FO Friday #66 - Well Travelled

Happy Friday everyone!

I am very excited to show you today's Finished Object. I admit to feeling pretty proud about this one.

Traveling to Nova Scotia

Pattern: Traveling Woman by Liz Abinante
Size Large
Details on my Ravelry page here

Colourway: Cove
1.25 skeins used

I had a great time knitting this Traveling Woman shawl for my husband's aunt's 60th birthday. I couldn't believe how quickly it knit up. It took me less than a month and I had a baby and knit several baby items at the same time!

The yarn was a dream and I would use it again in a second. Because it is single ply, I don't think it would wear well for socks or garments but I think it is a perfect yarn for lace and shawls.

It turned at quite a bit bigger than I was expecting but I think it is gorgeous. I know my aunt has a special wedding to attend this summer - I hope this shawl will be the perfect accessory!

I wish you all a wonderful weekend. I am especially looking forward to mine as my Dad is flying out to meet his newest Grandson for the first time!

Cheers, Nikki

  10. It's gorgeous! Love the color. You are a superhero knitter as far as I am concerned. Having a baby, knitting all those cute baby items (such a cute vest & hat set) AND a lace shawl, too?!!
    Hope that you have a wonderful time with your dad on his visit!

  11. Lovely! Cheers to many more beautiful knits, having a baby and family time! Life is good.

  12. Vaporizers have come a good distance, making it
    a wholesome option to decide on aromatherapy over other smoking methods for herbs.
    With a click of the button the herbs heat up super fast, and the best part
    is that the external part of the vape is cool to
    the touch making the handling of the vape super easy.
    The conversion takes place in a different chamber and there is no
    chance for you to inhale the vapours of butane.

  13. If you take these pain relievers often, switching to a natural
    substitute such as Boswellia may relieve your symptoms.
    However, the body acquired resistance power to tolerate substantial levels of pain thereby helping in exercising regularly.
    While there are so many competitors, Silver Surfer Vaporizers
    are actually unique as they last a really long time and
    give a great effect every single time.
