Finished Objects - No Pics :-(

It has dawned on me that I haven't posted on here in forever... though I check and read the site almost daily.

I have been knitting - and finishing objects - but I keep forgetting to take photos of the finished objects!

Recently I completed a super-sized Forest Canopy Shawl (by Susan Pierce Lawrence of "I'm Knitting As Fast As I Can") done in Mountain Colors Weaver's Wool. Shades of Blue and Green that are reminiscent of new growth on a Colorado Blue Spruce tree. Gave it to my cousin, Mimi, who may or may not get photos of it for me. It's huge and pretty!

I also knit a Hooded Scarf utilizing the "general recipe" provided by Robert Matthews on Ravelry. It was great fun calling up my sister to ask her to do various measurements of her head and hands. She had no idea what I was up to! I knit both the Hooded Scarf and a pair of fingerless mitts (no pattern - just winged it) out of Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mills ( Bulky Weight Mohair/Wool Blend in the "Autum Oaks" colorway. Gorgeous! Again, no pictures!

Most recently, I completed my version of the Clapotis Shawl from by Kate Gilbert. Since I am of such an imposing stature, I doubled the width and 4x the length of the shawl. The shawl, without blocking , is apporximately 3 feet wide and 8 feet long. The designer knicknamed my version of the Clapotis as the "Clap-O-Sauris Rex" due to it's immense size! I knitted it using Blackberry Ridge Woolen Mills ( Medium Weight 100% Wool in a discontinued bronze/orange colorway. I had a 3" diameter penannular brooch specially made ( that I wear with this awesome and manly shawl!!! Pictures of this will be forthcoming.

The Clapotis is in my queue so I would love to see pictures of the one you made and also learn how you adjusted the pattern. I am like you in the fact that I make and give away things and never even put them into my knitting book or take a picture of them. The hooded scarf sounds like a wonderful present. Lucky sister.

Sounds like you've been wonderfully productive. I look forward also to seeing the 'Rex. Can you give us a review of the Blackberry Ridge yarns?

That sounds like some great knitting, Thor. I have a large stickpin I made for a jewelry class assignment that was based on penannular pins. I should get it out and use it for shawls. I did it in brass, copper and a silver mounted cabochon carnelian. [I didn't want to make one out of silver in a fine gauge.] Luckily, my instructor had a sense of humor and found "Forefather's Stickpin" interesting. I look forward to pictures. -- Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
