What I've been doing...

This blog is sadly neglected, I know.
Let's do a fast recap of what have happened in the past 20 days since the last post.

-My parents and brother came 2 weeks ago to attend my graduation.
-I graduated!
-Became a tour leader for my family for a whole week.
-Family left, went straight to uni because of course just because you graduated doesn't mean you're "done".
-Exhibited at New Designers in Business Design Centre, Islington until Sunday.

As you can probably guess, there were virtually no knitting happening in those 2 hectic weeks. But I did manage to take some more FO pictures before that...

Norwegian Wood ShawlNorwegian Wood ShawlNorwegian Wood Shawl, pattern by Sivia Harding, yarn used 3 skeins of Naturally Hand Knit Dawn 2ply. This shawl is the case of that "perfect" project. I fell in love with the pattern at first sight, and found the perfect yarn for it in the stash right after. The knitting was fun and easy, and I love the result! I did ran out of yarn towards the end so I had to omit 2 rows from the pattern and used a different yarn for part of the bind-off, but I still love it!

Handspun Feather & Fan ShawlHandspun Feather & Fan Shawl
Handspun Feather And Fan Shawl, used 2 skeins of my own handspun. A great project to use up those 100g skeins of handspun yarns! I'm kinda wishing it's bigger but it was getting a bit boring after a while. Can I just say again how much I absolutely LOVE knitting with handspun yarn? It just heightens the pleasure to another level, seriously.

Luscious HoarfrostLuscious Hoarfrost
Hoarfrost, pattern by Anne Hanson from Knitspot. This pattern is absolutely gorgeous, but the yarn....oh the yarn.....just makes it all the more perfect. It's Swiss Mountain Cashmere and Silk, and it's amazing, as you can probably tell from the name. It took a while to get used to knitting with it just because of it's softness. It feels so soft and luxurious against my neck, I kinda can't wait for it to get colder so I can wear it out (kidding! summer please come back to London!).
