FO Friday!

I just realized how badly misinterpreted that post title could be by knitting muggles...
Alas, they shall have to remain uninitiated :p
I wrapped up the prototype for "Filigree" today and am mostly happy with it. I'm going to tweak a thing or two for the testknit. I reclaimed some Handmaiden Camelspin in the rose garden colourway for the that. I'm looking forward to knitting it all over again!
My Lazy Ripple is done too, so lazy that I'm not going to block it. It's lazy because there weren't formal row counts. This was meant totally for stashbusting and so I used every bit of all the skeins. I like how it came out and I hope there'll be some babies show up in my circle to gift it to :)

Late To The Party ~ Make It Monday

One final test knit for the Matinée duo. I wanted to refine the construction technique and I think this is best, not to mention less hassle.
Matinée I ~ Opal is finished and here is her portfolio:

So Matinée I is the closed loop version and II is open with bands at each end to be lapped and pinned or buttoned or to be worn as a traditional scarf. Both versions are reversible, quick and easy to knit. Customizing is easy too. I hope to have the final patterns finished and available soon.
Cheers all! :)

From The Main Blog ~ Schultertuch / Dreieckstuch Is Off The Hook :)

This was a "feel good" weekend for me and I hope for you too. Nothing pressing in the garden - the last few plantlings are in, I bought and used my plant start and won't do anything major again until the next four babies arrive and I have to move a grandpapasan hosta. I finished reading Dead Wake: The Last Crossing of the Lusitania, a very interesting book, especially in detailing how that incident impacted world events. I also finished up my Schultertuch / Dreieckstuch or as I call it: Pretty Maids All In A Row (for the scallop / cockle pattern).
Here is her portfolio :):
