New Waves

New waves... fresh off the needles and blocking...


Am I alone in loving lace that is not quite symmetrical? Take a look at what's happening in the corners, first the bottom front:


Then the top where the "seams" meet:

Nice, eh?

And this was coincidentally right above the shawl:


I am getting turned on by pink everywhere!

New Waves in the Square, yarn Handmaiden Mini-Maiden, 2 skeins rose. This shawl is to be shown at TNNA and will be made available for a travelling trunk show thereafter.

The trunk show knitting is almost done! Here is what I washed and blocked today:

One more brown Journey Cable Sock to go...

Not much spinning has been done unfortunately, with the close knitting deadline, but here it is for what it's worth:


Can you imagine this plied with the licorice all-sorts from the previous post? No, I can't either... hopefully I will have some newly plied yarn for you to see in the next installment...

Wow, the Mini-Maiden works up beautifully! Waves in the Square looks marvellous in that yarn. I love the little picot bind off.

The socks look great, and soon you'll have time for creating more of that lovely handspun. Yay!

I would love to see that shawl draped on your shoulders. How are you liking the new wheel? (Asking this 'cause I'm looking to upgrade)
