Another Shell: Katia Surf
Katia Surf shell
This is the pattern I began after I finished the Mauritius sweater. I fell in love with the zigzag cable pattern. I'm doing it in the Mushroom color, and I got the yarn from Elann. It's a lovely, soft microfiber yarn, and the stitch definition is really good. It will obviously look much better after it's blocked. Elann has the pattern as a free download.
I'm still working away on the Lily Euroflax shell, but it's nice to have something going that's a faster project. The Surf shell is done on size 4 needles, so is a lot faster going than the Lily on size 1.
I'm also just starting on a few shirts for Pearle. I'm trying to get them (or at least one) done for his birthday, and for the upcoming County and State Fairs.
