1  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Swallowtail Lace Shawl! on: December 04, 2006 05:43:27 AM

Pattern: Swallowtail Lace Shawl from Fall '06 Interweave Knits
Yarn: Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool it's a dark navy blue I don't have the color number. It took just over 2 hanks.
Needles: US 8
Started: October 12th
Finished: December 2nd.

This is my first lace shawl and it took me a while because I only worked on it on Sundays for the most part.  I took a class to get me through this as my first lace shawl was a complete disaster.  Now that I've finished this successfully, I'll be going back to that first shawl.  I will not let Adamas defeat me!

For the nupps, I did a Sl3 P2tog psso instead of the p5tog.  Because I had no interest in slowly driving myself insane.

2  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Shedir! on: November 29, 2006 05:11:14 AM
By far the most challenging thing I've knit to date.

This is from the Breast Cancer Awareness edition of Knitty.com.  I made it for my BiL and will be presenting it to him for Christmas.  Rest assured, it is a dark blue, not purple as the red lamp behind me would have you believe.

Pattern:  Shedir
Yarn:  Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino (1 and some balls)
Needles:  US 3
Mods:  Omitted one repeat of the main cable pattern

More pics and evidence of just how insane I really am can be found On My Blog Post.  Truly, one of the knits I am most proud of.
3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Plymouth Royal Bamboo Lacey Camisole and Shrug on: September 18, 2006 08:14:19 AM
I just finished this yesterday!  It's from the August Issue of Knit 'n Style magazine.  I did the 36" size and together with the shrug, only used about 10 1/2 balls of the Royal Bamboo.  It's color #40.  It was a quick knit, and other than the yarn being a wee splitty, and the shrug pattern being edited down to a near indecipherable length, an easy knit.

Unfortunately, I don't have nearly the post count here as I do on the knittyboards, so I can't post pics yet.  But you can see it in all it's glory HERE for now.

Well, seems you've sucked me in fast enough today that pics can now be done.
