What's Off the Needles

About the only good thing I can say about Winter is that it's good for getting in some time with the needles.

Here's a simple yoked cardigan (the Tea Leaves Cardi) in the lovely Malabrigo Rios. It's a Superwash yarn, which gave me a fright because it loosened up so much in its bath after being finished that it would have fit an elephant. I did a little fast research, and upon some advice threw it into the dryer, where it tightened up back into shape.

I also made another "198 yards of Heaven" shawl, this time in Silk Garden.

The blue cabled cardigan (out of some Misti Alpaca that I'd had sitting around for a few years) where the cables felted slightly was salvaged by some gentle tugging. I decided to not add buttons, and instead use a filigree pin for a clasp.

Last month I did another shawl, using the Forest Canopy pattern with Malabrigo Silky Merino. This is beautiful yarn, as you can see in the detail photo.

Finally on the last square of the Paintbox Log Cabin blanket. Next up is the miles of black garter stitch to bind them all together.

Now, shall we take bets on if I can be a monogamous knitter and not begin another project until I finish the blanket? Nah, didn't think so. I have my eyes on a short sleeved diamond-lace on the yoke cardi for Spring, using some red silk/cotton in my stash...
