I finally finished the KISS Triangle Shawlette! I decided it would work better as a bandit style scarf tied at the back, and I also did the crocheted cast-off.
|More accurate colour in this than below|
Project: KISS Triangle Shawlette
Yarn: Araucania Ranco Solid in black
|I was smiling, honest! But then a child appeared asking for the toilet.|
I have also decided to make a change to my list. It is not something I wanted to do, but I think I will be happier with the end result. I am removing Baktus from the list, and replacing it with Silk Kerchief. Luckily, I downloaded the pattern for Silk Kerchief 2 years ago!
There are a number of reasons for this change, none larger than the other, it was a culmination of factors; unable to get the yarn I ideally would use for it (Kauni EQ), Baktus being one of those patterns which has been removed then added to my Ravelry queue more times than I remember, not being sure I love the pattern enough even if I did have the correct yarn.
So, the list is now as follows
Endpaper Mitts - Garnstudio Drops Alpaca in red and white
KISS Triangle Shawl - Malabrigo Yarn Sock in Rayon Vert
Ayakos Vest -Magliatopia Soffstar Melange
Lanesplitter - Noro Kureyon or Tivoli Ocean
Lizard Ridge - Noro Kureyon in multiple colourways
Have You Made A Jumper Yet? - Fingering weight, tbc
Ziggy - Noro Kureyon Sock
Silk Kerchief - Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball, Drops Alpaca
Mini Mochi Fair Isle Hat - Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi
Mini Mochi Fair Isle Mittens - Crystal Palace Yarns Mini Mochi
Ishbel - Araucania Ranco Solid, Stone or Black
February Lady Sweater - Fiddlesticks Knitting Silken Merino
I will still be using Schoppel-Wolle Zauberball for it, but will be alternating that and Drops Alpaca (I think, this part may change to Fibre Harvest 4ply, I need to do a comparison of them but I think the Drops is more suitable). I feel happier with my list now, I think that I was looking for an excuse to use Kauni rather than looking for the perfect yarn for a pattern I love. I am still going to be on the look-out for Kauni though :D
February Lady Sweater and hopefully I can get it done by the end of the month (ever the optimist!). I also have some non-YoP knitting to do so Sundays may be a bit on the light side for the next few weeks. Next Sunday I don't think I'll be able to do a proper post but I will try and update quickly!
