Forest Solace


I feel like I'm just zipping right along on Solace. I'm now through 5 repeats of the main chart and I'm about halfway through the 4th ball of yarn (out of 12). The charts are easy enough to follow while I watch TV and I feel like I'm familiar enough with them at this point to be able to work on this at the end of the day when my mind is mush. The wrap is almost long enough now that soon Ramius will be able to sit in my lap while I work on it and not be disturbed while I flip it back and forth. At this point, he twitches his back and is still lashing his tail around everytime I change sides at the end of a row. Some of you had commented that you liked the cables on this design - there aren't any! It's actually a lace pattern that waves back and forth and makes that texture, not cables.

Thanks so much for all the positive feedback on Swan Lake and The Wings of A Dream! You guys are great. There have been some questions about why Ramius wasn't in the photos and I wanted to let you know that he's fine, he just didn't want to do pictures the other day. He was getting his mid morning nap (the one right before his pre-lunch snooze and after his early morning lie down) and just couldn't be disturbed. I didn't have a lot of time to get the pictures so I couldn't work around his demanding sleep schedule. He's not in Hanami either, because it's alpaca and he has to be well baked to be around alpaca without eating it and the sun wasn't shining that day to bake him - so no cat in that one either. I will get some gratuitous cat (and dog) pictures sometime this week so you guys can get your fuzzy fix.

Well, you could have fooled ME!! A non-knitter who loves cables, it sure looks like cables to me!!

Lovely job!

Hey :)
I'm adoring Solace. Really thinking it's gorgeous. What are the dimensions going to be? Is the pattern going to be available anywhere, anytime?
Happy knitting today,
Kate (first time commenter today)

Solace is looking so good - and our Holly seems to have the same nap schedule as Raimus - sometimes she takes so many that she has to sleep all night to recover!

Forest solace is looking great. I've gotten my mom's solace about 1/2 way through! Lovely pattern, I use mine a lot on cold/cool days in the house.

Wow, that is pretty. I'm not a shawl/wrap/scarf person, but that's very nice.
