I finally got the needles I’ve been waiting for. You know what this means?
I’ve started Celestarium!!
Audry is a genius knitter.
Celestarium is easy to knit, and so addictive it’s hard to put down!! She’s done such a good job making the charts easy to follow.
You’ll probably notice I’ve made a modification. My preference is to only have the beads and not worry about the yarn overs. I prefer it this way – it looks more ‘spacey’ to me.
Moontide is proving to be the perfect colourway for this. I truly feel like I’m looking deep into space knitting this shawl. (The colourway, Moontide is by Doe Arnot, using Flagstaff Alpacas‘ beautifully soft 4 ply 100% alpaca. Although she dyed this for me by special request, it is available as a repeatable colourway – drop her a line if you’d like some).
Can’t wait to have it around my shoulders! I know I said I might gift this… given I’m going to knit the Southern companion as well. Do you think it would be too greedy to have two Celestariums in my possession!?
