My Beautiful FO's!

Aaaaahhh! I'm officially on holiday (well as of Saturday past) and I'm really enjoying pottering about. It feels good to actually be able to do things that I never get round to because of work (it's such a burden) . Why can't I be paid the same money but stay at home haha! I can dream!
Anyway, these are a couple of projects that I finished recently and I'm dying to show off.

First up is Clapotis gorgeous pattern to knit. I especially loved the part where you dropped stitches and let the ladder run (brilliant, never thought you would ever hear a knitter say that, did you?) I would race throught the repeats just so I could make another ladder haha. Anyway enough hilarity, the yarn used was Lornas Laces Winona to make this and I used 2 skeins. (I will probably wear this today when I visit my sister as I'm such a big showoff). It looks heavy because of the amount of yarn used but is actually quite light and very good for drab overcast days. It can be worn as a scarf or a shawl. I may model it later when I have woken up properely.

Next Up:

Ishbel I love this to bits, the pattern was wonderful to use and easy to do. I used Sophia (it's cashmere!) and ohhhh! how soft. It's really beautiful to wear and feels like heaven to touch.

And finally:

Teak Bittersweet Gauntlets by Laura Irwin. I didn't knit the wrist strap for these as I liked them as is. I used Teak (main colour) and Clover (intarsia section). These are going to be stashed away until Crimbo time (no there not a gift they are all mine Mwahhahaha!).
