WIP Wednesday - Week 13

Not one, but TWO finished objects this time! Mostly because I never got around to posting last week :-P
After finishing Morfar's cardigan I decided to take a bit of a break before returning to Peter's cardigan, and finished my Exploration Station shawl. I love the way it turned out! It's huge, the colours are so amazingly vibrant and I just love wearing it. It'll be perfect come summer when I just need something light to wear instead of a jacket (and in winter when I need something to wrap around me indoors!)

I've also finally finished the knitting on Peter's cardigan. All ends are woven in and it's been blocked, but I still need to buy and sew in buttons before I can hand it off to him.

Miriam asked if I'd make her this hedgehog. I thought it absolutely adorable, so of course said yes! I've finished the head, the body and the ears and Miriam came by last night to pick out the yarn for the hair. so it's going well.

And finally - after more than half a year in hibernation - I decided to FINALLY continue work on My Favourite Things cowl. I'd forgotten how incredibly satisfying it is to work on this cowl - it's so potato-chippy to see the patterns emerge, and though I'm not entirely happy with all my colour choices, as a whole, it works so well and looks absolutely amazing... if I get to say so myself :-D My only problem at this point is that I have FAR too many patterns I want to incorporate and far too little space left! I may have to make another once this one is done, because though time-consuming, this is probably one of my favourite knits yet.
