Different Lines, Done

Different Lines Shawl

I’ve finished the Different Lines shawl that I mentioned a while ago. I absolutely love it!
The pattern is brilliant and I’m super happy about the yarn combo I chose too. Wingspan 190 cm, 66 cm at its deepest point. (I’m sorry about the rubbish picture, it doesn’t do it justice at all…)

Different Lines Shawl

Different Lines Shawl

This is what’s on my needles at the moment :)

It’s an absolutely delicious knit so far, and I’m enjoying it immensely :) Soft, snuggly, fuzzy, warm, squishy, light and irresistable!

“One of the secrets of always being found (and this seems like a real paradox) is there must be a complete willingness to be totally lost.”

Noro Halflings

Camp Out Mitts

Here are the finished halflings (fingerless mitts) that I wrote about in the previous post. I’m very happy with how they turned out, and I’ll definitely use this pattern again, with the same modifications :)

Yarn: Noro Silk Garden #326, 50 g/100 m
Pattern: Camp Out Fingerless Mitts by Tante Ehm
Mods: Longer garter rib section at the top, wider across the palm/back of the hand, wider and longer thumb gusset, added garter stitch cuff.

And for those wondering: No, there actually weren’t any sections of dirty yellow in this particular skein :) No “editing” necessary, yay! And only one knot/join/colour break.

Enthu and Tiresomeness

I was feeling immensely enthusiastic about these fingerless mitts yesterday :)

Today, however… not so much. I love how the design looks (Camp Out Fingerless Mitts by Tante Ehm) and I adore this yarn (Noro Silk Garden #326), but somehow no matter how I try and modify the details these mitts just won’t fit my hand :(

I’ve been ripping back countless times already, and tried so many different adjustments… What felt like boundless enthu yesterday is now quickly fading… So tiresome :( I’ll put them aside for now and try again another day. *sigh*

ETA: One day and loads of mods later, the enthusiasm is back! I’m finally happy with how it fits, and I’ve started on the second mitt now :)
