I realized last night that I never wrote up a final post of the Colfax Shawl that I made for Corrin. We’re both very pleased with how it turned out!
This is a lovely, simple design from Angela Tong, my Brooklyn knitting instructor. She has combined swathes of stockinette with horizontal panels of eyelet lace, all edged with a crocheted border. It’s soft, gentle, and homelike.
I’ve said it before, but I’m so happy with the variegated yarn; the fabric it has created looks “homespun” to me, with a variety of bright, cool tones. Corrin keeps the finished piece in her office and calls it her Lissa Hug. That’s pretty awesome praise in my book.
Last weekend I bound off the Chromium Star baby afghan, after two weeks of consistent hooking. I’m sticking by my pattern review from last Wednesday, but am generally pleased with the end result – particularly the tiny edging.
Most importantly, I know that Jenna and Rich’s new baby will live the bubbly texture and soft yarn.
Since there’s no such thing as a knitting photo shoot where the cats don’t wiggle their way into the frame, here’s a shot of little miss Stumpy Freedom looking sardonic, as is her wont:
Happy weekend, all! And be sure to visit Tami’s Amis if you’re looking for some fibery love.
