C'est Fini!





This was a joyful knitting experience. I heartily recommend Tess Yarn, but I wish I had one more skein. 750 yards made for a short shawl........but I can wear it as a scarf. The drape is heavenly; the texture is wonderful especially worn on the neck.

I have to make another. I 'm thinking perhaps the four skeins I have of Ultra Alpaca. Forgive the dark pic of me; I'm learning how to do a self portrait with the timer on my camera.

Clapotis looks great! And for what it's worth, the darkness of the self-portrait kind of resembles the dark background in those old Dutch (?) paintings :).

Well that was fast! Very pretty.

Nice scarf but your link for "things" didn't work for me. I'm curious...

Iris said...

Beautiful! I like the way your yarn creates those ridges. This will be most lovely on a cold winter night.

Lovely - I like the colors, too. I also like sloth-knits remark about the Old Dutch paintings. Exactly.

Clap is lovely! I'm a big fan of Tess Yarns also.
