This stole is going away to somebody. So this post is really meaningful to me.

Pattern: Hanami
Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr, Ice Blue
Needle: 3.5 mm Addi Lace
Size: n/a
Time to finish: < 2 weeks
Notes: I did like 2 extra repeats on the basketweave section, and skip a couple of the blossom charts. This made me wanted to knit one stole only with the basketweave pattern, which I did last month.

Dream of Lace

I hope before the year ends, I will be able to catch up on my FO reports. So here's another from 2007, which makes 2 more shawl reports to go.

Pattern: Lace Dream by Eugen Beugler, Shawls and Scarves: The Best of Knitter's Magazine
Yarn: Jaggerspun Zephyr, Sage
Needle: 3.5 mm Addi Lace
Size: n/a
Time to finish: < 2 weeks
Notes: I think I'm left with nothing to say about the yarn since I had used it countless times and will still my top choice for lace knitting. Patternwise, it sank into my brain just after a few repeats. A slight different from the usual feather and fan.

After blocking

I was out shooting the FOs, alone, so no modeled pictures.

Before my wedding, I had the luxury of time and space to block out quite a number of pieces. Queen Anne Blue Lace was one of which got pack along for the outdoor shoot.

More photos HERE.

Pattern: Queen Anne's Lace by MMario
Yarn: ColourMart Cashmere /28NM Lace Weight
Needle: 3.75 mm Addi Lace
Size: n/a
Time to finish: < 2 weeks
Notes: Very easy to follow instructions. Interesting construction, even my brother asked about it; the very first time on my knitting.

Keeping happy thoughts

My nose is all stuffed up since the start of the week. My waste paper basket is filled with scrunched up used tissue. Anyway I thought I do post up some pictures of my old FOs.

My FPS was blocked way before I own a set of blocking wires. So bear with the slight scallop edges.

Pattern: Forest Path Stole by Faina M. Letoutchaia
Yarn: ColourMart Cashmere/Silk 2/36NM Lace Weight
Needle: US 2½ / 3.0 mm Addi Turbo
Size: n/a
Time to finish: 5 weeks and more than a year to take FO photos.
Notes: Finished up to 21st tier. I'm not a fan of nupps but still I did not omit any of them.

Before I know it, October had slip passed. No, I have not taken a month off for honeymoon or anything close to it. It was plain laziness for the blog silence.

The needles have been busy. I'm done with 3 shawls and 2 pairs of socks and 2 tops if I'm able to do up the finishings. Meanwhile, I'm trying to find my way to a new grindstone since the stash master needs to be fed periodically.

I'm setting up the 4th installment of destashing. Sock yarn lovers please stay tune.

And Happy 1st Anniversary to my Dearest!
