I have, at last, caught up on my blocking pile. Hurray! Which means there's a whole lotta pretty at the end of this post, if I do say so myself.
I finished my Rosa Flora just in time. I only had a few days of puttering around on other WIPs before the new shawl came out. It's beautiful and, as always, very cleverly designed. I'm using Sanguine Gryphon Gaia Lace in "Memoires des Arbres."
I've oopsed into a few stash enhancements recently.
BFL and Silk Lace in "Aquarius" from Andrea At Bullard Farm
BFL Superwash in Autmun Red, also from Andrea
Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Lace in an exclusive colorway from Steven Be (this one was a gift)
Cashmere and Silk in Sea Veggies from Allison at Iridaceae Colorworks, who knows my weaknesses well.
And the ingredients for a Poinsettia Tam and cuffs - Shalimar Breathless in Scarab and Kid Seta Lux in...211 (terribly creative). You can't see it but there is a metallic thread in the Lux so it is sparkly. It's a sport weight, which is considerably heavier than the laceweight brushed mohair Romi used, but there's always a little fudge-factor with these fuzzy yarns...so I'm telling myself, anyway. We'll see how it works out!
Now, on to the FO's! Have some beauty shots of my unpinned Perpetua:
Rosa turned out lovely. The color is hard to capture, but I think I finally got close - the truth is somewhere in between the various shades in these pics. This is Ainea from Iridacae colorworks in a custom color Allison dyed just for me, me, me! (She'll dye custom orders for you too - but I'm still special).
I blocked my Lyrica Euterpe, the last muse that was still waiting attention.
My Carson shawl is still drying, but it turned out great.
Now...where the heck am I going to put all of these?
I leave you with this image of our happy married feet, snuggled in wool.
