I have finished the Mother of All Shawl I was knitting for a special family member for her Prom dress. She hasn’t seen it yet, I asked her to bring her dress over so I can get a picture of her with her dress and shawl. 🙂 This was a very fun knit, had to pay a little attention (as with all lace patterns) but not a lot and it was a peaceful shawl to knit. I will definitely knit this one again :).
Will get back to the socks to see if I can’t get at least one of the socks done to see what I might need to change on the next pair, there are always changes until you get things adapted to your knitting style and gauge. 🙂
Well a special family member loves owls and asked me for a bag to show her love for those little critters. So we went shopping for the fabric and there were two she had a hard time choosing from so I bought them both and used the larger print for the outside and the smaller print for the inside, tho it’s reversible and she can change it if she wants :).
I am knitting on the Mother of All Shawl and only have 1 1/2 mini skeins to go. Hopefully I will be done by Sunday :). It’s really a fun and relaxing knit and is really pretty. I haven’t taken an updated picture but will take a picture of it when it is finished and blocked. 🙂 Then I can get back tho those socks I am almost ready to turn the heel on.
A family member will be graduating this year, so for her graduation gift I am knitting her a shawl for her Senior Prom. She said her prom dress would be aqua, and I found this beautiful gradient aqua mini skeins at my closest local yarn shop, Stitch Together. It’s a subtle change from light to dark a little hard to capture on the pictures.
The started shawl picture is on the right. I just started the 2nd color and am about 1/2 into that color. There are 5 shades, it will be very lovely. The shawl is the Mother of All Shawl by Nick Davis. It’s easy and fun to knit, but yes you do need to keep your mind on what you are doing for the changes that happen every so often in the pattern. I will add this my Ravelry project page.
Still working on the socks will update a picture after I finish this shawl, I’m on a crunch time line with the shawl 😛
Hope you are enjoying this wonderful warmer (tho as normal uneven) Spring weather, it’s SPRING!!!!!!!
