Hazy Shade of Christmas

It's been almost 20 days since Christmas already! Time truly flies! Today is Russian old New Year, a weird celebration of New Year based on the old calendar. So I’ve decided to finish of with 2007 by blogging about my last two FOs from it.

First one is a shawl for my boyfriend's mum. She loves that particular colour so when it came to choosing a shawl pattern I opted for something simple. This way it is the yarn which dominates the knit not the pattern itself.

Model: Icarus from IK Summer 2006
Yarn: 0.87 balls of Sundara Yarns Lace in Hazy Shade of Christmas
Needles: Addi lace circulars 3.25mm

Second one is Mad Colour Wave socks. I was not sure about the colour for some time, but now I actually think it works!

Model: Mad Color Wave
Yarn: 1 skew of Sunshine Yarns Twisted Sock in Colorado Sunset
Needles: 2.5mm

I also want to thank you guys for your comments on the previous post. The sawl was ripped and re-born as Muir. So far I’ve completed 2 full repeats out of min of 10 and it looks great. Thank you ever so much!

Pretty, pretty shawl! I love, the yarn looks lovely. I like the dress a lot too.

I thought the socks looked great from the beginning.

The shawl looks great! I bought this pattern back in oct at the knitting and stichting show after seeing it in silver. Your version is much nicer, and i like the idea of using a special yarn with a simple pattern, this i shall keep in mind when i come to knit mine. look forward to catching up with you at Ktog soon.
