FO – Rainbow Tube

My Rainbow Tube is finally finished. It just needs some buttons sewn on, and I’ve found the perfect ones!!! So here it is without the buttons, while it was still blocking.

Joji’s Fall KAL 2015 – 1 – Grey & Greens Alpaca

My first project for the KAL Joji Locatelli is hosting on her Ravelry group this year was the 3 Color Cashmere Cowl. I ended up not being very original in my color choices, as I ended up using the pretty much the same colors.

150906-WIP-JFK2015-greys & green-001 150913-FO-JFK2015-01-grey green alpaca-001 150913-FO-JFK2015-01-grey green alpaca-002 150913-WIP-JFK2015-01-greys & green alpaca-002 150913-WIP-JFK2015-01-greys & green alpaca-003

I used up some balls of Garnstudio Drops Alpaca that I’d used in my Cockatoo Brae and a dark grey I had bought some time ago and made a Windswept sweater out of. I used 3mm needles and added more length in the “green” section to use up all the yarn, and added another 2 repeats of the lace section. I did have to use a little bit of another skein of the light grey, but I’m really happy with how the whole thing turned out.

Foggy Sunday Morning at the Boardwalk

Following a walk on the beach¬†and the park we headed for the boardwalk, as we weren’t quite ready to go home yet. You can see Dakota & Rusty had fun, and they met a whole lot of dogs along this morning walk.

SpliTTop – Version 2

I liked the SpliTTop I made as part of Ovelha Negra’s first KAL so much, I decided to make another one, but by reversing the colors of the original one I made.

In the meantime I had the brilliant idea of turning this into a tunic/dress, but now I have to wait on yarn as I’ve not got enough of the brown to complete it. But I might have an idea to fix that, it requires me to go back to Ovelha though!!
