About a year and 3 months ago, I bit off more than I could chew. I didn't know it at the time, of course, but I took on more than I could handle when I held this giveaway and awarded 6 prizes. :) Don't get me wrong - I'm not sad at all about the giveaway. I was just so excited to get the chance to knit six different shawl designs by Kirsten Kapur that I jumped right in. I'm ashamed to admit that till now, I had only finished two shawls. Only two out of the six.
In a bid to cleanse away a bit of that shame and get the gifts to the recipients, I've finally finished two more of the shawls. They are both knit from the Snow Drops and Snap Peas shawl pattern (that was the winner if I recall. A lot of people loved it.) The red version is knit in the Hollyberry colorway of KnitPicks Swish DK. I started the shawl in October last year, and just finished in June this year. Tsk tsk tsk...bad bad Denise. :) I also finally got my schedule to line up with Lilia's (the model) and Irene (the photographer), so I have really beautiful pictures this week!
The second one was knit in the Nasturtium colorway of the Quince & Co Chickadee. It came out looking quite beautiful too! I think the pictures speak for themselves. Thank you Irene and Lilia!
I have to say that I'm super excited on the days when I get to share such projects with you, accompanied by lovely photos that do justice to the pattern and the yarn. I hope you loved these as much as I do. See you next week!
PS: To the winners Anuli and Reema, please email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your addresses so I can send you your shawls. :)
