Finish Line

I finished my Traveling Woman for the Short Track Shawl Event in the Ravelympics a few days ago but I hadn't got round to blogging about it until now. So here she is.



The yarn is sock yarn from Ewe Give Me The Knits. But unfortunately I don't know what the colourway is.



This is a very quick and easy knit - a real pleasure.




I also finished my Jeweled Steps using the Flat Feet sock yarn. I like the colour but I did find knitting with such crinkly yarn was hard on my wrists and I had to keep a close eye on my tension.



Here is a close-up of the steps. Wrapping the stitches with this yarn was not ideal.



And for the first time I tries my hand at EZ' sew cast off. I've never bothered in the past but decided to give it a go and I was surprised at how easy it is and I'm pleased with the smooth finish.
