Post Your Projects!

You know what this board needs? A place where we can share our projects with each other. I get so many great ideas just from looking at other people's projects. It can be anything fiber related: knitting, crocheting, weaving, spinning, sewing, felting, tatting, etc. Include what materials you used and if you used a pattern.

I'll start. I finished this knitted shawl about a year ago and I couldn't be happier with the results. I used a little over one ball of Schoppel Wolle's Zauberball in color 1536 Fuchsia with a US size 6 circular needle (32" cable). The pattern is called Revontuli-huivi Northern Lights and is available for free on Ravelry (direct link to pattern, requires free account). If I make another one I'll probably use a worsted weight instead of fingering weight so that it will be bigger.

This is a great pattern for beginning lace knitters. It is simple to follow and looks amazing when completed. In order to get similar results, you should use a yarn with long color changes such as Zauberball, Kauni, or Chroma.

(Sorry, can't get it to rotate the right way).

Would it be possible to make this thread a sticky?

It says your photo is deleted!!  :(

This winter I SHALL make the mate to this sock!

The problem however is I did not use a pattern, so I am going to have to recount everything that I did. The wools are mine from my sheep, handspun, natural colours.

Oops, fixed it, thanks! Beautiful sock by the way.

Thanks. It is not my fanciest, but it is my thickest for tired feets.  ;D
That lace shawl is amazing.


Here's another one. I made this for my mom as a birthday gift a few years back.

Yarn - Zwerger Garn Handpainted by Opal, 1 ball (sock weight, 75/25 wool/nylon blend)
Needle - US 7, 32" cable
Pattern - Out of My Head Shawlette, available for free on Ravelry.

Here it is directly off the needles.

After a wet block.

Best example I have of the importance of blocking. I actually wrote a blog post about blocking, if you're interested.

My mom says she always gets compliments when she wears it.
