Right, so finishing up the April Finished Object Round-Up:
Finishing up my knitting for Sylvia, I knit a Wast Side Shawl. The pattern is by Gudrun Johnston, and is knit from the edging up, which I for some reason find feels more laborious than knitting top down, even though both types of shawls generally take the same amount of time. I really like the result and would be willing to knit myself one at some point in the future.
I also knit Jared Flood’s Wool Leaves. I had always wanted to knit my daughter a proper baby blanket, but I really didn’t have the skill when I was pregnant with her, so it was fun to do one now. It’s also really satisfying to knit a worsted-yarn-held-doubled on giant needles project.
Next up, May WIPs, really this time. Only problem is that I have five or six, so yes, that’s like a whole other post.
