Many FOs and 1 WIP

As promised, I have pictures of many FOs. Some I've posted before in one form or another, but here they are finally complete - ends woven in, blocked and buttons sewn on.

The first is the pea pod cardigan I made for my friend - who gave birth on Thanksgiving to a healthy boy! The yarn shop owner chose the buttons. I think they're perfect - very much in keeping with the botanical nature of the sweater and a cheerful splash of additional color. She never fails with her good taste.

The second is the pea pod set I made for the shop. Again, the shop owner chose the buttons. They're also flowers, but in a more elegant and understated metal rather than the bright pastel I used for the first pea pod.

The shop owner also brought in the Shetland Triangle I knit for the shop. She very kindly blocked it for me since I don't have the equipment and I think the results are great. I love seeing the transformation lace makes once it's been stretched out. The gentle variations in the Schaefer Anne are beautiful worked up in the simple lace pattern. I had a hard time photographing this and finally settled for draping it over a chair. Hopefully, it's reasonably clear.

And finally, here's the progress on the Cabled purse I'm making for the shop in Rowan Silk Wool. I so love the teal color - it's brilliantly clear like the undisturbed waters of a lake (sounds cheesy I know) and the cables really pop in the yarn. I'm done with one side and am in the process of knitting the cabled straps.

The photos came out pretty good for florescent lighting and lack of plan-able background. The shawl actually shows up well with the black chair behind.

Thanks for the button comps, you are sweet ;)

Wow! Your blocked shawl came out beautifully! Knitting shawls (or anything lace for that matter) is not something I have ever successfully attempted.

Hi Connie, Love the shawl! BTW, remember you told me you had a submission accepted in Magknits? I thought you said, "Magnets," so that explains my corny joke about the irony of a physics student getting her knitting in a magnet magazine :) As Meredith would say, I'm such an knitiot!
