travelling woman

Oh, my, 20 days without a post! Well, it has been an incredibly busy time, and it is still being so! Work and family are demanding at the most, but I was lucky to have friends visiting (and expecting a few ones soon) and also some good things happening in the deluge of things.
Knitwise I have been productive, and I have several projects on the needles right now!

I managed to finish something for a dear friend respecting an important deadline, and I'll be able to wrtite about it soon.

Today I show you my last shawl, traveling woman by Liz abinante.

P1010109

It is a simple and effective patern, well written and clear.

P1010111

Photos are bit bad, but I took them with my little snapper (forgot the camera at my parents, this is the signal of how tired I am: HOW could I?).

The wool I used is Araucania Ranco Multi, and I'm very pleased of it: nice colours,
In order to use it all, I bound off at the very last moment, and of course the wool finished before the end of the shawl...

But I went to my trusty compuer and visited the yarn halot for a nice solution

the crochet cast off saved me beautifully.

Come mi piace! E' un po' che ce l'ho in coda e mi toccherà... Grazie anche per la soluzione al filo corto in chiusura!

Ossigur....è splendido! Non sai da quanto vorrei fare anch'io il Travelling...ma qui a Trieste una lana del genere non si trova per niente...mi sa che devo cominciare ad ordinare online!
