I've been saving these up until I had enough for a mini spam. :) I've been knitting like a demon this (Southern Hemisphere) winter and I have a few things to show for it. Millions more photos at the relevant project pages ...

Here are 3 more shawls I've done this year. One didn't count for the 12 Shawls in 2012 challenge (because the version I made didn't use enough yardage).

First up: The Age of Brass and Steam Kerchief (this one didn't use enough yardage for the challenge). If you are on Ravelry and hunting for a quick easy knit, I'd suggest this pattern. It's fun, has enough of a pattern to not be boring and looks good in any color.

Juneberry Triangle was my first Jared Flood pattern and won't be my last. I loved knitting this although I did think I'd never get to the end of the knitted edging!

TRadiance was knit for a friend who retired this year. She's a beginning knitter and I knew she'd appreciate getting a hand-knit gift.

I finished and blocked this at my parents' place a week ago, but today was a good day for my dad to bring it round to my place because I've just sucked it up and admitted that the jumper I was 3/4 of the way through was going to be way, way too big, and cast on to reknit it. Sigh.

So it was very nice to get a reminder of this FO. It's a square blanket based on the deservedly popular Adamas Shawl.

Hey mods - tags for blankets and lace would probably be useful. :)

Last week, I was trying to sort through my stash and found some nice white fingering yarn. I browsed Ravelry for a while and so, a shawl was born. I've never finished a lace pattern like this before, so I'm quite pleased with myself.

I've finished my Ravelympics Ishbel shawl! It's now pinned out on the bed, and will shortly be either flipped over and repinned, or (more likely...) covered with another towel so I can steam press it to block it. (It's acrylic - so sue me - so it can't be wet-blocked as normal.)

This one is called "198 Yards of Heaven". I, erm, was dared to make it. I dared [personal profile] kniteracy to make one over the weekend; then I realised I'd just been given some wool of about the right weight for one, and printed off the pattern and tucked them away together, and then she dared me back. I finished mine at 2.30pm yesterday, having cast on late Friday afternoon; she had a few more things to concentrate on over the weekend, but will almost certainly have finished it by tomorrow.

Here be pictures! )

Having finished it yesterday, I'm now blocking it or attempting to, at least - since it's acrylic, it may not work, though I hope I don't have to try and steam-iron it!

Here be pictures... )

Ysolda Teague's 'Damson' shawl, that is. Finished it yesterday, went out today and bought a set of foam 'jigsaw' mats to block it on.

And here it is! )

I started knitting... four weeks ago or so. Knitting two dishcloths and then I saw a gorgeous lace scarf patterns and thought "hey, why not do that"? I frogged my first 4 attempts, but the end result was this:

I've just moved, and my new office is amazingly (read: overly) air-conditioned. I think this is largely due to the fact that they had to dismantle my heater in my office, so I can't adjust the temperature with my own radiator, but I've found a solution in the meantime!

Wrist warmers!

I made these from bamboo in my stash, and I'm both unreasonably pleased to use stash yarn and thrilled with how the wristlets look.

This is Denise Lotter's At Last pattern... )

I knit up a Swallowtail Shawl in KnitPick's Shadow (Jewels Heather). I'd had the yarn in my stash for maybe two years (possibly three?). I frogged it twice, but then from my new cast-on to completion, this was done in ten days. I am unreasonably proud of it.

I've knit a few shawls from the 'Victorian Lace Today' book (which I love) - but I have a problem.
