passing the halfway point

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.

 

Not a whole lot of knitting got done around here this week. I’ve been working like crazy on getting Shawl Geometry III ready for it’s upcoming debut.

But a little knitting isn’t the same as no knitting.

I passed the halfway point on my green garter stitch shawl. I love reaching the halfway point in side-to-side shawls, because now the rows are getting shorter, and the knitting is going faster, and eventually zoom! it’s done.

That is, if I ever get more than an hour or two a week to work on it.

lace cables and garter stitch

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’ve been working on a couple projects the past couple weeks. None of which have been the posy and celedon shawl. But all of which have seen lots and lots of progress. I haven’t had a lot of time to knit, but when I was able to carve out a chunk of time, I focused primarily on a shawl you haven’t seen yet.

It’s a circular shawl with a lace cable pattern, knit out of the Verdant Gryphon’s Eidos in “fenris” and “blinding polyphemus.” Once it’s blocked you’ll be able to see the patterning much, much better. That’s the magic of blocking. And when I wasn’t working on that,

I was working on a fabulously simple garter stitch shawl in Tosh Merino Light. It’s soft and squishy and delightfully mindless (but not boring.)

yay blocking!!

changing up the color sequence

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’ve been focusing on the big non easter egg colored lace blob this week.

Which totally paid off because I finished this section of the shawl!!! Wheee!

Finishing this section means changing up the color sequence. I’m not exactly sure what it’ll be yet, but I’ll play around with a couple options and come up with something or other.

The green side to side triangle got a couple more rows since last week but not a whole lot of attention.
