WIP Wednesday- Girasole

Work in Progress Wednesday- today. 

I am teaching a class at MakeOne in Milwaukie on the Girasole Pattern.  I made this pattern earlier this year for myself for my birthday.  You can find the project page here and the previous blog post here.  It has been nice to work the pattern again.  As you can see from the pictures above I am currently working two at a time.  One is out of Cascade Heritage and the other out of Kauni Effektgarn 8/2 Rainbow.  It is a self striping rainbow yarn with long runs of colors to make nice bands in the pattern.  My favorite part of the pattern is that the charts are just long enough and then I am ready to start the next chart. Currently both are keeping pace on chart D.  It will be a work in progress for a while.  So you will likely see it again next week.

WIP- Trousseau

This pattern has been waiting in the wings for me to knit it.  I even knew the yarn I was going to use.  You can sort of tell from the picture. But the blue is so very BLUE!  This is definitely not a normal color for me.  But, it was just one of those...I had to have.  So far the pattern is a breeze.  Very easy but stunning to look at lace pattern.  The yarn I am using is Malabrigo Silky.  One of my favorites.  I can't wait to see the finished project.

Speaking of finished projects.  I did finish the lovely Terra Shawl.  But, I haven't had an opportunity to take an artsy picture yet.  It is an enormously busy work week.  You all will definitely get to see the finished product.

Be well.  Create.  Inspire.

{this moment} - A Friday ritual inspired by SouleMama. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

WIP Wednesday- Terra Update

Officially on the final leg of making this shawl.  I have started the last lace chart and the last skein of yarn.  So, maybe by Monday I can post a picture of the finished project.   It is turning out great!
