I spent most of my knitting time yesterday and today working on my SIL’s socks, but will post about that Monday. The other thing I have been making some progress on is my Perfect Blend shawl. It was my lunchtime/desk knitting for a while, but the rows got too long for that, so it came… Continue reading Perfect Blend Progress
The last time I mentioned my Perfect Blend shawl here was late July, but it hasn’t been hibernating. I took it to work and have been doing a bit here and a bit there as I have a minute over lunch.

These are leftover bits from my Adventurous Wrap from Christmas before last. In addition to being a good exercise in general,… Continue reading Mini-Shawl #2, We Are Ended Now
This lace edging is not going quickly, and I am relatively certain I am not following the edging part of the pattern correctly at all. After several starts and ripping back, I could just not make the pattern in the book work at all. So I made up something that works the way the edging… Continue reading Mini-Shawl #2, I Will Finish You Before You Finish Me
