Raise your hand if you like taking photos of an FO with yourself in it. Any?
I have gotten real lazy when it comes to taking photos of a finished, handknit project. I swear it felt like forever to get ready in-between taking care of the meal of the day:
- After I had worked out, I showered and gave my hair a full, blow out.
- Took out the cod to have it come to room temperature and seasoned it.
- Worked on my make up which I had messed up on; I was trying out a new color palette but felt it was too experimental so I switched to another eye shadow set.
- Tried out my new, curling wand, a device that works better for my fine hair than trying to curl it with a flat iron. Sprayed my hair with hairspray and lightly, finger-combed through it all.
- Bossed around the 16yo while we went through a couple of FO’s!
This shawl was completed in 2018. I had accidentally thrown away the leftover yarn in the teal color – needed for three tassels. I debated long on whether or not to order a skein, but then came to the question: What am I going to do with the rest? In the end, I decided not to make the embellishments.
- pattern: Light and Up
- designer: Caroline Wiens
- yarn: Barrett Wool Co.
- yarn base: Home Fingering Weight
- colorways: Field & Scout
- dress: Wiksten Shift
- boots: Naturalizer Sycamore Boot in Cider Spice (These are so comfy and I really love the color.)
I haven’t worn this shawl yet but I’m starting to wear my handknit shawls at home since it’s cold.
The shawl cuff is by JUL Designs; it’s handy and helps keep my shawls in place. I never wore shawls I made in the past because one side would always slide off a shoulder – super annoying. The cuff is handmade, in leather, and has two, button snaps.
Okie doke. Off to read blogs. I need to catch up. Thanks for poppin by. TTYS.
