What I'm making
« on: December 05, 2016, 05:15:54 AM »
Following Milla's lead, I thought I'd share a little about what I'm working on now.

I don't have pictures since I'm terrible with a camera (but trying to get into a photography class!), but I can share a picture of the pattern (I hope).

It's a shawl made of 100% cashmere aran weight yarn for my DIL. The color is dark gray leaning toward navy under the right light. I hope to complete it in time for Christmas.

The picture below belongs to Ambah O'Brien, the pattern designer.

That is a lovely shawl. I find them so useful. Just the right thing to wear over a dress on a chilly night, if you are going out.

Styyna, how are you doing with your shawl for DIL?

The shawl is about 2/3 to 3/4 done but won't be done in time because we're getting together at son and DIL's home tomorrow evening for our Christmas celebration. That's fine, though. I should have it finished by the end of next week and that will give me a great excuse to get together with them again soon.

I love how it looks and feels and will try to remember to take a picture of it once it's finished and blocked. This is the first time I've used 100% cashmere yarn and it's so squishy and delightful to handle.

Thanks, SusieQ! I finished it but have yet to block it. Perhaps today. Then I'll take pictures.
