Knitting FOs (Finished Objects)
I knit the small size with 2 skeins of Crystal Place Mini Mochi (colour:108 – neptune rainbow), but the consensus on Ravelry seems to be that the shawl tends to take more yardage to complete (both sizes). I must knit tightly?
I absolutely loved the colours of this yarn, and originally bought it to make socks for Michael. Then the pattern came out and I was inspired to knit a Coquille instead, which I am actually happy about because I found the yarn very splitty, so even with an easy pattern I had to pay attention. The yarn also broke on me THREE times, just pulled apart with the slightest tug. I definitely would not have been a happy camper knitting socks with this yarn.

Next up Mystery Socks ’09 (ravelry page) by Kirsten Kapur, which, I gather, were originally part of a KAL (Knit Along), but I laid eyes on the pattern after the mystery part of the kal was complete and LOVED them.
I had a skein of my favourite sock yarn– Handmaiden Casbah– in the Bronze colour way. I could once more rave about this yarn, but I am pretty sure I have made my feelings clear in previous posts.
I adore these socks. They fit me perfectly (I knit the size small to compensate for the bigger yarn gauge)!

What is on the needles now? Another pair of Michael socks and a new shawl!
