Hi, my dear readers ♥
Today I want to show you two quick summer knitting project I finished recently ♪
Both have something special in them.
The first one is Cable Braids Headband which is the very first pattern created by Han and published on Ravelry *o* ! I started working on it right after it was published and literally picked the first yarn leftover I found =D And it happened to be my favourite Drops Delight in colorway n.10 ♥ So now it matches perfectly with the "Japan Shawl" I made of it as well !
The pattern is super-easy, quick and perfect for anyone who would like to start with something more complicated than just basic garter stitch... for example - my favourite - cables !
The second project was really spontaneous, because I had no plans for knitting a bolero and then suddenly magical ffrench released a new "Shelob" pattern and I fell in love with it ♥
Not only it has LOTR-related name, but it was also perfect yardage for the skein of handspun lama yarn I bought on medieval fair at the beginning of summer ♪
Again, this pattern is super-easy, quick and fun, so I really recommend it to beginners... for example as the first lace project =)
I finished it just on time for Kaltenberger Ritterturnier, but just in case of bad weather we took some photos of it few days earlier, combined with "normal" clothes.
(I'll show you the fantasy version in the post about Kaltenberg ♪)
(what a beautiful tan I have this summer >_<)
Now I'm working on ehm... four projects at once =D
The "Spark of Grey" shawl is very slow progress, but I'm working on it... then a Hufflepuff lace shawl from the softest yarn I ever used.... "Nix Hoodie" full of perfect postapocalyptic imperfections and... a secret tiny little project for one tiny little human ♪
Have a beautiful day, everyone ♥
... and knit faster, winter is coming !
