I finished my other two projects for the Ravellenic Games!
Project: Blue Tiles
Pattern: Parquet Tiles
Designer: Rose Beck
Available: $5 for this pattern alone, or $12.99 for the Archi-textural Collection (on Ravelry, naturally)
Yarn: Knit Picks Capra in Celestial
I love this soft and luscious yarn! The pattern was not my usual “type” — I’m not often drawn to plain-old knit&purl designs. Too many are poorly-rendered, overly-cutesy designs fit only for washcloths. But, Parquet Tiles is elegant and lovely — not washcloth-like at all. Enjoyable knit, reasonably quick, well-written pattern. High marks!
I worked hard throughout the Olympics on my puffs. I’m proud to say I have officially “caught up” to my 366 in 2012 goal, and I’m currently running 4 puffs ahead of schedule! I was helped greatly by a mini-skein swap of 40 gorgeous new STR Lightweight colorways.
Project: 40 STR Puffs
Pattern: the beekeeper’s quilt
Designer: tiny owl knits
