Don't get too enthusiastic. The pics aren't that great.
My beaded Diamond Fantasy shawl is done like yesterday's dinner.
The beads are there...trust me.
Pattern: Diamond Fantasy Shawl
Designer: Sivia Harding
Yarn: Knitpicks palette in white [splits like crazy]
Other: 4 trillion beads [of which 3.98 trillion were lost in places I can't even fathom. I'm just thankful I don't have any lodged in me bum]. My beading rows were 44 and 54. I ended up only knitting 9 repeats of the chart because, wonder of wonders, I ran out of beads!
I also finished up one Trekking #78 sock.
and I immediately cast on for the second. I really luvva, luvva, luvva this colour and knitting these up. I'm also trying the band heel for the first time. It is still a heel flap, but the construction is such that you don't have any gusset decreases. Clever, huh?
Okay, so this next one isn't so special. I think just about every knitter is making or, has knit, has seen, has plans to knit, etc...the ballband dishcloth and I'm one of them.
Nothing like a little mindless, yet interesting knitting. [Yea, I'm easily amused]
It's the long weekend folks. Stay safe and have a good one. I'll leave you with my daughter's first drawing. [she has drawn before, but it, ahem, never looked like much]. But this, this is a masterpiece! A picture she drew with her own two little hands of her dad.
It looks just like him.
Keep On Knitting...
P.S. Deb, bring on the drool baby!
