As part of the One Skein Secret Pal Exchange I am making something for my pal for August.
It is in the colours my pal prefers and is made from one skein and I love the pattern so it fits the bill perfectly! The yarn is Faith from Ami-Ami and c'est tres bien.
Of course I had to get some yarn for myself! I got three more skeins in different colours to make hats for me, Ed and Nick.
Nick's is at the bottom (red is his favourite colour), mine is in the middle and Ed's is at the top. I am hoping it is a relatively quick knit; I do love short rows so it should be fun.
I won't necessarily get ours done by summer's end but that's okay.
Ambitiously I pulled out the two skeins of Trekking XXL I had in my stash and I am hoping to get them both knit up. On the left is colour number 110 which I am planning to knit up in a Slipped-Stitch Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. I love this freaking book!
I haven't figured out what pattern to use with number 77 on the right but I am sure I will come up with something!
Lastly, I am taking part of Amazing Lace being run by the fun and mischievious Theresa and Rachel. They have a number of challenges planned and I sure hope I am able to post for one of them (kind of missed the boat on Challenge #1).
I am knitting the Feather & Fan Shawl from A Gathering of Lace. This feels like quite an ambitious knit for me and I must admit to a little nervousness. I am going to be confident though and I am ready to knit through to the end by the deadline.
I think I will be busy (because of course this isn't all I have going on!) and who knows what else the summer holds! Vive la summer knitting!
