I finally got a start on the Findhorn Wrap from the AC Techniques (formerly AC Knitwear) Confident Knitting club. This month’s technique is modular knitting, which I haven’t done much of at all. And since it’s a nifty pattern, I though I’d give it a go! It is made up of four long strips, so… Continue reading Findhorn Wrap
The next project I start is still going to be the Findhorn Wrap, but now I’m rethinking my yarns. I had planned on using these colors: But those really aren’t colors I wear most of the year, and I would be struggling to wear it.

With my cowl and DH’s socks done, I have one project left on the needles right now – my Lustrous Shawl. I’ve got 2 repeats done out of 37, so there’s a while to go yet.

I got my Lustrous Shawl started today, and got one pattern repeat done! This is a lovely pattern and lovely yarn, and though I’m barely into it at this point, I’m enjoying this knit 🙂 How is your weekend going? Getting much relaxing in?

I like the yarn colors together a lot, and it is a pretty straightforward pattern. So far, so good! The first Burnished mitten is done, and got a little… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs

Yay – something else is finished! My Patina scarf cowl is done. The pattern is part of the Confident Knitting pattern/technique club by AC Knitwear, and was designed by Jeanette Sloan (Ravelry link). The yarn is Schoppel Wolle Gradient in the Tea Ceremony colorway. I did change it a bit. It was supposed to be… Continue reading FO Friday
Other than the EM socks, my only current WIP is my Patina scarf. I decided to change things up on this project, and the result is that I’m almost done! This is supposed to be a nifty scarf with some clever design features and uses 2 100g balls of Schoppel Wool Gradient. This then gets… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
