Lots of white...

As I said before, once the gift #2 has been received, I would post the picture. And here it is...
I have knitted a shawl for my cousin to wear on her wedding (07/07/07). It's called Clementine Shawlette from Interweave Knits Spring 2007 issue. The yarn which I used was Blue Sky Alpacas, Alpaca Silk. I love this yarn, it's so soft, and nice to knit with, althought I do need to wash my hands everytime before I knit with it(since it's white). This is my first time to knit a chart pattern, since I think the pattern itself is quite easy, so the chart was not difficult to follow. I only hope my cousin would like it and crossing my fingers that she will wear it.


After finishing the shawl, I have started an other project, of course. I have been working on the Oversized Lace Top from Vogue Knitting Spring/Summer 2007 issue. This pattern called for the same yarn, Blue Sky Alpacas, which I wouldn't complain since I am so in love with this yarn. This is what I have been knitting so far...

It doesn't look so pretty now. I hope it will look much better after I block it. I have been knitting lots of white, may be I should knit with something else more, or finishing up some other projects instead 0f new ones. However, how could I resist to not touching the new yarns I bought from Webs? oh well, we will see...
