On Tuesday we mentioned how much delight we get from seeing your finished objects. Well, you can imagine our glee when one of our customers came into the shop with a bag full of these beauties. We thought you'd like to see them too, so we begged her for pictures to show you.
Above, you can see her Life Cycle Baby Blanket
. By now it's been sent off to fulfil its purpose, keeping a tiny person all snug, so we were lucky to get to see it. The knitting is beautiful, and the combination of Malabrigo Sock
in Ochre and Laura Nelkin
's pattern is perfect - what an heirloom to keep generations of babies cozy.
Next to appear was a Clarus Shawl
, in Coolree Yarns Merino/Silk fingering (the colour's Ocean Green). It's another Laura Nelkin pattern, too.
And finally, we got to admire Catherine's first lace shawl, Skywalker
, and what a dÃ©but it is.
By now, you won't be surprised that Laura Nelkin designed this too - that's some recommendation for her work! This is also made in Coolree Yarns Merino/Silk, in This Is Knit's exclusive Inkwell colourway.
Catherine, thank you so much for letting us feature your gorgeous lace. It's a real treat, and we can't wait to see what you make next!
