Another WIP Wednesday! Things are continuing. The February Lady Sweater has pretty much gone back into procrastinatory hibernation (but will likely be pulled out when the whim strikes). The design-socks are still being kept away from cameras, and that leaves two things. Two?! Yes. Two.
A Shawl! Well…whatever it is, it’s sure a bright pink. That’s the Brandywine Shawl, designed by Romi Hill, and I’m attempting to knit it from Allison Avery Premium Hand-Dyed Yarn (colourway: Girlie). If the yarn looks familiar, it means you have a good eye. I attempted a homebrew version of Stephanie Pearl-McPhee’s Lenore out of that yarn. It was ripped back when I realized that the challenge had gone out of the project and the yarn was a little thin for the task of being lace socks. It’s not the only thing I’ve attempted from it. I tried a plain pair of socks (flashing & pooling issues) and a pair of socks that used some pretty fancy yarn-overs (thinness of the yarn, again). I think it works great as a shawl! Much nicer!
Second thing on my needles is my Shur’tugal Socks by Alice Yu. They’re my March Skinflint Socks. Say it with me: Mmmmmmalabrigo! Apparently, March is “Malabrigo March” or “Malabrigo Madness”. I can get behind that!
Last on the list is the spinning. We’re down 50g of Fleece Artist BFL Sliver and have started the second 50g. I’m thinking possibly of doing a 2-ply. Might be fun!
