New project: Whisper Cardigan

My second try at a Whisper Cardigan

Start of a Whisper Cardigan

The yarn is Madelinetosh Lace, and it's beautiful stuff. And I really hope this one goes better than my first Whisper, which ended with moths... or maybe spiders... something small that eats yarn.

Juneberry Triangle

I've been busy...

Juneberry Triangle Shawl

I finished a Juneberry Triangle for J's mom. She has spent quite a while hinting--not subtly, either--that she would love it if I were to knit her something. When I gave her the finished shawl, she looked at it and asked, "Is this something you made?" I told her it was, and the reaction was priceless: "ALL RIGHT!" She was pretty jazzed about it. She's keeping proudly displayed on the back of her favorite living room chair.

All the different lace patterns kept this project very interesting and challenging. Paying attention to the pattern was key. No working on Juneberry during Game of Thrones!

The yarn is some Elsebeth Lavold Cotton Patine that has been in my stash pretty much forever. I was thrilled to finally find a use for it.

And look, I even did all of the bobbles:

The ones on the edging too:

I may have to make one for myself one of these days!
