Yes, I finally finished the Girasole. I am so excited. I just have to block it. I really enjoyed knitting this pattern. I got tired once I got to the edging and it seemed that it would take me so long to complete that I let this project sit on the needles for over a year. I finally got it back out and after getting back in the groove, it took me less than a week to complete it. I still have to block it, but here are the pictures.
I used Cascade Eco Alpaca in natural with size 10 needles.
I also blocked my Multnomah scarf. Here is a picture of it blocking and after blocking. I love the blocking wires. This is the second project where I used the wires.
I also started another pair of socks. The pattern is Hearts-a-Plenty by Monica Jines. I really like her patterns. I am using The Sanguine Gryphon’s Bugga yarn in Pink Katydid (from the bon bon kit) with size 1 needles. I love, love, love this color and would really like to make a lace scarf out of it. I hope she offers this color again.
I have had another busy knitting week.
