Because I keep finishing things! So, this is a plan-to-start post with an FO too.
Plan to start: Since I finished the current knit at 11:00 pm Tuesday, I don’t have a WIP. But, I plan to start the Summer Shawlette from Wendy’s blog. I already have the yarn ready, the pattern printed, and the needles, so cast on will commence today. I am making a larger version, since I have 800 yds of the Yarn Daze Fingering, so hello major counting job!
And, since I have 3 FOs to show, I will do one today, one Friday and then hold one back for next week. Today’s FO comes from the lovely Through The Loops blog. Cladonia is a lovely shawl that uses two colors. You are supposed to stripe it, but the purple I chose to contrast my orange skein, was too close to the purple in the orange variegated Koigu. So I just used the variegated on the body and saved the purple for the lace edge. I love the shape! Not too happy with the color placement, but it will grow on me.
I purchased the Koigu while in San Fran on our trip. It was the best thing about the trip! No, really. LOL. Having a lot of orange and a little purple in my closet, this item will get a lot of wear. I plan to wear it today to show off. As soon as I change out of these pajamas! I really need to reblock one edge of this. It was too big to fit on my blocking board, so one corner is not as defined as it could be. I doubt anyone would noticed, but I know it.
Now, go check out what other knitters have been other working on at Tami’s.
