Thought I'd share my finished Wisp, from the summer 2007 Knitty. The yarn is Filatura di Crosa Baby Kid Extra. I knit it longer than in the pattern, so I can wear it as a scarf rather than a wrap. It's soft and fun to wear, and I've gotten tons of compliments on it!

Mountain Peak Shawl

At last I've finished something. I got several shawls on the needles but here's my Mountain Peak Shawl knitted in Ullcentrums one stranded with needles nr 5 mm. More pictures you can see on my blog.

I finished my first (squee!) shawl-from-a-pattern-I-designed-and-am-publishing. I don't really have much of a reason for calling her Agatha, but Agatha she is.

It's made from three skeins of ShiBui Knits Merino Kid (used up every bit of the total 654 yards) in the colorway Mulberry. More details on my blog.

Dare I say


While this moth did bring a smidge of aggravation (eep - running out of yarn!), it was well worth all the effort at the end. Details and big photos and musings can all be found on my finished objects blog.

Swallowtail...and more!

I'm so excited about my simultaneous finished objects:

a purple silk Swallowtail for a friend's 40th birthday:

--and my book! (Nope--not about knitting, I'm afraid.)

Now I've got a serious case of--and I think a serious justification for--a little startitis. Any suggestions for new projects?

Anne's garden Stole

I have finished my Garden Stole for Anne. My own design but inspired by A Gathering of Lace. For a few hours, after the dyeing, I thought I had completely ruined it because it had started to felt. It survived but lost a bit of stitch definition.
More pitures at my blog:

Swallowtail & Shetland

I recently finished knitting the Swallowtail Shawl. I used 1.6 oz of silk of my handspun. I followed the pattern as written because I didn't think I would have enough yarn left, but thankfully, I did.


I have started on a new knitting project from some Superwash merino roving that I handpainted and spun into laceweight. It is a bit loftier than the silk and is at the lumpy, bumpy stage. Here is a picture of it smoothed and pinned out.


I am presently spinning some silk for the Heartland Lace Shawl, also by Evelyn Clark. I've completed 2 Clark patterns. And I have 2 more planned. I am so devoted to her amazing patterns. If you want to read more about my spinning and knitting process, please check out my blog.
