A couple more presents for some lovely friends...this time purple-themed.
Pattern: Textured Shawl Recipe by Orlane
Yarn: Misti Alpaca Worsted Solids, 1 skein
Needles: US 10
Start to Finish: November 13-16, 2009
Notes: This is quite a bit smaller than the original due to the amount of yarn I had. I left out some of the stockinette at the end as well as much of the garter stitch border. So it's more of a kerchief than a shawl. But it's enough to be pretty cozy. Also, I LOVE this yarn.
Pattern: Baktus, by Strikkelise
Yarn: Pigeonroof Studios Silk Twist, received in a generous giveaway from The Lady
Needles: US 5
Start to Finish: November 9-10, 2009
Notes: 2,690 people can't be wrong...this is a great pattern. And being able to use up every little bit of this gorgeous yarn and not wasting even an inch made me very, very happy.
Up next: Knitted Christmas gifts for pets (because, you know, they celebrate the holidays, too).
