Sorry, but I got lazy again...I haven't been keeping up with my posts...:(
Lately, it seems like a lot has been going on -- Fortunately, nothing too bad though...;)
As most of you, granted, life can throw in a few curve balls, but it doesn't stop us from knitting, right? Heh heh.
Within the month, I completed two Karabella's Gossamer Shawl with Ruffles in the colors, grey with gold & silver (for myself) and pink with pink (for my sister) & a simple garter stitch scarf using Karabella's Barbados yarn (http://www.karabellayarns.com/).
Originally, as I knitted the grey with gold & silver colored shawl, our mom didn't want one, but after seeing that both of her daughters liked it & were going to have one for themselves, she decided to ask for one as well -- black in black though.
Asides from knitting another one for our mom, I plan on knitting another one for myself in the color, claret with fiesta red, so I have both light & dark colored shawl.
Slowly, but surely, the shawl is becoming a hit because my mom's co-worker asked me to knit one for her as well. (She chose the color, pink with pink, as well.)
Although the shawls were successful FOs, but unfortunately, I can't say the same for the simple garter stitch scarf.
Granted, I knitted it using simple garter stitches, but since it was my 1st time knitting with textured/beaded novelty (?) yarn, I was unsure about the knitting/yarn holding tension.
As a result, the scarf's end result is with a loose cast on & tight bind off. And instead of froggin' it (again), I wanted to see whether there were any possible solutions to salvage it.
Of course, I E-mailed the Knitlist, but I only received 1 response. Asides from trying it out, I will have to consult with my LYS as well.
In the next post, I'll try to post pics of the FOs...;) (It's WAY PAST my bedtime...)
