One minute it's Friday evening, the next it's Monday mornin!
I still haven't taken photos of After the Rain, my Felted Tweed striped jumper.
I HAVE sewn in the ends of Quick Sand II which finally dried on Saturday, but no photos (and it hasn't grown much...
I've also darned in the ends of the baby cardigan Entrechat. Although not a fun knit (the chosen yarn was a bit thin for the tension) I like this design. There's a bit of a ruffle on the back, whi9ch sorts out the bolera shape so the cast off isn't too tight. It's sleeveless and will make a fine summer cardigan for a baby. Just one button to sew on too.
That's three things which are so very nearly finished!
I worked on my I'm the Boss cowl - I've worked one repeat, and think I must do at least another two.
I've frogged my Sandshore cardigan (the mesh panel was tkaing too long to fix) and restarted it. I'm being very careful!
I've worked another few inches on the sock leg. Not feeling the love of sock knitting, but reckon that if I do an inch a day I can finally finish a pair of socks.
And. TaDa! I've cast on a new shawl, Talisman, the first of the Shawl Aociety patterns. I've gone for Skein Queen's Little Squashes, in fading peach. (I have plenty of other yarn choices, but he newest has won out). This is a very simple and plain shawl. I've chosen a gradient, but it will work as well in a stronger gradient, or emen a variegated, I think. It's virtually lain sotcking stitch, wth some (k3tog, yo, k3tog) into one stitch eveyr so often. But I'm sticking with the gradient I chose. What I love about Helen's patterns is the layout, a table format and a percentage. I'm not sure how accurate the percentage is, I've usually just been curious as to my shalw progress, but this time I'm worried about yardage. I have five 20g skeins, and don't want to run out on the cast off! I knitted one extra row after the 20% stage with the first of the five mini skeins, so I'm on track!
I had to put the daylight lamp on this morning to take a phot, it was so dark and miserable and wet in London! Summer Solstice is coming up and we have such horrible weather. MrC tells me it's also going to be a full moon (no idea who that affects things, but maybe it means we'll have a long day and a light night).
So this week is a very mixed bunch of WIPs, Socks, cowl, shawl and cardigan. At least I have a choice as to what to work on. Hopefully a finished pair of socks and a finishd cowl by the end of the week!
