In which I add a sidenote

As an addendum to yesterday's post, Isn't it nice when gifts work out brilliantly?


What do we think, peoples? Did I make the right colour choice here or what?

In which I am now out of things to knit

Well, here's another knit!
Bird's Nest Smoke Ring by Shui Kuen Kozinski out of Shibui Sock.




Knit to pattern, super quick (like... 4 days knitting time), and pretty fun.
Gifted and quite well received.

Well, now that it has been received, I can share photos.


It's a slightly modified Springtime Bandit. Yarn is Berroco Ultra Alpaca (with the insets done in Cascade 220).


Intarsia is a pain in the rear, but I think it was worth it.





I've got another finished knit to share, too. Once it gets gifted.

In which we buy more yarn

So the mysteryish knit is now in the post. It's been photographed buuuuuuuut I can't share those yet.

Instead, can I entice you with a photo of today's yarn acquisition? It's another pre-planned gift knit (so unlike me, I know!), and I am just in crazy love with the slate blue colour - I think it matches someone's eyes quite well. More info on the particular project at a future date.

Cheers lovely peoples.

in which we commence phase 2

Well, next up is blocking and shipping. That was a 6-day knit, people. 6 days. For ME.

In which I nearly lap myself

So after three evenings work, the current mystery project is into the final phase of knitting! When I say it's zipping along, I am not exaggerating!


I am making a few modifications to the pattern - making it a bit larger with an added repeat and also... well I'll see if you can figure it out from the photos - if not, you'll have to wait for the reveal. Oh, and it's secretive because the recipient checks in here at least on occasion. I'm enjoying the knit too much to keep quiet though. And I am just reveling in the sculptural nature of it pre-blocking (wrong side only pictured).
