Ok, the shawl for the Sammakkoprinssi-KAL is finished. It didn't become the gorgeous triangular shawl I was hoping for - see, the YO holes not only make the shawl wider, but also taller. Only in the middle, mind you. So it's not so much triangular as it is a square.
It does work as a shawl, but better it warms nicely as a laphgan / throw when sitting in our cold living room.
I love cats. I really do, but I don't have one - and propably won't for a while, due to my life situation. A while back my need for a cat became too big, and I started to knit a cat. Today I finished him.
I'm stash busting this year, and the quickest, funnest way I can do that is knitting funky scarves. I have made many of these already, with different yarns and needle sizes, and while I had nothing really easy to knit on Friday (I wanted just something really really easy!) I started a new scarf. I finished it on Sunday. Here it is.
I haven't been very productive a knitter last week, there's quite lot of stress at work, and so many other things to do than knitting. However, Easter came and helped to conquer the knitting deficit. Here some FOs to show, both finished during Easter.
After I knit one cat bed for charity / animal shelter before Christmas, I decided I will definately need to make more of them - they are fun, use up fun fur and novelty yarns, plus they are for a good purpose. I hope to give this to a local no-kill shelter as soon as possible. The bed is shown here with a toy pig, as unfortunately I don't have a cat who could model it.
When in Germany during last Christmas holidays I stocked up on sock yarn (as shown in an earlier posting). I also bought Regia Galaxy, self striping yarn which will make little 'galaxies' in the sock; little rings of Jupiter so to say. It must be the coolest idea ever, this yarn!
