Currently on the Needles
My photo today is a bit deceiving... I threw in the Hamilton book but barely read two pages this week. I'll blame the company that was in my house. Having both my family here visiting and then my sister and her family visiting gobbled up all of my free time.
The citron shawl has made great progress due to its ease in knitting. This project can be executed while talking and multitasking on most of the rows. I like that. My sister and I sat in the front room knitting away (and talking).
I'm participating in a yarn along with Girls in Sheep Clothing blog. They chose Anisos shawl and while this photo above is pristine and beautiful and shows great progress, I stupidly dropped a stitch in a yarn over area and was unable to fix it last night. (I'll blame watching Doctor Who, Series Five with Amy Pond...) So I ripped all of it out and started over.
This knit is NOT for multitasking...Ha!

What are you knitting and reading this week?
Both shawls will be gorgeous! Love the colors. I'm having a hard time getting back to the "routine" of work - lol.ReplyDelete
I love your color choices Karen! Beautiful!! And, dropping a stitch and starting over with that many stitches is so painful!ReplyDelete
Oh no! I am going very slowly on my current project because I do not want to rip this one back!ReplyDelete
both will be gorgeous.....as all your knits are!!! I'm joining you with Hamilton...and loving it!!!ReplyDelete
Love the color on your NEW project too! Lots of lovely knitting to keep you busy this winter.ReplyDelete
ugh. I hate that you had to rip back to the beginning. The color for your citron is lovely.ReplyDelete
I'm working on a couple pairs of mitts, and reading Dewey, the Library Cat that is our January book club choice. Sorry you had to rip out the shawl; that's a bummer. I had to rip back one of the mitts because I couldn't figure out where I had stopped. Back on track, thankfully!ReplyDelete
Gosh that yarn for the citron is stunning! Sorry about that dropped stitch...bummer :(ReplyDelete
Good luck on your KAL, I did one of theirs several years ago and loved it. Happy New Year to you and your family.ReplyDelete
I hate when that happens! It's particularly irksome on knits where there are a ton of stitches!ReplyDelete
Good luck with both of your knits! I also love having two projects going on at the same time - one mindless knit and one that I can really follow along, learn new things and have fun!ReplyDelete
Your Citron is stunning, and I bet Anisos is also, now that you've (painfully) started over. And I think Hamilton will be willing to wait for you. :-)ReplyDelete
Such a shame that you had to rip out your project, I hate it when that happens. Have fun with both of your projects. Take care.ReplyDelete
Love the Citron!ReplyDelete
Yes, there's social/TV knitting... and then, there's solitary knitting. LOL! Evan still refers to the lace knitting as "DON'T SAY ANYTHING TO ME, I'M COUNTING!" knitting. LOL! Haven't done any of that in awhile. ;) Your Citron is going to be so beautiful! Can't wait to see it finished. blessings ~ tannaReplyDelete
Sounds like a wonderful use of free time to me :) I have to do some unknitting today too (how did an extra YO get in there?!?)and am thankful it will only be a couple rows. Ripping out it painful!ReplyDelete
I headed over to GIRL IN SHEEPs and love it. Thanks for the link. Im knitting a shawl that is not near as lacy as your KAL. 28s Big Sister 77. Reading: blogsReplyDelete
Thanks for the intro to Girl in Sheeps Clothing. I love finding new knitting blogs to read. Sorry about having to rip Anisos. That's painful! It's going to be gorgeous when you're done though.ReplyDelete
I love your honesty, Karen! Both projects look wonderful. I am currently working on embroidery, although what I SHOULD be doing is finishing up the sweater I started four years ago! : )ReplyDelete
