I Have Been Knitting

Maybe I haven't been keeping up with my blog, but I have been knitting. Granted, it has been all for the shop for upcoming classes, but it's knitting.
This is the Ferrous Wrap made from Angora, Merino blend of yarn. Yummy. It is a huge wrap-I made the L-Shaped version (I would call it V-shaped) in the smallest size without the extensions. There is also a rectangular version so there are several version/size options. The lacy stitch is simple YO, P2tog which was a pain to do. I experimented with YO, K2tog, and K2tog, YO, but it just wasn't the same.

This is the Seamless Katarina by Julie Weisenberger. The construction of this sweater is exquisite! The yarn is Madeline Tosh DK and is wonderful to work with. I love this sweater and can't wait to get it back from the shop after I teach the class.
It is seamless, except for the two shoulder seams and the underarm seams.
The sleeves were provisionally cast on and when the sweater was finished, the stitches picked up and completed to be sure the length was correct. They were supposed to be bell shaped, but I didn't want that, so I just did the ribbing and garter stitch which matched the front bands.
Checking my past posts, I have missed posting many of my shawls for the year, I think. (Or else I just didn't label the posts, so forgive me if I'm repeating some I've already included.)
This is Sharktooth by Stephen West. I did not have enough yarn, so I modified the edging.
This is the second Haruni that I've made. I love this pattern and it is a fast knit. The color is questionable-quite striking.
This is another test knit from Aino in Finland. I love her patterns as she works the increases into the pattern so well you can hardly see them. I'm sorry that she is pretty much not designing right now as she is a new mother and is busy with 2 small children.The yarn in this one is Three Irish Girls McClellen Fingering, merino, bamboo and nylon. It turned into a beautiful shawl.
Another test knit for Aino. The is Golden Orchid. The yarn is Decandently Divine, 100% merino.

Lovely knitting, all of it, but especially the Katarina. I may need to knit that sweater...
