love. Love. LOVE my Glitz at the Ritz shawl!
All my mess-ups and tear-outs were totally worth the final product:
Even the really, really, really long beaded picot bind-off that took 80 hours. Not really 80 hours. It took three quarters of a Lifetime Christmas movie.
Made with Periwinkle Sheep Watercolors sock yarn. 75% merino wool, 25% nylon. 460 yards/100 grams.
And also, I finished a Loved knitted crown:
Now I have two, ready to give at Christmas.
And finished my Sweet Tomato Heel socks:
And worked on and sent off my next Travelling Socks:
One more set to go, then I’ll get mine!
Super basic and super quick to knit. It was hard on my hands, though, and I found out later it was because I was using a smaller needle than the pattern called for. Duh. But, it resulted in a very dense and therefore very warm hat! After the festival is over, the hats and mittens will be donated to a local shelter. Bonus!
Lots of finishing. Now on to lots of starting,,,,
