Updates: there have been far too many to list in this one post, so the last two knitting FOs were a shawl and a cardigan.
The DragonWing Shawl I named Drogon because the colors that I used conjured up images of Daenerys Targeryon’s dragon of that name in the Game of Thrones book series.
The cardigan is the Emerald Isle Cardigan pattern from KnitScene from Fall 2009. I named it Sansa’s Blood Red.
Sensing a theme? I am really close to finishing the last book that has thus far been published, and I DON’T WANT IT TO END!!!!!
New cast ons:
I have joined the bandwagon for the Color Affection shawl.
I had originally thought I would use dark blue, sage green, and dark green as my colors.
I started with the blue, then did the first set of stripes with the blue and the sage
then when I got to the three color section, I added in the dark green. I did quite a few rows of it like that before deciding that I really didnt like it. I ripped out that section and swapped the dark green for a dark brown so that it has a lot more contrast in it. I like that a lot better!
I also started another pair of socks. These are in a light grey color and the pattern is called Flame Wave, or something like that. I must blog about my pet peeve with sock patterns. They really irritate me. Not the patterns themselves so much, but the sizing of most sock patterns. More to come on that later.
In other news, I bought a sewing machine and fully intend to use it!
I have used it to make myself one tank top and am in the process of making another one.
You know, just something simple to reintroduce myself to sewing. It has been a while, after all.
That’s all for now.
Note to self: BLOG MORE!!
