Finished Objects of Others – Summer 14

Today I want to share with you some pictures that reached me this summer. They are of finished objects that were made with my patterns and made me mightily happy when I saw them. So here are my favorites: A lovely Feathers Shawlette by Theresa Mock. I especially love the colours of the yarn! This beautiful nautical Sainte-Marie Scarf has been knitted by B-Schimbera. She knew the …

Elinor is finally blocking and more

I am having a couple of days off this week and so I finally have some time on my hands again for the more interesting things in life… like crafting and blogging. The big news is already in the title: I blocked my pink Elinor today. I finished knitting it almost four weeks ago, but never made it to weaving in the ends and blocking …

But it’s growing and as the rows are getting shorter now, it feels like I’m making tremendous progress anyway… And I thought, you might like to see the pictures.

I settled on some left-over fingering weight shetland yarn in purple. It matches the colours of the colour-gradient yarn quite nicely and I like the sharply defined colour change in contrast to the slowly …

The pink Elinor Shawlette is growing

Elinor Shawlette Detail

Slowly, but surely my pink version of the Elinor Shawlette is growing. I’ve knitted 9 full lace repeats and am ready to head into the short row section in the middle. I’ve calculated that I should have used up only 43 to 44% of the yarn yet. The scale says I’m left with 55g of the 99g that were there at the start. So I …
