Show and Tell

Rita and Sara were in this morning to show off their recent knitting.
Meet Rita's Talulah Shawl (pattern purchased on Ravelry) knit in Frabjous Fibers Cheshire Cat. She used a mini skein kit and two full skeins (grey and gold). I really like how Rita's colours play against each other.
Knit a fun biased triangular shawl with contrasting bobbles for a satisfying project with an easy to wear result. Talulah is perfect for a gradient set, or make use of some stashed leftovers to contrast against a main colour. Use solid skeins for a different look again – so many possibilities.

Sara brought in her Find Your Fade. I think that I've shown it before but I can't pass up showing a Find Your Fade.
This is Sara's Spotlight (pattern purchased on Ravelry) knit in Lorna's Laces Solemate.
Generous and versatile, Spotlight is an everyday essential with a luxurious feel. A beautiful lace pattern with picot edging is the focal point of this stunning accessory. 
Starting with just two stitches, Spotlight is knitted sideways for a slightly asymmetric triangle silhouette. A perfect combination of garter stitch, eyelets, stripes and beautiful lace create visual interest and keep you entertained the entire project. 
Choose two gorgeous colours of your favourite yarn and indulge in this enjoyable and meditative knit.
Free Your Fade. Sara used Adelaide for hers. She loved the pattern so much that she took home some Tosh Sock for another one.

Sara was excited to show off her garments but didn't have time to block and sew in the ends. We won't hold it against her.

Someone has a new truck. Very bright and shiny. She loves it.
Whenever she sees a water bottle (it doesn't matter the size) she wants a drink.
There is so much room in the new truck. She can lay down comfortably in the back.

I'm just about finished the second contrast colour on my Bambara Wrap. I should be into the 'pop' colour later tonight - pictures tomorrow when it's sunny out. Hopefully we have the same weather tomorrow as we did today. It was beautiful out!
