Good morning lovely people on the Internet!
It feels like forever since I did a blogpost and yes it’s been a long time, almost three months. But here I am, having some easter vacations and escaping my thesis, my exam and lecture preparations and coming back to post a tiny update.
The first quarter of the year has passed and I wanted to show you my finished objects!
I took on the Boo Challenge for this year and so as you can guess I finished only Boo Shawls so far.
So first of them was my Diamond Fizz, knitted in Tussah lace from Dyeforyarn. I chose a lovely OOAK colourway called Murderous diamond doll and I’m super happy how it turned out.
I took this picture on our really needed vacation while escaping the german carnival. Another piece was finished in this vacation, my Last Dance.
I used Lichtfaden Pure Silk fingering in Mauve Peony OOAK, a very versaitle colourway because it looks really different in different lightnings. So if you haven’t checked out Lichtfaden you really should!
I used a heavier yarn than reccommended but I love the look of the more compact shawl. And it’s also my first Boo where I got down in the needle size to make a more wearable accessoire.
At the moment I’m finishing my Wintersweet in a bright red (also dyeforyarn tussah lace) with red Miyuki triangles for the upcoming gala evening from our dance school.
And it’s almost the 1. May which means the next Boo mKAL is starting very very soon! I chose some Pure Silk Meridian OOAK colourway from Lichtfaden called Rebel Rose and paired it with Miyuki 6/0, Duracoat Galvanized Hot Pink beads. Sabine, the dyer behind Lichtfaden told me she thought of me when she created this colourway. So I’m a bit honoured and just had to choose this for the mKAL. (As you can guess I buy more pinks from here than I can knit in a lifetime :D)
I can’t wait to start this piece!
There are quite a few non Boo Shawls planned but I think I’ll talk about them in a seperate posting!
Have some great days and see you soon!
