WIP Wednesday

One more FO first:

Second Snow Day Hat

Slow but sure, I’m getting this particular lot of Noro Silk Garden Aran used up. It started life as the “Tula” Cardigan and unfortunately, I misplaced the notes for that one. Moving is such a pain! This one will have the matching fingerless gloves soon and then off to my shop with the Dream In Colour set.

Finishing a project is sometimes a letdown and so to allleviate my post-Hanging Garden Stole lace hangover, I cast on a shawl in my Hedgehog Fibres BFL Lace from last November’s Needler’s Retreat. The colourway is “Merlot” and it positively glows! I’m working the “Elizabeth” Shawl by Dee O’Keefe

and mine has been dubbed: Tipsy Lizzy Shawl :):

Halfway through another week already! I can’t believe we are almost at the end of February. Workplace moving preparations will be ramping up, hopefully with no service disruptions to the communities we serve. Knitting is saving my sanity as per usual πŸ™‚ Hope your week is going well. Cheers!

    • It is! I love lace in general but there is something so tactile, so satisfying to a fibre person in working with handspun. I take my hat off to those who can spin laceweight. Can’t wait to see your shawl πŸ™‚


      • I even love how handspun can be a little wonky. I spun this as a single, and it wasn’t quite laceweight, it ranged from light fingering to sport, but I love how that gives it really beautiful texture and that handmade feel πŸ™‚


      • That’s a part of the appeal for me too. You can see a human artisan in the spin. I’m itching to get back to working on this one, BFL lace has some of those qualities. Imprisoned at work though! 😦
