FO Friday

I have a few things to show you today!

Firstly, I’m blocking three of my Master Knitter level 3 swatches today:

MKlvl3 Swatch #7
Swatch #7 – Double Brioche
MKlvl3 Swatch #13
Swatch #13 – Double Knitting
MKlvl3 Swatch #19
Swatch #19 – lace doily

I’m feeling under the weather, so most of yesterday and probably most of today will be spent on the couch – knitting of course.  So I’m making very good progress on my swatches!

Next, I finally finished my Faberge shawl!

Pattern:  Faberge by Laura Aylor
Yarn:  Sanguine Gryphon Bugga! in ‘VW Bug’, and Dragonfly Fibers Djinni Sock in ‘Spring in Washington’
Needles:  (I don’t remember!  I think they were 5s or 6s)
Modifications:  none.

I’m very happy with how this turned out, but I didn’t really enjoy knitting on it.  :-/  And I’m not sure if I’ll wear it often – we’ll see.  I do love the color combination, though.  I think it suffered because I started it the same time I started my Celestarium, and I was way more into knitting that than this one.  But the slipped stitch/beaded section was a pain in the butt.  I got experience perfecting my braided row technique, so that’s a plus. Overall, I’m happy with it, but I won’t knit the pattern again, most likely.

That’s what I’ve finished recently, check out Tami’s Amis for some more FO Friday posts!
