For reasons unknown, I had decided to knit someone a christmas present. I usually avoid this, as I tend to fail in meeting deadlines. To my very surprise, I finished a cabled lace shawl within just three weeks. The wonderful and well-written pattern is Care to Dance? which still only has seven projects. Change that, my dear readers, the result is stunningly beautiful! A closer look at the edging:
The yarn used is Tausendschön Merino Extrafein, a quite splitty, but very soft yarn. It took me 94g to knit the shawl.
Another project I have finished more or less during Christmas holidays is King in the North, a pixie hat I knitted for a dear friend. The yarn used is Zauberwiese Supertwist Falkland Nylon, a fingering weight plied yarn with some sort of extra twist, that knits up perfectly and gives great stitch definition.
Currently, I am working on another hat, Agathis. I hope to finish it soon as I broke my second pair of 4mm needles the other day and now am forced to finish that hat before I can use the needles to knit a pair of mittens. First world problems.
