I have two finished objects to share today which is pretty remarkable, given my inability to focus on projects lately.
The first FO is a large shawl I made for a coworker who wears lots of clothing on this color palette and loves scarves.
The pattern is a free one, Campside by Alicia Plummer. It starts with a stockinette section that’s followed by four sets of eyelet sections, each with fewer stitches between the eyelets than the previous section. It ends with ribbing which I really like the look of on a simple shawl. I blocked it gently and it still wound up huge, 56″ across and 25″ tall. My poor coworker can get eaten by the thing!
I could not get my phone to take a picture accurately of the color, which is a heathery purple with lots of red in it. Regardless, I really love how it turned out and will certainly be making something using this pattern again.
The second FO is a pair of socks in a pattern I’ve not used before, Vestigial by Beata Jezek. While it’s a simple enough pattern to memorize, I did mess up a few times. I did them toe-up with a short row heel as I didn’t want to have to do any complicated counting.
As usual, these took a month to knit because I got bored after the first sock. Maybe I should have two pairs of socks in rotation?
I’ll be back on Sunday with a review of the week which will have some other knitting content.
