Laminaria, First Chart
Laminaria, First Chart
Just a few rows into the Star Chart of the Laminaria Shawl, I'm finding the going fairly easy. I'm loving the Estonian star stitches; they really are lovely. And the mohair isn't pissing me off too much yet. Then again, I haven't made any mistakes (that I know of!) yet.....

The yarn is Manos del Uruguay Silk Wool, in bright purple. I'm sending this to the recipient unblocked as it won't stay crisp in the post and she feels confident to block it herself.

Well, for a project I thought I was going to finish on Friday night of Van der Filk, this was a fail. Of course, I did have lots of other things to do! I cast it off this afternoon, and here it is unblocked.

...with the contents of my knitting bag, now being packed for a single weekend, during which I am a guest of honour at a convention. As in, programmed much of the time; in other words, performing.

  • Primary Sock Project (Cinderella Slipper)
  • Secondary Sock Project (Hypnosis)
  • Tertiary Sock Project (Harika, which really ought to be the primary sock project)
  • Quaternary Sock Project (silk/wool toe-ups on self-patterning yarn with an inserted heel)
  • Primary Lace Project (198 Yards of Heaven, in purple Manos del Uruguay Silk Wool)
  • Secondary Lace Project (Laminaria, in Sherbert green Seriously Gorgeous)
  • Tertiary Lace Project [aka yeah, right!] (Heeere be Dragone, in neon green Malabrigo lace)
  • Serina Shawl 2, in Elsbeth Lavold Hempathy (blue and red) -- because if I finish it, it would make a nice charity auction donation
  • Serina Shawl 3, in Rowan Simply Bamboo (gunmetal grey) -- because if I finish it, it would make a nice charity auction donation
  • Collonade Shawl, in Manos del Uruguay (red and brown) -- because if I finish it, I could finally send my sister her Christmas present
  • Silk Moebius Cowl (finished) in Debbie Bliss Pure Silk (brown) -- because it will make a nice charity auction donation
  • Four skeins of Manos del Uruguay Silk Wool in hot pink -- because it will make a nice charity auction donation, and really, what was I thinking? HOT PINK?!
  • Two skeins of sock wool, just in case I have to start another project while I'm there
  • Four pairs of socks to darn
  • Darning egg
  • Notions bag, with about six extra circular needles in sizes from 1.0-3.25mm, plus the usual stitch markers and etc.
  • The Eclectic Sole
  • You don't even want to know how many .pdf patterns there are on my iPhone.


The worst part is, I'm sure I'm forgetting something.

There may need to be a Knitting Intervention one of these days....

Recently, I Got Yarn. I also started a new sock, plus did some work on some older projects. Clearly, I am seeking distractions against the other sock I have to design this week....
