October Gifted Gorgeousness

It's that time of the month when we all gather around Jo to share our gifty projects, but sadly, it's also that time of the year when I work on almost nothing but gifts, but can't show them all as I can never be sure how does or does not follow my blog! So, apart from Fans of the Far East, that I am regularly posting about anyways, I only have two projects to show you today.

First, there is Bruinen, the shawl I'm making for my grandma. It's grown quite a bit since last month, as you can see!

I'm on the 4th shade of the cake now, so if I'm counting right, I've used a bit more than a third of the yarn now, and should make if comfortably past the halfway point next month. I do believe I can get this done by Christmas, and I really like how it's turning out, as well!

Next we have Ubuntu, the blanket that was a gift to me (or rather, the yarn for it was). Just this last week, I finished the last of the half diamonds - of course I then noticed a mistake I had made on ALL the half diamonds, but there was no way I'd unravel them all, and I believe it will be just a minor visual 'uniqueness', so everything should be okay. Of course I couldn't resist putting all the parts together for a picture:

Next time, all the parts will be attached (which should sort out the crooked edges on some of them) and then I will make a start on the border. I'm very excited about both! No more making six of everything now, just eeeendless rounds of border around the whole thing.

Leonore: Both are beautiful that is a beautiful color for your Grandmothers shawl, its fun to see the Gifted posts each month.

Thanks for taking part in GG this month. The shawl is looking great, such a pretty colour.
Nice work on competing all the diamonds and triangles too!
