Damson


FO: Damson (I think this is the pattern name. I know! Breaking the cardinal rule of knitblogging: knowing what the hell you're doing!)
Designer: Ysolda Teague (Whimsical Little Knits 2)
Yarn: Phildar Lambswool in Ardoise Colorway - 440 yards (ish)

OMG. I'll be the first to admit that the photo for this shawl is TERRIBLE! Cringe worthy! Dire! Not worth posting!

I know. BUT. I'm trying to build a record here of things I've done and I remembered at the last minute, after giving this shawl to a friend who has been AWESOME since baby Léna was born (lending me stuff but also taxiing my older daughter to synchro swimming and back), that I hadn't yet photographed it.

(and baby Léna was getting her scream on so I had to take a picture fast)

A lovely knit! The recipient swooned! It was quick to knit! Everybody wins!

Except you, dear reader. That pic is a hella bad. I'll do better next time.

Pinky swear.

FO: Nutkin socks


FO: Nutkin socks
Designer: dunno. Nutkin socks found on Knitzi.com
Yarn: Shibui yarn. 2 x 186 yards

Likes: Long walks on the beach, the cable look without actually doing cables.

Dislikes: People who use their cell phones as boomboxes in the streets, Short row heels.

OMG. I must have eaten a bowl of braindead the morning I started the heel. I just couldn't get my head around it. I looked all over the internet. Nothing made sense. So, my heels are... Odd.

When I got to the toe, I didn't even bother with a short row toe (cause I'm a chicken). No, I did a wedge toe.

Had a little trouble remembering how I did the first heel when I needed to do the second, but I think I hid my ignorance well.

I'm not sure if I'm keen on how the Shibui knit up. I really wasn't expecting spirally blocks of color.

Gotta go, my model is 'in a mood'.
