Just a quick catch up. I swear I have been playing with fiber.

I got this done and gave it away yesterday. ***Blurgh*** Pink...

And I wiped out this one finally. It's a lovely knit, but it gets a bit tedious.

And dug into this little beauty that is to be for a friend who fell in love with the yarn when it was on my wheel still in it's singles.

Hope you are all doing well and have a wonderful end of the weekend.

The shawl is beautifully done, but I can see how the body of it might get a little tiresome. I like the edge.

I am not a fan of pink.

I am not a fan of pink. Especially pepto bismal pink. I don't even like working with it. But if I have to I prefer something more jewel toned like a fuschia. Just because I spun the yarn doesn't always mean I want to use it, so some of my own yarns go to those that will appreciate them more than I do. As for the shawl, all but the three corners are a simple 8 row repeat. Which most lace is a series of repeats. They get tiresome at times, though in love working it and making something beautiful.

Thank you Sir. I just couldn't leave that beautiful lace weight yarn in the store when I saw it, and then the pattern begged for it.

My Alterknit Universe blog?

My Alterknit Universe blog? It is on hiatus for now. I feel like everything I was doing there was basically being dupliated on here. Plus I list any projects on Ravelry, so it was more like triplicate. I am not sure if I'll go back to posting on there or not. There was a sense of fun about it, but it did take a lot of time and honestly I don't think it had much of an audience.
