Feeling very productive today.
I credit the beautiful crisp day for the found energy, enthusiasm and focus. Temps in the 60's, it awesome out.
I have been knitting, listening to an audiobook, swatching with Wollmeise Lace Garn, blocking and a whole host of other chores. I love productive days!
To started getting ready for winter, I need to reblock most of my lace wraps, which can be quite the process, (I have a few). Since the weather is so nice, I am taking advantage of getting this blocking project started (with the help of Xander).
The knitting of my Perpetua (Red) Lace Wrap & Scarf pattern design is nearly complete. And with fingers croseed, I will be updating its completion sooooon. (no updated pictures today)
A while ago, I ended up frogging my second Carlisle, only because the Wollmeise laceweight yarn I was using was slightly too thick for this project. Carlisle really needs a thinner yarn to pop the pattern.
This led to lots of swatching, frogging, more swatching, more frogging......
Until blocking my Portofino Wrap (above).
I have wanted to knit another Portofino Wrap for quite some time (can't lie, I really love this pattern). But it had fallen down pretty far in my queue of projects. So after blocking, I gave it a shot in the Wollmeise and its going to look super great on a US #4 (3.5mm) needle. I really can't wait to get started. Anyone interested in a KAL? I'm game.
Hope you are having a wonderful day!
