I am currently in looove with the “Great Divide Shawl” that @shelleyknits knitted using one skein of brown Madelinetosh and one skein of my super happy colorway “Ammolite”… What do you think? Of course it is a #colorispower moment! No?

I just finished my shawl (still being blocked, hence the towel and pins) which I honestly just started because I wanted to have Deus Ex themed knitwear. The pattern is called Apis Dorsata. Bee symbolism!
The pair of gloves bears the neuropozyne logo and I came up with that pattern myself. It’s just plain black fingerless gloves with the logo on the neuropozyne boxes, so it honestly wasn’t that much of an effort. . Since the chemical structures and hexacombs look similar - even more bee symbolism! I never got around to posting a refined version of the pattern (work got in the way, then my brain went oo, shiny and I did other stuff)
And since the trailer for Mankind Divided just came out, I figured I’d share in my enthusiasm that way since I can’t afford a ps4 in order to play anyway.
Here’s the third sample we photographed while Laura Nelkin was in town. This was also the shop sample the store owner wore all weekend. It’s a gorgeous knit! It’s completely opposite of my style, but I can certainly appreciate the work that goes into something like this. There’s an awful lot to keep track of on a project like this! But the end result is spectacular.
Branda-nîn (‘Border-water’) was the wide river that separated
Buckland from the Shire. It was known to the Elves as the Baranduin,
meaning simply ‘large brown river’, in reference to its golden brown
waters. The Hobbits’ original version of the Elvish ‘Baranduin’ was
Branda-nîn, a word meaning ‘border water’, because the river formed the
eastern border of the Shire. Over time, this name mutated further,
becoming ‘Bralda-hîm’, meaning ‘heady ale’, and it is this later name
that forms the basis of the anglicised version ‘Brandywine’.
This sucker has taken me a solid year to complete. greaseonmymouth gifted me the yarn, and I cast on basically immediately, but every time I’ve been commissioned to do something else, I’ve set this one aside, so it has been knit at a rate of, like, one pattern repeat a month.
