WIP Wednesday: Purple Froth
Despite all my talk about cleansing my knitting palate with unselfish knitting, I've cast on for something for me.
It doesn't look like much yet, but it will be an Annis. This is my first crescent-shaped shawl and my first attempt at nupps. Nupps evoke a strong emotional response among knitters, it seems, so I'm curious to see if I like them! Haha. I'm going to a wedding in a few weeks, and I'm hoping to have something light to cover my shoulders if it's chilly.
The yarn is Riverside Studio superwash merino lace that I bought while in Ottawa in June. The rav link is for lace singles - this yarn is actually 2 ply lace, but isn't on the rav database. The dye job is gorgeous subtly variegated purples - just variegated enough not to be properly semi-solid, I think. I don't THINK it will be too busy for the lace edging, but I guess I'll find out.
It's WIP Wednesday at Tami's, and maybe if I get my act together I'll have a post for FO Friday. (Or maybe I'll just declare next week FO Week. I have some catching up to do!
