I got the Carina yarn!
I’m very happy with how it came out, and am almost certain which shawl I want to make with it. In the mean time, I’m working on the Forager vest and cowl from Doomsday Knits, which I reviewed on Goodreads some time ago.
Forager is a simple, asymmetric vest with an open, mesh fabric. I’m actually using a lighter yarn (and larger needles) for an even more open mesh look –
I’m very pleased with how that’s coming along as well. On size 17 needles it’s a really fast knit!
Blog Contests and GIveaways
I didn’t win the Chocolate yarn, the April Knitcrate, or the Knitted in Switzerland shawl. No new contests this time (maybe next time).
