Yes, no more Knitting and Crochet Blogging Week shenanigans, we're back to all things fibery and finished.
Prior to last week, I wrote about the crocheted scarf/shawl I was working on that was using up bits of stash, as well as some serious sock yarn. Well, it's done, and I couldn't be happier with how the colors worked up.
Admittedly it will be saved for this fall, but I love how this turned out. I've got enough left from a few of the sock yarn skeins to make a beret ... which I think I'll make later in the summer.
Additionally this week, I have a completed summer cowl to share. This is a really easy Berroco pattern - Galinhos - from booklet #305. Since the living space rearrange, I've been eyeing this summer yarn and wanted to make something with it. The light pink Reynolds Mandalay is 100% silk, and the contrasting yarn is Classic Elite Flash, a 100% mercerized cotton, both of which have been in my stash since last spring. I'm pretty pleased with how quickly it worked up ... and how versatile these colors will be in the summer. I do need to break out of the neckware, however.
But that's another blog entry.
Now head on over to Andrea's blog to see what everyone else is whipping up for wearing in the summer sun. And remember - let's be fibery careful out there!
