FO: Whisper Gallery

I remembered to come write this entry, and it’s still technically Wednesday!

This is Whisper Gallery.  I knit this in The Gossamer Web’s Love Potion #3 in Daiquiri.  Ravelry classifies this as “thread” and it was definitely intimidating at the beginning.  I had a heck of a time blocking this (it doesn’t easily go into a specific shape) and I still wish it was not as shallow.  But overall, I love this shawl and at some point when I work up the nerve I am going to try the wedding ring trick.

NOTD: ILNP Extra Credit

Extra Credit is a deep teal holo jelly.  I’d already been wearing it a few days when I finally had time to take photos, so there’s some tip wear going on here.  This was a little less teal, somehow, than I was expecting – it kind of reads as a pine-y green with a hint of blue.  I think I will like this more as a winter polish than summer.  Also, when I removed this there was holo glitter EVERYWHERE.

FO: Pavement

Here’s my finished Pavement sweater.  Yarn is Madelinetosh Dandelion in “Esoteric”.  I didn’t alternate skeins at all, and for once it didn’t bite me in the ass.  I made no mods at all to the pattern.   I do wish the neck was a little lower though – maybe if I make another one I’ll modify it that way.

I’m about 90% positive I won’t have an FO next week.  If this is the case I’ll do another WIP post, I guess.

FO: Hermione’s Everyday Socks

 

Hey, look!  It’s socks that aren’t plain vanilla!  These are, of course Hermione’s Everyday Socks.  I used Apple Tree Knits Socklove in the Seaside Heights colorway.  I didn’t bother to knit the heels in a contrast color or the other end of the ball or anything.  I think it’s a little bit noticeable but the gradient is so long I’m probably the only one who can see it immediately.  As usual, I knit these toe-up so I could use as much of the yarn as possible.
