FO Friday – Dragon Fade!

IMG_0355

My Dragon Fade shawl is finished and it’s gigantic!  I love it!  It’s been off the needles since Sunday.  I promptly wore to the park…ends dangling and all.  I don’t care.  I like it anyhow.

I have managed to get about half the ends woven.  Yes, I’ve continued to wear it.  Fringe is in right now.  I’m going with it!  Of course, I really should get around to washing it and blocking it.  I’d draped it across a lot of Mother Nature’s offerings this week.

Here’s a few details:  The pattern is Match & Move by Martina Behm.  I used 17 different yarns…no wonder there are so many ends to weave – those details (minus 1 mystery yarn) are all here on my notebook page.  My only modification, aside from gauge changes and the fade, was to increase the size.  I added about 10 extra rows…it’s giant.  It drags on the ground, if I don’t wrap it a couple times.  It’s definitely for cold & windy days.

That is not today.  Today appears to be a sunny day, which is good news for Hardly Strictly Bluegrass!  I’m heading to back to Golden Gate Park again so I’ll leave you with this shameless self promotion.  Just did a big fall shop update!   Check it out at www.FogKnits.Etsy.com!

Another WIP Wednesday!  My Dragon Tail (aka Martina Behm’s Match & Move) is making pretty progress!  It’s nothing but purples from here so it’s only going to get better.  WOOooooo!

I’ve got a quick project on the needles too…Baby leg warmers.

They’re so cute and tiny.   I think I can get small, medium and large pairs from the yarn I’ve got.  Once I’ve gotten my instant gratification hit, it’ll be sweater time!

Kids are going back to school.  Sweater weather isn’t far behind!
