Right, so now I’ve waited so long to post my May WIPs that I now have May finished objects, so first up is my most recently finished project, Little Leaves by Susanna IC. It was a quite a charming project, and fast, even with the beading. It was knit in JulieSpins 420S in Muir Woods; gorgeous browns are one of Julie’s specialities.
Finally, as promised, some WIP photos. Right now I’m working on what I’m calling the Two Dragons, which are actually two large shawls, Nefertiti and Branigan. I hope to have both of them complete by the end of the month. Nefertiti Wrap is by Miriam L. Felton and is knit in Madelinetosh tosh lace in Thunderstorm.
Brangian is by Bronwyn Parry and is in The Plucky Knitter Merino Wool Handpainted Lace Weight in Spectacle, with Amethyst beads.
I have another pair of shawls I’m knitting, which are also related in their own way. I’m knitting Olatz out of Madelinetosh Pastoral (discontinued) in Nocturne and Cosette in Malabrigo Worsted in Polar Morn, which will use the Pastoral for edging. The Olatz is almost complete, but I would like to put in one more repeat if I can, so I decided to go ahead and knit Cosette and see how much yarn I have leftover after I edge it.
I think that’s a pretty good tour of what I’ve been up to so far this month, and next time hopefully, there will be more finished work!
