Embers

Photobucket

Pattern: Clementine Shawlette from IK Spring 2007
Yarn: Prism "Saki" in colourway Embers

With what was almost the exact amount of yarn I needed, this Prism yarn has definitely shot from personal obscurity into the top 10 list of my favourite yarns. I only bought the yarn because the colours were so damn pretty. I couldn't believe my good fortune when I discovered it'd be perfect for the Clementine Shawlette. Having seen plenty of other's versions on Rav, I thought I'd give it a go.

I flew through the second half of the pattern - it's one of those that indelibly marks itself into your brain. It was nice to knit from a pattern for once, instead of trying to thrash my way through unknown knitting territory.

This is yet another example of me procrasti-knitting - I have another project that I'm dying to finish. My (very moveable) deadlines seem to uh... keep moving. I want pictures with the pretty lilac trees before the sun burns them up!
*Wish me luck*

That is gorgeous! Very nice knit. As for the moving deadlines, I hear ya! However, lilac bushes blooming is not a moving deadline, so I've got my fingers crossed for ya!
