It has dawned on me that I haven't posted on here in forever... though I check and read the site almost daily.
I have been knitting - and finishing objects - but I keep forgetting to take photos of the finished objects!
Recently I completed a super-sized Forest Canopy Shawl (by Susan Pierce Lawrence of "I'm Knitting As Fast As I Can") done in Mountain Colors Weaver's Wool. Shades of Blue and Green that are reminiscent of new growth on a Colorado Blue Spruce tree. Gave it to my cousin, Mimi, who may or may not get photos of it for me. It's huge and pretty!
I also knit a Hooded Scarf utilizing the "general recipe" provided by Robert Matthews on Ravelry. It was great fun calling up my sister to ask her to do various measurements of her head and hands. She had no idea what I was up to! I knit both the Hooded Scarf and a pair of fingerless mitts (no pattern - just winged it) out of Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mills (www.blackberry-ridge.com) Bulky Weight Mohair/Wool Blend in the "Autum Oaks" colorway. Gorgeous! Again, no pictures!
Most recently, I completed my version of the Clapotis Shawl from Knitty.com by Kate Gilbert. Since I am of such an imposing stature, I doubled the width and 4x the length of the shawl. The shawl, without blocking , is apporximately 3 feet wide and 8 feet long. The designer knicknamed my version of the Clapotis as the "Clap-O-Sauris Rex" due to it's immense size! I knitted it using Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mills (www.blackberry-ridge.com) Medium Weight 100% Wool in a discontinued bronze/orange colorway. I had a 3" diameter penannular brooch specially made (www.thorthoshammer.com) that I wear with this awesome and manly shawl!!! Pictures of this will be forthcoming.
