I am that parent. No gift card for end of year present, I’m so sorry Mme. S! I just can’t when presents give me a chance to buy wool! And knit a new pattern!! And take pictures!! And did I mention more wool? And a new pattern?! Woooo! …and breath
Haha! ok, seriously though, I am happy to be done before the deadline. See, Mme. S is due at the end of May with bebe deux, so I was racing a wee newborn towards the light. I’m pretty sure I won, but shhhh, don’t say anything until tomorrow when she will receive it. Those babies like to keep us guessing!
The dirty details…
Gingko crescent was a quick knit for a lace edge shawl, and took way less mileage that I had prepared for my wool.
Look-y look-y, isn’t she pretty?!
I’m really happy with the lace edge, it’s just simple enough to do quickly but eye catching enough not to be boring
It’s not quite as long as I’d like, I could have easily thrown another lace repeat in. I like to tuck the ends in when I wear it like a scarf and this just isn’t quite long enough
(Is it weird I modeled a gift?! I’m a little shutter happy)
It was also my first time using this wool, diamond luxury foot, which was totally Affordable, and more importantly, washable (a must for gift giving!), but it’s not as soft as you’d expect 90% merino to be. Plus it has a very distinct twist (spinners help me out here) that I’m not sure how I feel about. I might buy it again for socks, but I’m not sold on it for shawls.
Still, pretty purple!
I hope my big boy’s teacher enjoys it :). I whipped up a pair of booties for her new wee one too. Cause…omg BABY BOOTIES!!!! (Sorry, had to get that out!)
Doing my traditional linking up with yarn along!
