new projects are distracting

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.

 

This week had one really good knitting evening, and then a couple hours scattered here and there throughout the rest of the week. If I had spent that one evening working on the-not-easter-eggy-shawl I’d probably be done with this section of it and on a different striping sequence. But I didn’t.

I started something new instead…

Some garter stitch, some i-cord edging, some tosh merino light, combine to make a very delightful and smooshy shawl.

The-Not-Easter-Eggy-Shawl did get some attention.

But again, only a little bit here and there for a total 7 rows or so.

 

If you didn’t see it last week: Shawl Geometry II is here! It’s got 19 uncommon and unique shawl shapes to design and play with, and you can get all the information here.

no knitting means no mistakes (yet)

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.

 

Some weeks you measure your knitting in inches, and some weeks you’re ecstatic to knit 2 rounds.

This week was the latter. If you look really carefully, you can see a couple rounds of pink that weren’t there last week, but that’s about all that’s changed.

Except!

Shawl Geometry II is here!

It’s the second book in the Shawl Geometry Series, with complete instructions for 19 uncommon, unusual and unique shawl shapes.

You can get all the information about the book, including a list of all the shapes included, and how to purchase it, here.

future fried brain knitting mishaps

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’m always amazed I  make more progress something when I’m a) only working on 1 project, and b) actually spending time knitting. Who knew.

I’ve been alternating working like crazy to get Shawl Geometry II ready, and episodes of West Wing + knitting when my brain is too fried to function.

At this point I’m really glad I chose a very logical stitch pattern for this shawl, but am still keeping an eye on the chart, hoping to prevent any fried brain knitting mishaps. Of course now that I’ve said that…

 

Anyway, I’ve been working on getting Shawl Geometry II ready to release. It’ll be available next week, but I’m offering it to everyone on the Announce! Announce! list Friday while I finalize the last bits and pieces of the sales page.

If you’re interested in getting Shawl Geometry II first, sign up here.
