V is for… really is the project name.
Pattern: Multnomah – direct link to the pdf file. If you’ve never done feather and fan before, make sure you read the “editing” tab on the Ravelry project page, or see Robin’s notes . I would type out the necessary changes here, but I’ve given you two awesome resources that are a click away… Other than following those “clarifications” I made no modifications to the pattern.
Yarn: Swoon! If you haven’t knitted with Kathy‘s Gypsyknits BFL Superwash Fingering, you’re missing out. I have to admit that I let this yarn marinate for a good while, but when it turned up as my January personal brown bag stash sock club offering, Barbara suggested that we have a knit-along with our Gypsyknits yarns…
Oh… and the colorway is Victorian Tea.
Needles: Addi Turbo Lace 40″, US size #4. Most wonderful needles in the whole wide world.
Verdict: I’m well-pleased. I still don’t know what I’m going to do with it, but it’s a nice little shawlette, and it used almost a whole skein of yarn from my stash.
Now, the weekend and the last 2.5 rows and bind-off of Citron await. The Knight and his band of merry men are busy with their shed-raising (although my girlfriends and I voted last night and decided that the little house is far too large to be called a shed – but what do we know?) and more tree work this weekend.
I’ll slip away tomorrow for a bit of scrapbooking and/or card making, and that’s about as exciting as it gets this weekend. How ’bout you? Will you have sunshine and warm temperatures? Hmmm… I think I’ll add some walks and dog baths to the agenda too.
