assistance?
The red is popping!
Lisa's yarn is perfect in your shawl...yummy all around.
