A couple more FO's; cable pocket wrap and Estonial Lullaby blanket
In the past couple weeks, I've made another Estonian Lullaby blanket and a cable pocket wrap. The Estonian Lullaby is another of Evelyn Clark's beautiful designs for Fiber Trends. The yarn is Shepard Colour 4 Me, an 8-ply superwash wool I've used many times. I used a US8 Addi Turbo 32" needle and used 500 grams of wool.
The turquoise wrap is the Cable Pocket Shawl from Knit Picks. I bought the yarn (Sierra) when it was on clearance and like it quite a bit. This shawl is knitted in two halves which are then brought together with a three needle bind off. This gave me a look I wasn't overly fond of, but since this wrap is to keep me warm, it's OK. I'll make the shawl again, but will find a different way to graft the two halves together. I used 8 100 gram hanks of yarn and a size 10 Addi Turbo 32" needle for the main shawl; a size 8 Addi Turbo needle for the garter stitch borders.
