I have multiple finished objects to show off today *grins* This is very exciting news after being stuck on one project for so long! So, lots of photos coming up...
First up, my cabled bag. I finished this on Saturday but haven't managed to find the right bag handles yet. I do love the lining though *smiles*
The yarn was the Brooklyn Tweed Shelter I won from a blog giveaway. It's beautifully springy, but a little rougher than I'm used to working with. Great stitch definition though.
Secondly, last night I finished sock number 1 of the Zauberball socks *big grin* I love this sock. I was wearing it last night for a little while, before being good and taking it off (to avoid wearing it out before it even has a mate!) The colours are so bright, and even though I usually avoid taking pictures in direct sunlight, I couldn't resist showing off just how much this sock glows!
And last, but by absolutely no means least, the final beauty shots of the Clapotis...
It's a little shorter than I initially wanted, however I've changed my mind about this being a bad thing - it sits really nicely on my shoulders at a good arm length. Of course, I made it for an event last Sunday (as you know) and it turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far! Luckily, it wasn't too hot in the shade, and it actually formed an excellent protective barrier against all the bitey flies that were hanging around ;)
I also love it worn like this, although I could do with a shawl pin to keep it in place...
Because it scrunches up quite small, thanks to the drop stitches, I can also wear it as a scarf, but I'm not quite sure that does it justice. I love how the next 2 shots really show off the magic of blocking, look how straight and flat it is now!
As you might be able to tell, I'm pretty damn pleased with this thing:
As ever, head over to the other Friday link parties for more crafty goodness: Tami's, Natural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder
