Tuscany and Cables and Os

I made my Tuscany with a cotton yarn in purple. I added beads along the edges.

I also added a few rows of garter stitch at the long edge.

I enjoyed knitting this shawl and will probably make another, more delicate version.

I am currently working on Cables and O's using Cotton Glace. Here's my progress so far:

It seems to be a good balance between easily memorized and therefore an easy knit and not being too monotonous and boring. I am looking forward to wearing it. Someday.

a vegan in Tuscany

Well, my second Tuscany is off the needles - this time a vegan version made with Rosarios Bio Bamboo!

It's for a vegan coworker of mine - hence the yarn choice.

Can't say I loved the bamboo as much as the Silken, but it was still fun to work with. A great pattern as well.
