Cleaning Up the SidebarI was noticing that my sidebar has been getting a little cluttered recently, what with all of the finished objects that haven't been properly written up - so over the next few days, I'll try to work my way through all of them!
Debbie Bliss Silk Shrug
Pattern: from Debbie Bliss Pure Silk Collection
Yarn: Debbie Bliss Pure Silk in Black
Notes: I had quite the challenge with knitting this, as the lace patterning and the decreases/shaping made for a serious challenge. I ultimately charted every single row on excel and crossed off as I went. This project marinated in an almost-complete stage for AGES because I couldn't face the prospect of sewing black silk without an Ott light... and then I just couldn't face the seaming period! But once I finally finished everything, I've found it is the perfect jacket to go with fancy dresses that just need a little something!
Yarn: acrylic/merino from School Products - dyed by me!
Pattern: Tangled Yoke Cardigan from Interweave Knits, F2007
Notes: LOVE this sweater! I modified it slightly - I knit the sleeves flat and seamed, and I knit the body in 3 pieces to the yoke, and then joined. I prefer the extra structure of the seams to keep everything together. My gauge was not 100% right, but everything seemed to work out in the end with only a few small adjustments.
