The warmer weather is kicking in at last, and you can see this in the knitting projects on the go at the moment. Hanging out with some knitting ladies yesterday, everywhere I looked it was all airy shawls, loosely-knit tops and the odd little sock here and there. The same is true when looking at the work being done by The Monday Gang in This Is Knit. We are all making summery knits at the moment - take a look: Dixie's Lacy Wedding Shrug Ambitious Dixie is working feverishly to get an "I Do" shrug (and a Tupa shell top) done in time for a wedding she's attending in less than 3 weeks. The yarn is a discontinued one, but it's very similar to Merletto. It's looking great so far, with one and a half sleeves completed: Charlene's All Seasons Cardi Surprise Charlene is working on another All Seasons Cardi in the gorgeous Malabrigo Lace as a surprise for her sister (Shhh! Don't tell her!). A few modifications are in mind, including not adding the ties, finishing with a frilly trimming of light grey Baruffa Cashwool and adding a little lace detail to the lower back: Roseanne's Next Scribble Lace Stole Yes, she's making another one! This one is fantastic looking - Pearl Kidsilk Haze as the base with a Sari Ribbon contrast worked in 1x1 ribbing so it looks the same on both sides. The colours work really well together (and she already has a new cardigan bought to match the colours!): What are you all working on at the moment?
