A week for completion

Spent the past week completing a few projects.

First off the needles was Laminaria.
I loved every minute of knitting this shawl due to the combination of great pattern and beautiful yarn in my favourite colour. It is one of the few times I've knitted a project in the same yarn and colour as the pattern.
Pattern: Laminaria
Yarn: Fleece Artist Suri Blue in Moss
Needles: 4.0mm
Finished off some spinning though didn't go quite to plan. One skein ended up a fair bit finer than the other but I'm sure I'll find a project to use both.
Fibre: Merino from QSWFA
Weight: 60gm
WPI: 16
Ply: 2
Fibre: Merino from QSWFA
Weight: 60gm
WPI: 19
Ply: 2
And the final project for the week was my Mini Shawl with Flair. It is based on the Weavers Wool Mini Shawl by Peggy Pignato but with a few changes and additions.

Pattern: Weaver's Wool Mini Shawl
Yarn: Muted with Green handspun
Richmore Count 5 Mohair
Needles: 4.0mm, 5.0mm, 8.0mm

Keep smiling :-)
