My begonia shawl is done, in all its frilly wonder. I managed to finish it just in time to get points in this round of Nerd Wars.
In case you don’t recall, this was the yarn I got from Bohemia Fibers, custom dyed to match the colors of the Mystic Mountain portion of the Carina Nebula.
OK, it lacks the orchid tones, but the green/orange thing works well, and I like the way the pattern swirls. Not too busy after all, but we’ll see how much I actually wear it now that it’s done.
I’ll be knitting the Maryland Flag socks for a while. I had to rip out the toes (started with too few stitches for his feet) and have finished the increases (he has long toes!) I’ll be doing circular stockinette for a while, the aim is to wait until I’ve at least reached the heel turn before I start a second WIP, but if I get really bored I might start something before then.
Didn’t win the $25 of Quince and Co from Design Diary, and there’s no word yet about the sweaters worth of watershed from the Harrisville Design blog. No new contests this time.
