I love how the lace in the body section opens up when it's blocked out, it's so pretty now. Both lace patterns were very simple to work although it did mean sometimes my brain would switch off and I'd forget a YO and have to tink back. I think that says more about my attention span than the pattern though
I gently blocked the body with slight points. Not sure why, I just liked the look of it!
The beads on the bow are such a pretty touch
I rather hope this pattern makes it into adult sizes, although all those double YO's might take a while lol
I promised you two FO's this week though so here's my Wingspan shawl. I knitted it on 3.25mm needles rather than the 3.5mm recommended by the pattern as I preferred the fabric. It also meant I had enough yarn to do a 9th triangle and work the border/neck bit twice as big so I could cast off with the bright green colour
Completely accidental but I really like how the colours are matching on both sides
As you can see, my model has claimed this shawl for her own. Whilst she wouldn't normally wear it over a cardigan (she refused to take it off!), I can't deny it suits her much more than me so she can have it :-)
Well that's the end of my photo filled post. Today I'm going to try to get the pockets done on the vest from yesterday but I think that's probably going to be it. It's the second day of the Summer holidays and I had a very late night last night. Spending the day in bed would be very appealing apart from the knowledge the house would be a mess thanks to the children.
As usual I'm linking in with Tami's Amis FO Friday posts. Hope you have a lovely day, thanks for dropping by. I'm looking forward to reading through other people's FO Friday posts :-)
