one wip of many ...
I've had so many wips, birthday pressies and knitty news of late that I didn't even know where to begin with blogging, and consequently there have been few posts lately.
After a period of avoidance I realised that I was being a bit silly ... knitting is supposed to be fun, not stressful. And I'm only 938 invites away from the supreme organisational powers of Ravelry that will help me to feel more in control of my obsession.
And so, one at a time I decided ... starting with the utterly stunning Handmaiden Sea Silk that I bought from K1 Yarns with birthday vouchers from my work colleagues. As you can see it has sat in my stash for a minimal amount of time [the time taken to free the needles from Icarus] before becoming a wip.
Handmaiden Sea Silk is a Canadian yarn made of 70% silk and 30% SeaCell [made from Seaweed that has magic properties for your skin]
It's colourway Moss, is the most sumptious knit and is becoming the Luna Moth Shawl [free pattern from elann.com]. I'll shut up now and let the pictures do the talking ...
