It’s been a long time since my last post here. The reason is simple – I didn’t have much to say :P, but if you check me on Ravelry, you’ll find out that I released Alohura yesterday.
This is a crescent shawl knit from the neck down with a clever beginning that makes the edge of the shawl looks like it was pick up and knit after the shawl was done.
It’s a small shawl and can be done with only one skein of most fingering weight yarns. The pattern has instructions for making it bigger and a photo-tutorial on how to cast on.
I still need to update the blog with links, pages and whatnot, but just don’t have the energy right now.
During my long silence, I’ve been trying to come up with new designs, with very little results to show for it.
Don’t get me wrong, the ideas are there, the execution, on the other hand…not doing so great. Right now there are 6 different projects sitting in front of me and they all fall somewhere between meh and blah in my interest gauge.
I’m still experimenting with crescent-shaped shawls and keep on getting new ideas, pretty much every other day. When it comes to putting those ideas into knitting, though, something happens and so far I haven’t found one that I like enough to pursue all the way to publication.
