Melody

Finally, Melody has been gifted and I can show her to you ON MY MOM! :) I gave her to my mom over Thanksgiving holiday. This is one project that I was glad to be done with but learned a lot from. It was my first attempt at steeking which was exhilarating and scary all at the same time.

Without further ado, Melody.





Specs:

Yarn: HPY Laceweight in Coral Rojo
Needles: Addi Turbo Size 9 32 inches
Pattern: Melody Shawl by Morehouse Farm
Mods: I blocked this a little bit larger than the directions because my mom is taller than I am. If I ever made another one, I would also knit it wider....say 20" versus 16".

Happy weekend. It's dreary, rainy and lovely outside and I'm on a mad dash to finish up my second Kaffe Fassett sock. Can I do it?

I have never steeked, mostly because I am afraid! The scarf is an inspiration though. Beautiful color and your mom is so cute!
