Some cool things got ordered and came in the mail. First up – Eiffel Tower scissors! Aren’t they cute?
They remind me of my trip to France last year!
and then some fun things from Mason-Dixon Knitting came – a set of their Field Guides at a really good price! You get both the print books and e-books as well.
So small and cute! Such great patterns!
The one I’m looking at right now is from Field Guide No. 3 – Wild Yarns, it’s a scarf called the Colorwash Scarf, which is a fun easy knit that I can take on my trip to SoCal. The pattern calls for two colorways of fingering sock yarn, they don’t have to have a lot of contrast. I rummaged into my stash and came up with two options:
Option 1: Anzula Nebula in the Minty Unicorn Colorway (left), and MadelineTosh Tosh Sock in the Filigree Colorway (right)
Option 2: Fable Fibers folktale in the Asheville color way (left) and Anzula Milky Way in the Emerald color way (right)
If you’re reading this, go ahead and vote on which option you think I should use:
I’m chugging away at knitting more Knitted Knockers. I particularly like the silver and pink version (a way to use up scraps).
Finally, I found a home for my shawl – it’s a color that I don’t like. My hairdresser, Camille, is a great recipient – she’s lovely, looks good in this color, and she appreciates the hand knits!
