Later posting than usual this week, as I was up partying until the wee small hours last night! It's a post worth waiting for though, as I have not just one, but two FOs to share.
$5 in San Francisco is finished! Full notes on the mods I made to the pattern are on my Ravelry project page. I have to say, I am so pleased with this project. It's my first ever jumper and it was so easy to knit. I enjoyed it so much, in fact, that I am already planning my second one. And I'm so much in love with the finished jumper itself, I've been wearing it all weekend.
The yarn is Cascade 220 which I bought from Imagiknit when I was in San Francisco on my honeymoon earlier in the year. It was a birthday present to myself. I have enough left over to make some gloves (in the light blue) and perhaps a hat from the remaining dark blue.
My other finish? Flash of Light. I started the Dragonfly Wings shawl back at the end of June, as part of the Crafts from the Cwtch Pick a Boo KAL. The KAL ran till the end of August, but it was the end of September before I finally cast off, as I let myself get put off by the border. I needn't have worried about it, as once I got down to it, it was really simple and I flew through it really quickly!
|Blocking is more successful when cats are involved.|
I managed to get it on the blocking boards this weekend, after it sat in my basket for two months! I haven't yet had a chance to take photos of the final, finished piece yet, but it is off the boards, the ends have been woven in and it looks amazing.
