My color affliction shawl is progressing steadily. I can see why everyone has this as their project on ravelry because it's addictive and fun. Who knew that knitting garter stitch in different colors could be so entertaining? I am on the third section that adds the third color and the short row shaping. I can easily knit this and mulit-task. I am already dreaming of other color combos. Now that I have the pattern and have knit it once, I have an idea of how much yarn is needed for each section so maybe I'll be using up some odds and ends?
My other project is the cowl that is of my very own design. Since last week, I had to rip it all out and start all over. I just wasn't very happy with it. I think I'm on the right track now. Yesterday I was just wondering if I have enough yarn to do enough repeats......oh well. I don't mind ripping out again if it doesn't work out. The weather around here is NOT cowl weather so there's no rush in knitting it up.
As I mentioned last week, the reading is very very minimal. My daughter was home for spring break last week and now my son is home this week. Oh and this time change has been brutal for me! So when I read in bed, I end up sleeping in bed with a book. Anyways, I'm reading The House at Riverton by Kate Morton. I just love how she weaves a story together and I also enjoy how she jumps from different time periods.
