Aah! So it might seem that I have been sitting idle this week, perhaps taken a little breather, but things are not always as they seem! I have made a quilt this week; pieced a top, prepared the backing, basted, and quilted a quilt, all in the last few days. Unfortunately it's one of those secret projects, and I can't show it to you yet. Not just yet. Not even the snippets of fabric of the yet to be released fabric collection by some clever Aussie girls that covered the floor of my sewing area. Sorry ...
But ... I can show you my finished knitting project. I know, it's not a quilt, but I am still working my way through a knitting phase and have again enjoyed knitting a shawl. The pattern is Cladonia by Kristen Kapur from Through the Loops Designs, and this is my second version of this shawl. See my first Cladonia Shawl here.
The yarn is Madelinetosh Merino Light in Silver Fox and Plucky Knitter Primo Fingering in "That Old Feeling". I am still a novice at choosing yarn for a color study project and it took several color changes before I was happy to proceed with this project.
This project looks so much more impressive and complicated than what it actually is to knit. If you're keen to try your hand at a lace knitting project I can highly recommend this pattern; the pattern involves not much more than a yo, ssk, k2tog and plenty of stitch markers. It's very do-able.
