Lots of Knits

Lots of "stuff" going on these days.
New windows going in the Castle.
New stray dog at the Castle.
New home for stray dog.
Same stray dog comes back to the Castle.
Making friends with the neighbor kids.
Hay baling.
Hay hauling.
State Fair attending.
Hot Air Balloon admiring.

Each of the above could have it's own post.
And maybe someday.
We'll see how motivated I get!

But for now, let's get the important stuff.
The knitting.

Wild Vanilla for Princess #3

A wonderfully unique sleeveless sweater with
cables and fun shaping.
Yarn:  Knit Picks Andean Silk (sadly discontinued)
Pattern:  Wild Vanilla by Elena Nodel

Another lace shawl mystery knit.
I am addicted to these KAL's.
This one was knit from Dye For Yarn's Tussah silk.
Love, love, LOVE their yarn.
I used size 5 Muyuki glass triangular beads in a mix of blues.

Out of Darkness Shawl by Bev Gardiner

Her shawl patterns are excellent for beginning lace knitters.
Great, easy to understand instructions, with
gorgeous, end results.
The picot border took "for-esser" (as the Prince would say)
but was oh, so worth the day of binding off that it took!
