Combined Post - Tubey + Lace

After a long avoidance, Tubey is finished. It had been sitting there in pieces/parts for a month.

I took a breath and bound the back to the arms -



did some messing around to get the front part attached -

and then decided that the neckline really needed a finish, which I did with I-cord (and the same for the sleeve ends).

Finished Tubey

It is surprisingly comfortable on, but way too warm for this time of year. Figures.

Tubey

I still have white and small bits of the other colours left.

Lace

Over the weekend, I started the Diamond Fantasy Shawl by Sivia Harding and finished it up yesterday in a long scarf version. I had one skein of STR medium in Bella Coola - so that is what I used.

Here is what it looks like blocking.

Blocking
Not having any fancy blocking equipment, I had to settle for my Clover daisy headed pins and an old mattress pad.

Diamonds showing clearly

I had almost 10 yards left, so perhaps I could have knit 2 more rows?
