I found a drawing from last October that I’d done in graphite pencil and decided to add some colour & more shading. I left the graphite there but did change a couple of things where I could.
And my go to for relaxing … knitting.
I signed up a couple of weeks ago for the latest mystery KAL with Sharon of She-Knits. It’s for a shawlette called Tuck. I order one of the prepared kits & received some yummy yarn (I’ll take pictures of the yarn and get the details of the yarn store). Tuck starts the beginning of November (Nov 2 I think) so in the meantime Sharon surprised us all with a free mini KAL (called Oh Delilah!) for those who had signed up. Clues were given every 3 days or so & of course with work & study I haven’t been keeping up. There are 4 clues & I’m just about up to Clue 3. I did include the extra rows to make it a bit longer and I’m adding the optional beads to the fringing, so that’s all taking extra time. It should go a lot quicker as soon as I get to the decreases.
It’s not photographing true to colour. The yarn is more a purple. It’s a gorgeous soft alpaca, silk, cashmere blend called Caress from evoke.
I also ordered the new book by Alana Dakos & Hannah Fettig (2 of my favourite designers!), Coastal Knits. I’ll do a little review after it arrives.
