Laminaria, a work sort of in progress :)

I'd thouhght I'd write a post about one of my many WIPs. The knitting I'm actually doing just now is secret deadliney stuff, so I can't write about it, but I have one or two other things waiting in the wings. I think it'll only take another 3 or 4 days till I'm finished what I have to do, then I can get onto some creating that I can actually write about!

So, Laminaria. I'm in the middle of the first section so far, and it looks kinda pretty. :)





I'm using a yarn I think I mentioned before. I got 3 skeins of handdyed laceweight off ebay ages ago ridiculously cheap. I seem to remember it being something like £2.99 for all three skeins, but part of me is thinking that can't be right. But I think it is. See, ridiculously cheap!!!! Each skein is approx 900 yards, I remember that. So I should be able to get a good two or three shawls out of it. I already have another one picked out for this yarn: the mystic light shawl by Anna Dalvi. It's a pay for pattern, but I think it'll look really good in this yarn. I'll wait till I've finished Laminaria first.

What I've got done of Laminaria, I've enjoyed. I didn't get to do much of it before other things got in the way, but I'm going back to it as soon as they're done.

The yarn is gorgeous. Even at £2.99 *per skein* it would have been a bargain. :-)

That's beautiful yarn! I'm really looking forward to see how your Laminaria turns out (I personally find that pattern terrifying).

*goes off to stalk eBay for similar deals*

Oooh another Laminaria! You appear to be at a similar stage as me - I'm on repeat number 4 of 8 on the blossom chart - how about you?
Your yarn's gorgeous, and wow - what a bargain!
