Anaea and Blackwood Shawls Finished


They aren’t blocked but I don’t count that. I’m a Process Knitter.

Finished, not blocked

I did a mod in the last row of the border. Very happy with it.

And here is Anaea. This took just three days to complete! I did have three days off last week, so was able to work at it the way I wish I could with all the things I’d rather be doing. Again, not blocked. This one will benefit from that, the Blackwood with its heavy silk content, drapes in a way that the stitches are quite open without. This one  though will need a Soak bath and to have the T-pin treatment.

 Awaiting A Blocking.

And a little Yarn Pr0n to show. My March Three Irish Girls Sock Yarnista selections arrived Friday. Maui and Cabo on the Springvale sock base. Springvale is a fingering / 4 ply, 100% Merino. I love that it has a nice, tight twist – gives lots of “spring” and great stitch definition and yet is still soft. Sad though, Sharon announced that this will be the last of her wonderful clubs. I’ll miss the exclusives but very glad that her yarns will still be available at some online stores.

The last of this club from Three Irish Girls.
