Well, it is Monday after all ...
Despite the fact that today is Christmas and most of you have other things on your plates taking precedence over knitting and yarn, it is still Monday and that means customer project photos!
First, I have this lovely sock by Lynne. The pattern is "Country Girl Socks" from Heartstrings Fiber Arts Jackie E-S Sock Collections. Lynne used Fearless Fibers Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Citrus colorway. The photo is not as true to the color as Lynne would have liked, but regardless of the accuracy of the color in the photo there's no question that the sock is just smashing! Great pattern and great knitting job by Lynne!
Next we have a lace scarf that Debbie recently completed. According to Debbie, she isn't an experienced lace knitter, but you'd never know it by looking at her work! This is the "Feather and Fan" scarf (also available in "shawl" version in the pattern) by Anne of Knitspot. You can also visit Debbie's blog for lots of other knitting and yarn fun!
Debbie was kind enough to provide photos both pre-blocking and post-blocking, which is always a kick to see with lace. The transformation of lace knitting from it's unblocked to blocked state is nothing short of magical!
Here is Debbie's scarf before blocking.
She used Fearless Fibers Sportweight Cashmere in the Midnight Rendezvous colorway for this scarf. As you'll see in this photo of the finished scarf after blocking, you don't have to use a traditional laceweight yarn to get fabulous results with lace knitting!
And finally, here's a closeup to show off that lovely lace detail. Kudos to Debbie for a terrific job!
Thank you again to all of you who have shared your photos and please do keep them coming! I've caught up with the backlog of photos now and am all clear for new ones this coming Monday.
Before I sign off for today, I want to wish all of you a wonderful, peaceful and joyous holiday!
