The last two weeks I got to enjoy some time off from a busy day job.
The husband and I got to sleep in, meet friends and new tiny friends (my best friend gave birth to her wonderful tiny little daughter), swim, go to markets and generally having a good time.
I had some time to work on some bigger projects and so I joined this wonderful mystery knit along initiated by Lee Meredith of Leethal Knits
I like her unusual and colourful style and I have a very soft spot for shawls, so with one week into the KAL I decided to join in.
The pattern is great - there is no gauge swatch required, it can be knit in various yarn sizes and comes in three sizes, you decide.
I got me some Grignasco Sport and spun a single as my contrasting colour, bought the pattern and went to work.
I won't spoil anything, so only a small piece of teaser for you here:
It's going to be warm and cozy and snuggly and I will make a second one in fingering weight.
But that has to wait, I'm currently working on two patterns myself, a neckwarmer and a scarf.
I don't have any picture of the scarf, a cabled affair in fingering weight (I like to torture myself with small-weight yarns, you know. I have a lace weight for a sweater around...), but I have a sneak preview of the neckwarmer:
I'm far from done - well, the piece in the photo is almost done, but there will be at least one other version of it. Possibly two.
The scarf pattern will take a while longer to finishe ;-)
One of the reasons is that I really would love to spin this:
It's going to be for another version of the junction shawl. I'm still contemplating the main colour, so if you have any idea please feel free to share.
