First, a quick refresh of the memory.
Here’s where I started with the Birch stole two weeks ago:
And here’s where I’m up to now:
I’m going to go ahead and add this to my WIP pile since I have now memorised the lace pattern (and almost memorised the side triangles).
So, I now have a vacancy in the “UFO slot”. Please welcome the Iznik I Heart You shawl:
Terrible photo, but you get the idea! It’s lace knitting with beads so it is not TV-knitting. This is “Sitting bolt upright in a chair with good lighting and maybe a podcast on but absolutely no TV” knitting. Hence the UFO status!
We shall see whether the next 7 days can add to my progress on this potentially-lovely piece of knitting…
Hood retained from a project (Weekend Sweater) that I wisely abandoned and frogged before I finished it.
Added buttons and buttonholes.
From the photos on knitty this is intended to be an open-fronted waistcoat but I tend not to use/wear things I can’t fasten (the exception being my Vitamin C cardigan). As an open-front it probably would fit a 44″ bust.
I (heavens) crocheted three loops to the waistcoat so I can button the hood on. The buttons on the hood match those on the waistcoat.
