I promised some knitting content today. It’s a stretch, but I’ll manage to keep my word. I am wrapping up Citron, which is NOT a Ravelympic entry, and next on the needles will be Multnomah. (I’ve included the free pattern links here because I do have a lot of non-knitter, non-Ravelry readers. Both are shawls, if you’re not really curious.)
Citron is being done in the most luscious alpaca lace, custom-dyed by NH Knitting Mama early in her dyeing career. Ironically, this yarn is “old enough” that it was a competitor in the summer Ravelympics two years ago too! I’ve struggled to find the right pattern for this yarn, but it found its soulmate in Citron, and I look forward to sharing an FO report soon.
Multnomah is a mouthful. Barbara and I are having our own little KAL for two with Gypsyknits yarns on this shawlette. As if knitting “with” a friend, using another friend’s yarn isn’t special enough, the colorway is called Victorian Tea. Gmarie also owns a hank of it. Because of all of the details, I call this project V is for…
I also expect it to earn me my first Ravelympics medal.
Isn’t Bob (the Ravelry owners/founders’ Boston Terrier) dapper?
I do have other projects in other events, but we’ll need something to talk about another day, right?
What’s up for your weekend? We’re rather giddy about the sunshine and warm weather, even though melting snow and already saturated ground makes mud.
It’s also Vintage Vegas time! I promise a photo of my attire. I ended up purchasing a total of five dresses in the last week, although only two were with this gala in mind. As a result, I have a lovely, lacy spare that I vow to get altered in the next few weeks so I have it when I need another party frock, but as of this morning, I’m going with the LBD (little black dress) I bought and a nearly pink wrap Ruth gave me when she and Jim were here, in memory of my friend.
Have a great weekend, whatever you do!
