It seems like all I show you are works-in-progress, but I do occasionally finish things, it just seems to take forever to block and photograph. This week’ s WIP is the 5-Way Cabled Shrug by Lily Chin.
The yarn I’m using is Manos silk blend (merino/silk). It is a kettle dyed dark chocolate brown, it has lovely variations in color. I’m having a hard time getting the color to come out correctly in the photograph (it’s actually closer in color to the border on the photo). Again I bought it at my favorite local yarn shop, Babetta’s.
I’ve done cables before but this is the first one that has so many going on at one time, it’s challenging to keep it all straight. I’m using my favorite needles – Knit Picks Options Harmony Wood Circulars
. They are beautiful, warm, smooth (without being slippery) and they have lovely points.
Thanks for all the love last week on my shawl storage
, it’s fun to be able to have them all out in view.
I hope everyone has a good week, see you all next week…
