I’ve been trying to spend the majority of my knitting time on the Shetland Triangle. When I alternate between the two shawls I’m knitting, it seems that I make no discernable progress. Because this project is closer to completion than Adamas (read, I’m closer to running out of yarn, because this is meant to be a one skein project), I’m focusing on it. For all that, it seems to stay the same size.
Nonetheless, the skein will run out sooner or later. I’m thinking of putting some beads on the edging, but we’ll see how I feel when I get that far. I’m not sure this shawl will block out as large as Sarah’s, but one never knows with lace.
I did finish my mitts – and happily wore them to keep my hands snug during some chilly soccer games over the weekend.
Whoo hoo! The pattern is Dashing. These were knit of Paton’s Classic Merino 100% wool from my considerable felting stash, in leaf green. Size 7 bamboo DPNs. Not sure about time served – I worked these in fits and starts, occasionally knocking out 15 rows or so before a soccer game or somewhat fewer than that on the bus.
I also started a sister project:
Fetching, in Rowan Cashsoft Aran. Yum! I have heard rumors that the 45 stitches called for in the pattern may result in a rather loose mitt. Some have suggested they knit this with 35 stitches around – I went for 40 and it seems to be right.
That’s all the knitting news from here. What are you working on?
