I have 2 projects to show off this week *grins* I would usually save one for next week, in case I don't have anything to post then, but I love both of these and they deserve some limelight right away ;)
First up, proper pictures of my Stripe Study Shawl:
I love this shawl, it is so gorgeous *grins* I'm really pleased with it. I wasn't entirely sure how it would sit, being asymmetrical, but it works perfectly. Having one side longer than the other means that it goes around my shoulders and stays there - much more than a regular triangle shawl
The second picture is slightly weird, colour-wise, because I was trying to capture the actual green of the yarn. Not very well! This is what it actually looks like:
Yarn: Wollmeise 80-20 in Im der Jahre den Ratte (grey) and 100% in Minze (green)
Pattern: Stripe Study Shawl
Modifications: None - and I had enough yarn to do all 12 stripes.
My second FO for this week is my Super Awesome Happy Rainbow Socks:
They're so awesome *big grin*
Because I have small feet, and knit them toe up, I was able to get almost knee high socks. I used every scrap of yarn and managed to match them too.
And now I'm posting lots of pictures because these are the happiest socks in the world *laughs*
Yarn: 2 balls Knit Picks Felici in Rainbow (thanks to a kindly blogger sourcing the yarn and sending it to me - Alex, these socks are thanks to you!)
Pattern: generic toe up with short row heel
I'm wearing them right now and bouncing around because... I'm walking on rainbows (and I apologise to everyone who is now singing that to the tune of "walking on sunshine" *laughs*)
It's Friday, so you know what to do... Visit Tami's, Natural Suburbia and Wisdom Begins in Wonder. Have a great weekend :)
