Knitting News?

Indeed. I’ve been quietly working away on a very special shawl.

Pattern: Summer Flies Rav link, and Summer Flies non rav link.
Yarn: Malabrigo Silky Merino (DK) in Cape Cod Grey
Needles: size 7 KnitPicks Options (60 in cord by the end)

Mods: Due to using DK instead of worsted weight and 7’s instead of 8’s I added an extra section of Ridged Eyelet and a section of modified Knotted Openwork. Also had no intention of doing a picot bind-off on 500 stitches, so….added three rows to ruffle, ending with a knit row on the wrong side and using the Russian cast off.

Dates: 3/9-4/11 Obviously, it wouldn’t have taken so long if I had been able to work on it daily….This should really be a quick knit of about a week or two, especially if you use worsted!

Verdict: Love it!

Tempis Fugit (my version of Summer Flies)

I can’t tell you who it’s for yet….but very, very soon I will, and hopefully have pics of this FO in use. 🙂
