I have to say I’ve been busy knitting quite a lot lately. So much so that I’ve neglected my gaming hobby, and I love gaming nearly as much as I love knitting, but not quite as much, hence it gets neglected. Anyhow, as a result I have finished two more gifts, one for my future mother-in-law, and one for an auntie of mine.
This is the shawl I designed and knitted for my mother-in-law. It is knitted from three different yarns, all three were left over from other projects and I couldn’t decide on what to make with them. That was until I remembered someone who likes purple nearly as much as I do, and then I thought if I modify the shawl pattern I designed for someone else, then it should work beautifully. This is the result and I am really pleased with how it’s turned out. This will be a Christmas gift for my future mother-in-law. I hope she likes it.
The second knitted gift I finished recently (yesterday), is also a shawl, but this one isn’t a Christmas gift, as my auntie doesn’t do Christmas. I wanted to make her something, and she loves cats and pink, so I knew I had to incorporate both into what I knitted for her, the pink part was easy to do. I found a gorgeous dusky pink yarn with hints of purple, I used Eden Cottage Yarns Bfl sock yarn in Raspberry. I knew I wanted to make a entrelac based shawl, but couldn’t hit on a stitch pattern until I came across cats paw lace stitch, which is perfect. This is the result. I can’t wait to give it to my auntie.
Also my wedding dress is finished. My mum added the last of the flowers on Tuesday. I will take pictures of it soon. I won’t have any of me wearing it until after the wedding though. It’s super exciting knowing I have my dress all ready to wear. I am currently knitting lavender flowers to have poking out of my leafy lace wrist bag, I didn’t want a standard bouquet.
Anyhow will return at a later date with more knitting news and pictures.
