St. Brigid’s Day

Posted on: February 1, 2014

Today is St. Brigid’s Day in Ireland.

Brigid is the female patron saint of Ireland, and one I quite like. She was a strong woman and her feastday is not filled with green beer and such. It also signals the end of winter and the beginning of spring. Not that you’d know it round here, it’s so windy, rainy & cold today.

 

I thought I’d just pretend like I haven’t updated my progress for the last *cough* months and begin afresh. I just have one exception, and that’s to show off what my hubby got me for Christmas:

Bijou Basin Lhasa Wilderness yak yarn. MMMMM. I don’t know what to knit with it, but I’m enjoying squishing it at the mo.

On to my most recent FO:

Pattern: Shetland Triangle Lace by Evelyn Clark

Yarn: MadelineTosh Prairie, one skein

Needles: 3.75mm

Beads: Guttermann seed beads size 9/0, about 1/3 of a tub

I really enjoyed knitting this shawl. Placing the beads was a mutha though. I had no crochet hook small enough to go through them so I had to use dental floss. Video tutorials here. It was slow going, but totally worth it.

I did 20 repeats of the body pattern before beginning the edging as I wanted to use all of the yarn. I’m really pleased with it.

 

My current project is the featherweight cardigan using Jaggerspun Zephyr wool/silk laceweight. Scrumptious.

This cardigan is going to take a while!

 

Good knitting!
