My Half the Knit Sky shawl is coming along pretty well! There are about 40 – 50 rows left, though of course they are all long ones 🙂 I am really enjoying this project – just enough variety to keep it interesting, but it’s not insanely complicated.
After a little bit of a false start last week ( I was doing the star trails AND the star stitches wrong), I am making good progress on my Half the Knit Sky shawl 🙂 There is just enough variety to keep it interesting, but it is pretty straightforward knitting. The star stitches were new,… Continue reading Wednesday WIP
With Niazuma done, I only have a pair of socks going, so needed to start something else. I was stuck between a couple of options, and somewhat typically picked two things that weren’t even on the list! I am starting another sweater, the Shelley Summer Top, which I am making out of some yarn that… Continue reading What’s Next?
My Temple of Flora shawl has finally gotten to where it is divided out for the fronts! From here, I knit the front wings, which stay straight down the middle but continue to expand to the sides. Then when those pieces are finished, it gets a collar that has some nifty short row shaping. And… Continue reading Temple of Flora
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. Although it hasn’t been long stretches of time all together, since I started I’ve… Continue reading Perfect Blend: An Odyssey
Well, four rows of garter short, but I feel like I can call it close enough for a photo. The two pattern bands of Clue 3 are done, and that’s always the moderately challenging part. The second pattern band this week was the Cross Stitch knit stitch, also called the Indian Cross Stitch. I have… Continue reading PB Shawl – Halfway There!
I’m halfway through Clue 3 of my Perfect Blend MKAL, at which point it will be halfway done! Clue 3 is continuing on the theme from clue 2 of alternating an interesting stitch pattern section with a garter stitch section. The stitch patterns are just enough to keep from being boring, while being difficult. Pretty… Continue reading PB Shawl – Almost to the Halfway Point
I’m afraid nothing like as exciting as the used book finds happening yesterday or today – just plugging away at my Find Your Fade. My intention was to just go at it until it was done, but I might die of boredom before that happens. It’s 8 more rows of garter, then 18 rows of… Continue reading Fading Away
