Something Cozy :-)

Throw/blanket for my son :-)
So happy to be using yarn from my stash bought in 2008!!! I do not know what I was thinking buying this color to knit myself something, but it is perfect for a 10 year old's throw :-)
I would love to make something cabled, but there is just not enough yarn for cables to get any good size for a cabled throw. Started with a different diamond pattern first, but my son said it looked too girly ;-) He liked the pattern I used for Gingembre mitts. It is simple, but looks great in aran weight and makes for a mindless TV knitting. 
Project can be found on Ravelry.

 Happy knitting,

Palessie and Afterglow Shawls.

Today I would like to share few of my projects/designs knitted few years back, but never photographed until recently :-)
One of them is Palsessie shawl. Knitted with ColourMart Silk 36/120nm DK wt., the shawl has amazing shine and drape. More details ont his project on Ravelry.

The second shawl I would like to show is Afterglow. This shawl is also knitted with ColourMart yarn, but this time it is ColourMart 18/52NM dk wt cotton/silk 50/50. Cotton adds crispier texture to the fabric while silk still gives plenty of drape. More on the project on Ravelry

Happy knitting,
