Pictures at last!

Well as promised here is the photo of my Colinette haul:
Doesn't it all look yummy!! It makes me smile just looking at it!
Okay, clockwise from the bottom left corner is as follows - 200g of 4ply wool that looks like Jay colourway; 125g of 4ply wool, no idea what the name of the colourway is but it knits up like a sunset! More on what it's being knitted into in a mo; 2 skeins of Lasso in Morocco already wound for knitting up (again seeing as its been frogged already!); 1 skein of Giotto in Jay for my throw and finally 4 skeins of Lasso in Moss (I think).

The sunset 4 ply is currently being knitted up as 'Lucky K8'. Looking again at the pictures with the pattern I think I've not done the rib section quite long enough but the pattern seems a little unclear to me. It's probably done to my frazzled brain at the moment! Other than that they're knitting up ok. The wool will probably itch but they look sweet and the colour is fantastic enough to warm anyday up.

Now for some FO's.
I thought I'd take the picture of the Ribbon Tee laid out on the carpet as I usually do - can you see the flaw in that in the picture? Can you even see the Tee? Oh yes, it's pretty much the same colour as the carpet.

So Take Two:

Okay, it is a little blurred and I look like I'm doing the 'I'm a little Teapot' pose but at least you get a better idea of what the Ribbon Tee looks like. It was really easy to make and feels so comfy to wear that I would definitely recommend the pattern. I'd thought I'd need to play around with it to get it to work but it only took 3 evenings to make with very little sewing up to do.

And Finally (until I sew up the Tie front Shrug!):

The 'Anthologie Inspired Capelet' as seen in the photos at Colinette below. This was idiotically simple! And it only took one night to make! Had I started it earlier I wouldn't have had to stay up until 1 am to finish it but it is still a quick project for those 'I want it now!' moments. Besides, I wanted to have something newly knitted to wear to Colinette the next day and I wasn't in the mood to sew up the shrug. Which, by the way, will probably be sewn up on Tuesday night in the Knitting group as it doesn't need too much concentration to do and shouldn't go wrong, unlike my current WIP's would be likely to!

BTW - have you noticed the current trend that every other word or subject seems to be 'Colinette'? Do you think I could be a little obsessed? LOL!

Links for the above projects have been included in a previous post if needed.

The good thing about the shrug is that it's that quick to make you can have one practically now!
