Yes, I do still knit. Occassionally, I even finish things. When I do not blog regularly, I am truly terrible about documenting the few projects I do finish. A perusal of my Ravelry projects shows quite a few no photo projects. As I wear my collection of handknits this winter, I plan to take pictures of them so that my Ravelry projects become a useful history of what I do accomplish.
Pattern: Cirrus by Fiber Dreams
Yarn: Alchemy Haiku in Red Run (33 C)
Notions: US 6 needles
Time: September 27 - December 8, 2014
Comments: My scarf is 7 repeats wide instead of the 5 called for in the pattern. I prefer wider scarves, and the Haiku put up is longer than some other silk-mohair yarns. I worked 25 or 26 repeats—until I ran out of yarn.
I started this project one weekend when I was uninspired by the projects I had handy and David was out of town. I wandered into my studio and looked at the shelves of yarn and a skein of red dove off the shelf into my hands. The lace has a cable cross with a double decrease which gives the finished fabric a bit of body you don't usually get from silk-mohair laceweight. It makes the finished scarf even more cuddly. I look forward to adding it to my rotation of scarves this winter.
