FO Friday: Sweet Autumn Rays

I have an FO to show you!  Can you believe that? Surprising, right?  It’s been ages probably.IMG_0717

The Sweet Autumn Rays shawl was done with the knitting part more than a week ago, but I waited to block it until this past Saturday when I did the Blocking Demonstration that I mentioned earlier this week.IMG_0724

I remembered why I enjoyed designing this shawl the first time around, it’s simple and fun to knit – perfect for TV knitting, car knitting, social knitting with a brew or two – it’s got just enough interest that you won’t get bored, not so much that you have to pay loads of attention, and it’s an FO fairly quickly!IMG_0726

I exchanged this one with the original being hosted at Yarn & Coffee, so I won’t see it much, but it’s in good hands!IMG_0732

Pattern: Sweet Summer Rays

Yarn: Cascade Heritage Silk Paint

Mods: None

Linking up with Tami!

What are you knitting this week?

WIP Wednesday: Sweet Autumn Rays

This week I started a new project.  That sweater I mentioned last week?  On hold.  For now. But not for long!  I’m almost to the sleeve divide and I can’t wait to do that (mostly because I want to see how the top is fitting so far).

But onto my new project!

I’m knitting another of my Sweet Summer Rays shawls and this time I’m knitting it in Cascade Heritage Silk Paint yarn in this gorgeous colorway that reminds me of autumn leaves and grasses, so I’m dubbing this my Sweet Autumn Rays shawl.IMG_9931

For those of you who’ve purchased the pattern or are thinking about it for a future project – I’ve updated the original version to hopefully make it clearer and easier to understand on which rows the increases are placed!IMG_9971

Linking up with Tami as usual!  What are you working on this week? Something new? Something old?
