Hey y’all – I have my first finished project of 2018 to share with you today. (And let me just say, I have a few from 2017 that I haven’t shared yet that I will be posting in the coming weeks.) But, for now, Project Peace 2017 is done and blocked.
The shape is a big ole long triangle, which is not the easiest to photograph but I think you can get the gist of it here.
The yarn for the stockinette section is Plain and Fancy Sheep & Wool Co. Sport which was, if I recall correctly, a gift from Margene back in the day. I’ve been saving it for the perfect project and I think peace and Margene go pretty well together. In other words, the time was right to finally use this yarn.
The feather and fan section is Woolen Rabbit Sporty in the color Pumpkin Patch. (I think. I’m not actually 100% sure on that.) And it’s a really nice compliment to the Autumn Leaves color of the Plain & Fancy. And I do love to knit feather and fan. So easy and fast but with a great pay off when it’s blocked.
As I said, the shape is odd but once it’s wrapped around your neck it all works out. And it doesn’t slide off which is definitely a bonus. It was a soothing knit, for sure, and I look forward to the peaceful feeling of wearing it.
So there. A finished handknit and it’s only mid January. How ’bout that.
