finished the linen sweater! Its washed and blocked (aka washer and dryer) but no buttons or grosgrain ribbon yet
Robin Shawl done! By Lee Meredith in Kinu silk by Ito Yarns – 612 yards
New –Tanwen by Thayer Preece, aka ilikecake, a reversible scarf. Don’t want to giveaway secret sauce, she uses ribbing to make it reversible, but I rib slowly, so I changed those sections to stockinette to add speed – need to give it away June 9th!
Changing Staircases by Trysten Molina a Harry Potter themed shawl with “Stairs” of knitting and lace that increase lengths. I saw it on Deb Brown’s Instagram page and LOVED it
