Some finished knitting projects

I have been doing some knitting lately. Some items I just forgot to take photos of before I gave them as gifts.
This is the shawl I knit for my daughter's debs back in September. Its knit in Kid Silk Haze and I was really pleased with it. Its light and floaty and rolled into a ball to fit in a bag, all with no creases. I would recommend this yarn for a shawl anytime.The pattern is called 'River' from Rowan mag No 38.

A pair of 'Fetchings'. Pattern from Knitty.com, tried and tested by me and lots of others. This time I adjusted the pattern to suit some Rowan 4ply wool and was really happy with the result.


I have also knitted some socks for a gift. I used lovely Jaegar 4ply Matchmaker wool yarn in pink and they were lovely. I also made another pair of 'Fetchings' in a double knit sock yarn in shades of blue, cream and beige. I'm really annoyed with myself as I took no photos before I gave them.

The shawl looks lovely Ger. Bet that took some patience to knit.

I love your shawl. It is just beautiful. I have tried knitting a few things with KSH, and not had any success. Too thin for me.
