First a "Thank You" for the comments on my Swan Lake Stole. They are much appreciated.
Lacy Kerchief ScarfFinished
This is Lisa Daehlin's pattern from Interweave Knits, Summer 2005 and also in Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2006. I've used the lovely drapey Phil'Bambou from Phildar in colour Eucalyptus - 4mm needles.
I didn't make mine as wide as the pattern so it only took 3 1/2 balls and grew really quickly. I loved knitting it and shall love wearing it and will probably make another.
From Yarnplay by Lisa Shobhana Mason.
6 skeins Noro Silk Garden shade #84 and 3 skeins Noro Cash Iroha shade #91 on 5mm needles but I used an extra skein of Silk Garden so that I could match the stripes.
Another fun knit. The underarm to hem is knit sideways in one piece so there are no side seams and I grafted the centre back so no seam there either. Then pick up stitches around the top for the yoke and back.
I very boringly chose exactly the same colours as those used in the book but they do seem a good choice with winter just round the corner.
And just following the instructions has given me a nicely fitting jumper for once.
And next....I'm going to make the Hemlock Ring Blanket like Jared
