For one reason or another (travel, sports, laziness, etc...) I have not yet blogged this year. Time to get to it because there's a lot of exciting knitting news going on.
First of all, I joined a Ravelry group called 10 Shawls in 2010. I figured it would be a good way to knit down my yarn stash a little and learn a lot more about lace knitting. I have completed one shawl thus far - so I'm on track! I used Wollmeise WD 80/20 in Der Letze Versuch to make the Traveling Woman shawlette. Here are the results:
The colors in the yarn are amazing - all different shades of purple. Here's a closer look.
Traveling Woman is a really easy lace pattern. It was very predictable and I enjoyed knitting it very much!
In other Ravelry-related news, I'm also knitting in The Unique Sheep's Enchanted Wood shawl KAL. I just finished the first clue this morning. Here it is in their Luxe yarn, custom-dyed for me by Kelly. The color is called Winter Sunset.
This yarn came in a set of six skeins in a gradient colorway which The Unique Sheep ladies call Gradience. My next skein will be mostly apricot with a little brown and lavender. Lovely!
...and because life isn't exciting enough, I'm also getting ready for the Ravelympics' events with Team Cindy....see?
I'm planning to work on finishing some WIPs - one in particular which I will not mention because I've mentioned it enough before.....really....enough said.
(many of the above hyperlinks access Ravelry pages. If you are not a Ravelry member will you not be able to see them....sorry. :( )
As you can see, 18 days into 2010, there's been lots of knitting going on. Here's hoping that holds true for the rest of the year!
