Back from my first trip of the season to my beloved shack on an island, and for once I was very disciplined in packing my knitting: I didn’t take my usual 5 to 7 projects (really, I usually do!). I only took 3. One that will be in progress for quite some time, one nearly finished, and one I was anxious to begin.
So, here’s the one I finished, the Landscape Shawl/Scarf (this is the scarf version) from Fiber Trends, done in Chaiten, a hand-painted DK-weight silk from Araucania.
And here is the on-going project, a patchwork baby blanket in Debby Bliss Ecobaby, which is a fine (25 stitches to 4 inches) fair trade organic cotton. The blanket is the one on the cover of the Ecobaby book.
Finally, the project I couldn’t wait to start was the Bermuda scarf in Taiyo Sock. This color (like many other Noro colors!) just fascinates me. I’ve made more progress since this photo was taken (a 9-hour car ride has some advantages) and we’ll show that to you soon.
