So far…


#124

Ooooh, that looks good!


#125

(…is it Frische Fische? That’s the one I’ve been changing my mind on and I think I’ll do op-art socks with it.)

I had a hard time finding the right project for my rainbow beach gradient yarn and found it did well in the true colors pattern too. I think it’s a great pattern for showcasing yarn like this.


#126

Yes! Good eye. :slight_smile: I had tried it in something else and didn’t like it, but it is working out very well in True Colors.


#127

Finally done and blocking.


I put a bunch of pictures on my Ravelry account: www.ravelry.com/people/laurabauer if you’re interested.

The angle of this pic makes it look like the “reverse color” sections at the wide end are a lot shorter than the regular ones. In reality they are just slightly shorter. The yarns are not quite the same texture and weight, plus by the end I was speeding up and knitting more tightly because I really wanted to be done. :slight_smile:


#128

You’re going to have such fun when you get to wrap it all around yourself—such a bundle of color. Way to go!


#129

Tada! I’m very happy with how my Kite Runner turned out:


#130

Very pretty.
Enjoy it.


#131

This is just beautiful, I JUST cast mine on last night.
Love the clever design.


#132

That’s just gorgeous! I love the colors and texture of this–so cool. Did you have fun making it?


#133

Yes! After the set up and getting the pattern down, it became my regular evening tv knitting. I watched two seasons of The Expance while working on it.


#134

Omg, look at that shawl! I’d never have been clever enough to put those colors together nearly as well! Beautiful work!

In other news: My Cranberry Gose isn’t anywhere close to being finished by the May 31 deadline. An unexpected out-of-town trip has left the poor thing in knitting limbo, but I’ll get back to her one of these days.

D*mn you, Real Life…


#135

I have finished my second project : Ankers sweater, I don’t know if it qualifies - it’s Ankers cardigan that is in the bracket?
But anyway I so happy with it and the color.

next on my list is Dohne - I just bourght the pattern and dyed some yarn with some spring plants here i Denmark


#136

This is so beautiful! I love the pullover version of this. Congratulations!

Can’t wait to see your plant-dyed yarn for Dohne. Wow.


#137

I love this even more than the cardigan.


#138

gah, that shawl is pure genius, and purty too!


#139

A little late for the end of the KAL but assembler is done and I am wearing it happily on this grey Adirondack June day. I had some dye lot issues (ran out of yarn before it was as big as I wanted) but you can’t see them unless you look at it all laid out so, meh. I love this pattern and this cozy yarn!


#140

Way past the end of the KAL, but knitting projects have their own timeline :yum:

I loved knitting Dohne! Soft, squishy garter and lovely lace.


#141

Beautiful and enjoy wearing!
