Currently on the Needles


Oh my knitting is fabulous-I am loving each stitch of my shawl I have only three more chart patterns to go but they will go slowly because of the massive amount of stitches on the needles.  The geometric design is interesting and I'm looking forward to seeing this project blocked out!  Wearing this in the early Fall is making me quite happy to think about.  The daydreaming begins.

I finished The Interestings last week and it wasn't that interesting overall.  There were times that the plot was captivating but overall I didn't care for the characters.  So, my new read is a book I picked up while in Hilton Head, who knows how this one will be.  I only just started to read a few days ago so I haven't formed an opinion as of yet.

What's on your needles?

  1. the shawl is looking GREAT!!!!! and new book title ..... judging a book by its cover, this should be good!!! (I'm with you on the Interestings-----it was interesting enough to finish it, but not interesting enough to rave about it.)

  2. I can't wait to see it blocked too! I was thinking the same thing about my shawl last night - seeing the pattern slowly develop is so interesting.

  5. I can't wait to see the shawl all blocked! It will be gorgeous. It's a great color. I think that is one thing that I dislike about shawls is the massive amounts of stitches by the time you get to the end of it.

  6. I'd be daydreaming with that shawl on my needles, too! It is going to be wonderful!! I have yarn... and a project!! I'm excited but still not much time to devote yet.... I can see the light at the end of the tunnel... I think. Hope it's not a train. hee hee. blessings ~ tanna

  8. Nice progress, Karen. :) Please don't wish fall upon us just yet! We were talking just yesterday about there still be almost two months of summer left! Fall is my favorite season, though...yes, pull out the wool! But. not. yet. Too many days to enjoy at the river still! :) Sorry about your last book; hope the new one is a little more interesting. xo Lisa ;)

  9. Your shawl looks like my baby blanket from when I was a kid! (I may have said that last week too!) Is it as soft and cozy as it looks?

  21. Gosh, you are really whipping that shawl out quickly! It's going to be very nice, and practical also. I'm working on a bonnet for Stella and reading The Vacationers. It's quite good.

  24. Beautiful shawl. I can't wait to see it blocked. The pattern looks quite interesting. As for The Interestings, I have heard so many mixed reviews about it. I hope you are enjoying your next book.

  25. Beautiful pattern and yarn Karen- there is something so pretty with neutrals ( this coming from some one who has to color everything in sight...he.he.)

  26. Funny that The Interesting was not interesting. hehe. I have not been knitting much at all lately-- too hot out here. Hope to sneak some in this weekend though-- I am overdue for a baby present!

  27. I found The Interesting very uninteresting, too. What was all that hype over, anyway? Your shawl looks fun and very interesting! The shawl I'm knitting has all sorts of fun things going on and I'm rather taken with a new book, Hunting and Gathering.
