So I have been on a ruffle binge as of late it seems. This scarf was knit out of premier yarns starbella flash. Of the two ruffle yarns I have used so far, I prefer the bernat ruffelina. I still have one more ball of flash left so I will be making one more ruffled scarf. Right now though I am working on wanderlust from the new winter knitty.
Behold the completed afghan with my queen sized bed for scale. This used 10 skeins of lionbrand homespun yarn in 5 colors. Thanks to an awesome Thanksgiving day sale the thing only cost me 15 dollars to make!
There's been a lot going on since I last blogged. I have been knitting up a storm and managed to finish up some projects that have been on the needles for a while.
The reason I have gotten so much done is sad though. On Saturday, my grandmother lost a long fight with pneumonia. She passed away peacefully and I am thankful for that.
So this week I am with my parents getting ready for the funeral. While here, I have been knitting a pair of Christmas stockings. Here is the first one.
The opening night of the Olympics led to the back spiral being knit on the In the Pink shawl. Here is what was completed day 1:
I have now knit way past this and have completed the two side wings, the triangles that connect the wings to the center, and am now on the border that is knit around the length of the shawl before beginning the edging. One thing I have noticed now is that the shawl looks like a giant blob and is not photogenic. Probably will not post much the rest of the week given the crappy shots I will be getting, but I will post once I get some edging done and can take a better picture of the shawl as a whole.
Over all, it's an interesting knit and a very odd construction. I am enjoying working on the shawl though and I find that I am not losing interest in it. I say that now, but the edging is coming :oP
