Secret Agent Knitting Update...

007 Secret Agent Knitter

Secret Agent Knitter checking in here....
Time to reveal Secret Project #4!

(Okay, so the chick seems to be holding knives or something, SNOL, I was going for knitting needles but I don't have a good art program on my computer yet. Just go with me here. LOL)

Soooo.... Secret Project #4 was Chan's Birthday Shawl! This is the Nereides pattern by Jacquelyn Landry. I did however re-work the pattern a bit. For some reason I just couldn't get my brain to wrap itself around her wording. If anyone else gives this pattern a try & has the same trouble let me know & I'll send you the changes I made to make it more understandable to me. I also saw on Ravelry that a few other people had made some minor changes.

I used Noro Silk Garden Lite, 5 balls of it, which came to 680 yards. I have never used Noro Silk Garden before & I have to say that it is truly lovely yarn. Very soft & cuddly, and it has the gorgeous colorways just like all the other Noro yarns. Even though this is listed as a fingering/sport weight yarn it still has some of the thick & thin thing going on. I think it came out really nice & Chan seems to love it & that's what is important. :) I had beads on the edges but they were driving me nuts while I was taking the photos so I took those off. If they drove me crazy in that short of time, I knew they would drive Chan nuts too. But you will have to check her photos out for a "beadless" wrap, I was too lazy to take new photos. ;P

And now on to Secret Projects # 6 & #7! Stay tuned for more Secret Agent Knitting!
(Maybe I'll have a better logo then! HA HA!)

Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

What a wonderful friend your are and beautiful gift to make for a fun gal. I've not been out to LYS to see the Noro Silk in person. I love the colors.

Oh, I think the logo is great. If you had not mentioned it I would have thought they were needles.

My son just came up behind me and said, "OH that's PRETTY YARN!"

The force is strong in this one.
