While on vacation, I've knitted two shawl.
The first one is a "knit as you go" - i.e. without any pattern - where I used the indeed wonderful yarn Bijou Spun by Bijou Basin Ranch Tibetan Dream Sock Yarn. Details on Ravelry. I did not bring blocking wires and gave the shawl away, so I had to make do with what I had to block it. It worked well.
The second summer project is another shawl. Here I used Bart & Francis Quiviut/Morus silk yarn held double. The pattern is Haramelis. This yarn is also wonderful when knitting and drapes well. More at raverly.
The next item that I've finished is my Austin Cardie knitted in Spirit Trail Fiberworks' Birte. I had to make some alterations to the pattern as I only had 4 skeins of each color, and to make a "onecolor" cardie I would have needed 6 skeins in one color. The only regret I have, is that I did not have enough yarn to add 4 inches to the length of it. It is on the short side for my taste. More at Ravelry.
After buying the I-pad I've been busy scanning all my pattern. When doing that I did "find" a pattern from PT yarn that, with a few alterations, could be used for a dress in Wollmeise. I've used one skein of pink yarn (or part thereof) and lots and lots of scraps. More at Ravelry.
Finally, this week I've knitted a new pair of gloves to be prepared for the winter. I've used Wollmeise 100% Superwash and the pattern is Bamburg from the Knitter. A fun and relatively fast knit. I've used approximately 140 g yarn. More details here.
I'll be back bloging more frequently in August(ish). Have a nice summer all.
