Progress update

 
You may think that I'm only doing knitting right now, and you would be correct. But, right on my sewing table is the quilt project that I planned to/should be working on now. The knitting so relaxing that I can't seem to pull myself away from it, for the meantime.

I finished the Summer Mystery Shawlette that I talked about last time. It went pretty quickly. Then again, it is kind of small. I guess that's why it's called a shawlette. 


Last year I had started a different shawl from a rainbow variegated Schaefer Anne yarn that I wrote about buying here. Some time ago, I pretty much decided that I didn't like the way it was coming out. So, I undid the whole thing two days ago.

During


After - now I have 560 yards of fingering yarn in my favorite rainbow combo that I really want to make something with. While I did start on something, I am entertaining other ideas. I DO NOT want to make socks! The thing that I started, the beginning is very complicated. So far, I thought I was doing OK, but now I'm in the process of undoing part of it. The pattern writer admits that the beginning is tricky. If I get it to work out, I'll continue and take a picture.


Happy Wednesday,


Debbie

  1. The finished shawl is amazing! No wonder you are knitting so much.
    Can not weight what you will make with your "new" yarn.

  3. So good to see your latest post. Yarn is as much fun to look at as fabric.

  4. I love the shawlette ... enough that I ended up surfing around Ravelry to see some others from the KAL. I love the color you used.

    I don't know how to wear those little shawls ... and usually end up using them as scarves, tucked into the neckline of my coat in winter. It works for me ;-)

  5. Nice blog work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
