Knit, knit, knit

I’m always working on some project or another, and most weeks I talk about what I’m working on Wednesdays as part of Tami’s WIP Wednesday project. You can see past WIP Wednesdays … right this way.

I hit a point in every shawl where it just gets super boring to blog or talk about. The exact point changes from shawl to shawl, but it’s generally somewhere just past the middle.

Getting to the middle is relatively fast and easy and exciting because of NEW PATTERN! feelings. And it’s not quite the point where I’ve hit the final slog of the last repeat or two, where I just want the shawl done. It’s somewhere between the two where I’m just kind of “eh, ok” about the project.

I still love the yarn, and still love the pattern, but it’s the point where I know the design will now work out, the pattern kinks are all worked out, I can visualize what the final product is going to be, and now I’m just knitting…

and knitting….

and knitting…


and I kinda want to start something new.

Interestingly enough, this is also generally the point where I start casting about for a name. For this shawl I’m thinking maybe “Intan” which means diamond in Indonesian. Let me know what you think, or if you have another suggestion.

Speaking of starting new projects, I’m winding yarn to knit a second Kora.


It’s part of a KAL we’re doing over in my Ravelry group. Come over and join us. It’s a super low key knit along, but loads of fun. You can get the pattern here, and join the KAL here.
