Started: 11th May 2007
Finished: 09th June 2007
Needles: 3 mm / 60 cm Inox circs
Yarn: Rohrspatz & Wollmeise sock yarn, "Drachenblut"
Pattern: Clementine Shawlette by Michele Rose Orne from Interweave KNITS Spring 2007
It's finished! Yup! My Clementine Shawlette and I LOVE it!
Yes, you heard it right. It is for MEEEEEEE! Sure, it can go as a scarf, if I choose to wear it outside, but well, I'd rather have it around my shoulder at home. And no, I don't cross dress...I just like to look at the pretty lace and feel the luxury of great wool and feel proud at something I had created by my own two hands.
I used about 0.75 of the yarn, so I still have a quite a bit left. The pattern said that it should be blocked lightly to the size of 10 3/4" wide and 57 1/4" long. However, I totally blocked it out and I get 13" wide and 71" long....I quite like it blocked out like this. ;-)
*LOL* It seems that my idea wasn't well accepted. But hey, I don't care. Like I said, I'm not about to wear a lace shawl over my shoulders to go outside of my home, but still, I like it. I have to re-iterate again that I do NOT cross dress, so don't even think about anything stupid here.
But just for the sake of it, I'm modelling my Clementine for you guys. ;-)
Not too bad, eh?
WWKIP-Day was on Saturday. Only the KU team was there plus a German girl from
and a friend of mine. Better than nobody, eh?
So, that's all I have to say for now. Have to get back to my studying.
Have a great start to the week!
