Each Wednesday, I post little snippets about what’s happening, and what I’m working on.
In complete contrast to last week, lots and lots of making happened this week.
I started my 2nd Archer Button Up Shirt, and got through the side seams. Just the collar, cuffs, hem & buttons left. And this time, the buttons shouldn’t take me weeks to put on because I already have them.
I started a new shawl! It’s my own design (pattern coming eventually), knit out of Toil & Trouble’s amazing and ploompy “merino/silk lace”. I’m holding two strands together and knitting on a US size 5 (3.75mm) needle. The colors are “Smoke Signals”, & “Apollo,” I love how it’s coming out.
The pattern will be available on Ravelry Friday, and I’ll have hard copies & the sample at VKLive on Saturday.
If you’re in or around NYC, I’ll be at VKLive Saturday, and in the Knitty City Booth (#710) at 11am. I’ll have shawl samples, and hard copies of a couple patterns (including Rosmerta, Tumbling Deco, Eirwen & the Shawl Geometry Books). I’d love it if you would stop by and say hello.
