I haven't been feeding my blog lately; rather I've been busy knitting and getting things ready for the various fiber fairs. So a few pictures of things finished.

Secret of Bad Nauheim, designed by Monika Eckert of . The shawl is big and ample enough for a taller person. Knit with Knit Picks Shadow, color is Campfire. The shawl is based on the Jugendstil architecture of Bad Nauheim.

Knitted-on border. Not true color. Color is somewhere between this photo and the first one.

Larger view of shawl, showing main panel with border. This shawl had been finished for some time, but I had not blocked it until last week.

Fancy Fullness, designed by Birgit Freyer of . Triangular shawl. This photo shows the edging which is knit at the same time as the rest of the shawl.

Center portion and top edging of shawl.

View of whole shawl. Shawl was knit with Rockin' Sox by Plymouth.
This is a reincarnation of a previous version knit with Knit Picks Gossamer. I've tried the same Gossamer yarn now two times, once for the Fischer-un-sin Frau and for Fancy Fullness. I did not like the way the yarn is colored for either shawl and both got frogged. While writing this, I finally came up with a suitable shawl for the slightly garish Gossamer--a Clapotis. Since I gave my first one to my middle daughter, I think I'll knit myself another one.

"Knit On!"
