Photo shooting with Aeolian

I promised, I’d post some pictures of my Aeolian. I got them yesterday, straight from the photographer.
I won’t post them all here, that would take up too much space I think, so I hope you forgive me, that I publish only two here. But these two are definitely my favorites.

And one with myself on it. I usually don’t like myself on pictures, but this one is really nice, I think.

All pictures were taken by Gerd Krizek in a half ruin castle. It was beautiful and really spooky there! Definitely not my last photo shoot, had far too much fun 🙂

the Aeolian shawl

Okay, before you (two) kill me, here’s an update of my current project: the Aeolian shawl

I did 14 repeats of the yucca chart and none of the agave chart (unfortunately I don’t have enough yarn, though I love this pattern). There’s only the main edge chart to go, then I’m done. Hopefully I have enough yarn (I doubt that very much!). We’ll see. So, here are some work in progress pictures:

See, I’m using a lifeline! I don’t plan to frog it anyway (I’m far too lazy to reknit it), but I just wanted to be sure, that if I f* it up completely, I would be able to go back.

Aeolian 2

the yucca-repeats. No beads next time, looks so cheesy and takes forever to knit!

Aeolian 3

the sad remains of my yarn. The yarn is great btw, it’s merino lace and a real pleasure to work with. The needles are my limited edition gold platted knit picks </show off>

Well, I hope everyone’s happy now 🙂 I’m posting pictures of the finished piece after blocking. I hope it’s going to be huuuuuuge!! Any tips on how to block such a monster? I was thinking about the bed, but have not yet asked if my sweetheart wants to have needles in his bed … why do I have the strong feeling that he will not like this idea? 🙂

the pink swallowtail (of doom)

okay, I was a bit lazy with my blogging I admit. But hey, here it is, my finished lace shawl:

and more photos (I really suck when it comes to taking pictures, sorry)

the pattern for this one can be found here

so, my first posted project, more to come, I promise (and it’ll not take a month again, really!)

the pink yarn of doom

I bought yarn. Again. And the thing is: it’s partially pink. Although I like it a lot I don’t think I’ll ever wear the shawl I’m currently knitting. So, to help me out: I’m knitting it, wearing it once and give it to a friend then, one who wears pink and whom I can already hear squeaking ‘Oh it’s pink!! Cuuute!!’

So, short first blog-entry. More to come, hopefully more interesting 🙂
