Just a quick one to give a progress report on some current projects. I’ve finally hooped up the Ukrainian mandala, which measures about 16 inches across. It isn’t as tightly stretched as I’d like, but still good for display. Now I’m inspired to do a bigger one, and maybe add fringe or even beads.
I’ve got another shawl going with King Cole Riot yarn, in colorway 3439 Sandstone. I love these soft desert hues. It should be stunning with lots of fringe when it’s complete. You can check out another project here that I made with different hues of Riot – a granny square scarf – and find a free pattern for it, too!
Finally, a close-up of the Kodiak wrap I’ve been working on slowly all summer. I still have 1/2 a panel, the hood, and trim to finish. It might not be ready to wear until mid-to-late October.
I’m going to start another gnome figure soon, as well. I have already earmarked the first one to send to the US.
Weather here in Korea today is perfection. We are entering that part of the year with clear blue skies, warm days, cool nights, low humidity, and fall colors. I’ll share a lake walk with you soon! Until then, take care.
