I LOVE this! I've played the game soooo much that I actually hear "Hey, Listen!" in my head when I'm lost, need help, or taking too long or whatever.

Thanks everyone!

Jyrotika: The patterns are linked in the original post, Gail (aka Nightsongs) I found on Ravelry, and Storm Cloud Shawlette was found on Ever Green Knits (blog)

I've been in love with Gail (aka Nightsongs) for quite some time now, and I finally made it. I won this yarn in a Battlestar Galactica fibery game, it's dyed by Christina Marie Potter, and I love it!



I HATE blocking, I love what it does, but I hate actually doing it, so it took me almost 2 weeks to get it blocked:


Closeup:


I love the Cylony yarn. I had to bind off early because I ran out of yarn, so I ended up using a different red yarn to bind off. I like it, it sort of frames the piece a bit.

And my Storm Cloud Shawlette:


Yarn is Cadenza by Estelle. I was really sick last week, and I needed a simple project and this was just perfect!

They're all beautiful!
I really like that they all have texture, and the red one with that pattern is spectacular. 

Thank you! At first I was going to block out the wavy texture of the clapotis, but after wearing it once I kind of fell in love with it. I do really love the red one, definitely my favourite out of all my shawls so far.

Those are so cool! I love the one in the last photo. I think painting them would be really neat, but it might take away from them as well.

These are all so adorable! But I especially love the chocolate chunk cookies

They're all beautiful I had never heard of Lavalette, so thanks or the link. I think I'll be making it in DK yarn. Wink

Thanks! I found it on Ravelry one day, it seems to be a pretty popular pattern with Ravelry members, it's a lovely pattern and really easy too! It's a good knit for when you need something you can just work on from your head.

Thanks everyone!

erdbeerblau & ally-oops: Juno Regina is definitely my favourite too, it's a beautiful pattern but it's also simple enough to wear with just about everything, and I loooove that red!

brighteyed0ne: Thanks! No problem! I know it's simple to quickly search for something, but I usually don't end up doing it because I like just clicking links. hehe

Missing_Muse: I don't really consider anything all that complicated once it's broken down row by row, I always try to take things one step at a time! I adore all these colours, I usually wear all black and sometimes a hint of green, but I've recently tried to add more colour to my wardrobe. I figured I'd start small with accessories for a punch of colour. Plus, knitting in black all the time is so boring.

Well, I guess two are "wraps" technically. I love shawls, I'm the shawl lady now and I love it! All were made over the summer, I've made a ton more but don't want a huge FO dump, so here are the highlights of my summer shawl knitting:

I jumped on the bandwagon way late, but now I understand why everyone loves to make Clapotis. I totally bought this yarn just so I could match it to eyeliner. I used Araucania Ranco, which is like my new favourite yarn. I love it so much!


My Juno Regina, which I am in love with. I made mine 7 repeats wide because I wanted a wider stole and had more yardage than the pattern called for, so i figured I'd use most of it up. That 42" of the middle section was killer though!
Made with Diamond Yarn Luxury Collection Baby Alpaca Lace (2.5 skeins)



And my latest, which I completed very recently, Lavalette. Made in worsted weight (cascade 220, about 2 skeins) so it's much bigger than the lace version, and much warmer, which I need because winter is fast approaching. I ran out of yarn at the end, so I cut the last repeat about 10 rows short so I could do the final rows properly.
