A little Gifted Gorgeousness...

...and a lot of other stuff! I did work on some gifts this month (most importantly, I finished the Mermaid Tail), but now that is time for the actual GG post, I only have one thing to show. At least I am somehow on time - depending on timezone, it might still be the 15th when you read this (well, probably not because I got distracted and posted later than intended). Anyway, my one Gifted Gorgeousness project is Lady and the Tramp, which I got for my birthday a few years ago from my grandparents. I really wanted to work on this again, so when we went to Felix' parents last week, I just took it with my. It's been a while since you saw it, so here is the before and after shot - for a busy weekend, I got quite a bit done!



Then I had another start to work on during that lecture series I mentioned a while ago (we fly on Friday! I'm pretty excited.) This is Smooth Sailor by StrickMich Designs, and when finished it's going to be a vest/shawl/shrug hybrid. The construction is pretty interesting, but from here on it's pretty much just straight knitting. The yarn is a hand dyed lace by Manos del Urugay, and it's lovely, but I had a few problems with it - when opening the skein, I must have cut a wrong thread, because somehow I ended up with not one, but five pieces. Two are very short, so I dismissed them, and the remaining balls are 10g, 30g and 60g, respectively. I started with the 10g and I can at least do the whole 60g one too without looking at the pattern again, so perfect to work on during lectures.






I've continued working on the 2016 Halloween SAL, and I finally finished the next section. The middle is all done now, next I'm going to move to the bottom section.





But first, I'm going to have to finish the current page of Fire and Ember! I started page 8 (but the 11th page for me) last weekend, and so far I got one colour done. Many more to go!





And last but not least, I played some more catch up on the Puppeteer. I got another ~550 stitches in and I'm getting closer to a page finish, but I'm still more than two weeks behind on this one!


So, that's it again for today. For next month, I hope to start (and possibly finish) a few more gift projects again, and there are quite a few holidays coming up, so I might have more to show in the June post :)
