More FOs...



I've been just a bit busy...

Here's my version of the Classic Elite Interlude Lace Wrap done in their Classic Silk yarn. I made this for the CEY Knit-a-long that goes with their new web letter. The yarn is a blend of cotton, silk, and nylon and is gorgeous stuff! I used 7 full balls of yarn and a size 7 needle. I added repeats to make the shawl wider than what the pattern called for and to compensate for the slightly lighter weight yarn. This shawl, like all the others, was donated to the local cancer centre.

The socks are made in Lorna's Laces "Gelato", which was an exclusive colourway for my favourite eBay enabler, emptnestr. It worked up a bit oddly, as you can see from the various pooling in the photo, but I quite like it! The pattern is Heartstring's Country Girl. Not the best pattern for the yarn, but they're done and I'm not frogging them!
