... and here they are
First up, the Noveau Shawl that became a scarf. I tried to arrange it so that you can see the design clearly. I know that when I wear it, the lacey pattern may not show so clearly, but I am still quite pleased with it.
Next up is a picture of the feather and fan scarf that I completed but have decided is not quite 'me'. I used thick 100% mohair yarn and 8mm needles. The 'normal' feather and fan stitch has a garter ridge. I eliminated that ridge and instead creeated a few ridges between every few repeats of the pattern.
I also took a picture of the sleeve I was working on. This is the yarn that I have realised I don't have enough of. It is working out quite well. I like the sleeves. i was thinking that perhaps I can knit the body f the jumper in black. What do you think?
Last, but not least, the baby hat I was working on. I guess there is no reason why this has to be a baby sized hat.. as the pattern can easily be modified to fit ana adult's head. I decided to try out some of that yarn that I spun myself. If you click on the picture, you will see the same hat against a different background. I am not sure which background shows off the colours more clearly and accurately.
I spent much of today at Chris' parents. I cooked lunch, which was medicre at bext. The roast beef was overdone. The pork was quite nce, though. The potato bake was a hit, as always. I am not sure I will bother roasting vegetable for them in the future. I don't think they like vegetables much. Oh well.
Ginny was kind enough to show me how to paint my nails "french polish" style. Here.. see...
Not bad for a first time, even if I do say so myself. I hope it starts to look better with some practice. Ginny was also kind enough to buy me a french polish kit. Yay!
