twins and a party


Two new spring FOs to share, as I try to finish up some WIPs.  My entry into this year's Soper Creek Yarn challenge was Shindig, a shawl from PomPom Quarterly's 5th anniversary issue.


I recently finished the tank that is meant to be a complementary garment.  Each are designed by a twin sister, Sachiko and Kiyomi Burgin and are designed to be a modern take on a "twin set".  The tank Boum is done in two colours:
I used the same yarn, and the only modification was to lengthen the body.  The yarn is wool, so I'm hoping it will still be cool enough to wear for a bit longer.  Hoping for warm spring weather, but not too hot just yet!

I've also jumped on the 'mini-skein' wagon and finished Talinum, a long cowl with a set of Party of Five Toughlove Sock mini-skeins from Sweet Georgia Yarn.  This will be a gift for a colleague at the end of June.  Mini-skeins were also a theme in the MDK March Madness Knitting bracket, so I'm glad I was able to finish a project connected to that.
I have a second Party of Five set in a gradient purple set that I will knit into a second gift for the end of the year.  Just need to choose a pattern!
