First of all, I'm sooooooo happy!!! I won in the Whiplash September competition!!!
My kokoshnik won a prize in the Skill category, wow (right next to two cute childrens hats)! *^v^*
New month, new projects! ^^
Folk Socks KAL
Suspended for October, too. I still have some other projects, including OPAL socks (I know, I know...) . I joined the Socktoberfest to make sure I'll finish them this month!...
In the meantime I changed my first unfinished Mameluke Sock into a cellphone cozy...
The socks just didn't have the proper socks vibes, so my cellphone is very stylish now! ^^
I started a shawl. I must say I really LOVE the way it turns out! Colour changes are divine! It's a bit like weaving, because I take a long piece of yarn, work it into the shawl, then take another colour - whichever I fancy, and the beautiful fabric appeares right in front of my eyes. ^^
I wasn't sure whether it's possible to naalbind a flat object like this but it seems to be rather easy - I just have to be carefull when I turn the shawl around - I must keep the correct number of stitches. It's just the beginning, I think I'll need to make 6 or 7 repeats of the part from the darkest brown to the orange, and I can't wait till it's finished and I can wear it! (I know, I'm making it for my historical outfit, but I think it'll be perfectly suitable to wear over my moss green Autumn coat! ^^)
Some close ups:
I started to knit my first Christmas gift - for my Mother-in-Law I: the Liesel Shawl.
Here is the progress so far:
And here is half of the Emelia choker by Jen that I'm making for Anna for her birthday next week. I hope I'll finish it on time! ^^
Bag Me KAL
New bag for Bag Me KAL - this month I'm going to knit this beauty:
Overwhelmed by many different projects in August and September, and also by my felting disaster (remember: superwash doesn't felt, no matter how hard you try!...), I was either late with a project or didn't complete it, but this month I am determined to be on time and have a new bag ready for my birthday party! ^^
