Ah here we are at WIP Wednesday. So I have some shawl pics to share :-)
First up is my "Cotton Candy Sunshine". Named such because this yarn makes me think of cotton candy.
here. It actually calls for DK weight yarn & is a baby blanket pattern. However some of her test knitters discovered it's a great size for a shawl. I decided to use fingering weight yarn b/c well I have a handpainted sockyarn addiction to go along with my shawl addiction. This yarn is Paca-Peds HT which is a wool, alpaca, nylon blend & comes with a mini skein of a solid color for the heels & toes (mine is purple). So my shawl will be variegated for the body & solid for the border.
Up next is my "Pterotactyl Gone Barbie". Why did I name it this? Because of that pink yarn. I joked with my girls at knit night when I bought it that whatever I made with it I was going to call it something with Barbie in it. Wonder if Mattel is gonna sue me now? How was that for a totally random thought?
I also got some new yarn in the mail. This is some hand dyed sock yarn I found on Etsy. Colorway is Gryffindor Roar. This I am sure will be used to make a shawl.
Summer is in full swing and Regal Cinemas is doing the Summer Movie Express which means $1 movies every Tues & Wed. The kids & I went to see Monte Carlo today. Afterwards we had to stop at the store for a few things. Happened upon a nice shoe sale while we were out and the entire family got a new pair of shoes. Here are mine:
Oh I also have 2 quick FO's to show off. Just a couple of quick washcloths.
