Unpacked – BubbleWrap

As mentioned, the modelled photos. M’amselle loves her new look:

Pattern notes can be found on my Ravelry here: BW Wrap

O!

I wrapped up a prototype knit for a new design last night. Doubly happy as I’d picked up the custom colours that I ordered from Yvonne at Yvieknits Yarns for the cover of the pattern when it’s published.

The working title is ‘The BW Wrap‘ and once it’s back from tech editing, etc. I’ll share more details. For now here’s a peek at the FO and the luscious Merino Silk Fingering that it will be test knit in. I chose ‘Faery Looking Glass’ for the very subtle variegated and a custom tone of Yvonne’s popular ‘Pewter’. I’m trying to convince her to make it a regular colour and call it ‘Reflection’ or similar 🙂

FO Friday Again :)

Venetian” was a spur-of-the-moment idea. I unpacked a box of yarn to inventory on Ravelry and rediscovered some Fleece Artist Somoko. This is another design that incorporates both knitting and crochet and I decided on a stole, in order to use up both skeins.

Whack ‘O Wollmeise

The Wollmeise has got to go. Details provided at the Ravely links beneath each photo.

Four skeins, including a 2007 club colour “Fratello”. $30.00US each. These are not marked up, they are the price I paid, as are any skeins in my “Stash for Sale”.

On my Ravelry, I offer to pay 1/2 of the calculated shipping cost for any three skeins purchased at one time. I will pay the full cost for shipping if one crazy person buys all four skeins at once to USA or CDN addresses (e-transfer preferred or Paypal)

Finished Fan-Dango

One more project finished this week – my Turquoise Fan-Dango, worked from Annette Petavy’s “Buttercream Shawl”.

Worked at a larger tension and with a tiny mod, here are the finished (unblocked) photos:

 

Saturday Synopsis

The week brought a little of this, a little of that, much knitting and pencil chewing over a new design. I planned a little for my first vending event and did a tiny bit of shopping and finished two books.

Here’s a little gathering of “the things”:

Hoping your week was happy and productive and wishing you a great weekend 🙂

Cheers all!
