Project 365 - April 5
A pretty good sunset

On & off the needles

Off the needles, but not yet blocked, is the Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl in Shepherd Sock. I knitted 17 repeats before the edging and used almost two skeins of yarn. I had about 3 metres of yarn left.

On the needles now is another of the same, this time in Koigu KPPPM. I love this pattern; it's fairly mindless knitting but still keeps me interested. I'm giving an Addi Turbo Lace circ a whirl and it handles very nicely indeed. Should say that I'm not too keen on the faint whiff of cleaning-brass-with-Duraglit that wafts under my nose while knitting...

Destined to be next on the needles is Vyvyan Neel's Argosy Wrap, a free download from Knitting in a Happy Camper, knitted in Noro Silk Garden, colourway 226. The original wrap's knitted in three colourways of Kureyon (itchy, scratchy stuff) but I think Silk Garden is much nicer to knit with.

Comments

Thanks for the link to argosy .The site is down at the moment but when back that looks very me. I agree silk-garden is nicer but even then it's a bit thorny. I might try cadenza or something similar.
