June 10, 2015 Work in Progress Wednesdays
|What's going on?|
|Fiber Camp Magic Ruffle Shawl|
Yarn: assorted sock weight yarns from my leftover bin, knit on size 7 needles.
Fiber Camp and the casting on was back in March, during a class I taught on how to make a Magic Cake. I worked on it steadily for a while but then this project was pushed aside by other more happenin' patterns. I am now on the border and it should be finished soon, but I think I have over 600 stitches on the needles, so I slog along. I do love the colors and will make this pattern again for sure.
|This is the start of my Magic Cake.|
|This is the part that flies, not so many stitches and lots of color changing.|
Yarn: Cascade Yarns Heritage Paints 150 in the Dahlia colorway and CascadeYarns Heritage Silk in the Primavera colorway on size 5 needles
I want to share that the color of this project is very hard to capture, I may replace this pictures with an updated version if I can get closer to the real tonal value.
I began this KAL project after seeing it on the Ravelry Top Twenty Patterns board. The construction is different from any other cowl I have made and I like the way the multi colored yarn undulates. If you don't know, I am not a fan of pooling and I try to choose a pattern that will not end up in the frog pond because of my aversion. It starts out simply with a few stitches cast on and it grows, I think you might enjoy the construction. As I worked on it I checked the Spoiler Alert thread to see how other projects were looking. I am on the final clue and should be finished within the week if I don't start anything else. All bets are off on that status though, I have a concept I am excited to share with you.... more this weekend on that!
So, I hope you are enjoying good health, nice weather and successful knitting! See you Friday.
