denim blue cardigan

Okay, as promised - here is the cardigan I've been working on since the beginning of February. It's far from finished - luckily I really love to knit this one.

I'll return with more info when it's all done and ready to wear.

Kimono Shawl - chapter two

So I finished the kimono shawl. Not today, not yesterday - nope, it was last Wednesday. I just haven't had the time to tell you all about it. It was fairly easy to knit, but as always when I'm knitting something so easy and relaxing that you can eat, go for a cruise on ravelry, watch tv, etc. all at once - well, at some point I stop paying attention to the pattern and I tend to notice this a weeee bit too late :) Oh well - at least I always take the time to fix my 'mess ups'.

Okay - here it is....

I know it's a bit dark... unfortunately I can't control the sun.... yet.

Pattern: Kimono Shawl, from 'Folk Shawls'
Yarn: 100 % silk
Skeins: 12 (25 g pr skein)
From start to finish: March 26 - April 16, 2008
For: me - was going to a wedding a needed something lacy to cover my shoulders.

Kimono Shawl

This year I'll be going to no less than four weddings and because it's usually a struggle when it comes to finding the right outfit for that kind of event, I decided to make a shawl... because... at least I'll have that! Hopefully I'll find something else to wear too considering the lace pattern and all... I only have three weeks to finish it - here is how far I've come:

I'll probably need to do another 20 rows or so :)
