What does a knitter do when she is so close to finishing a sweater? She works on a shawl of course. I haven't spent much time on this shawl and yesterday while listening to podcasts I added 6 more rows. The border is over half way done.
Well now, I was hoping that the sweater would be done and I have merely six rows to go on the second cuff. I just couldn't finish it last night, I was tired and so were my hands (cotton is unforgiving), so today is the day the sweater will be off the needles.
Such pretty colors keeping you busy. I like the gradient effect in the shawl.ReplyDelete
I love the gradual shade change on the pink shawl...so pretty....and congratulations on finishing the pretty pink sweater...ReplyDelete
~Have a lovely day!
I've learned the hard way not to keep knitting late at night when I'm tired and my hands are, too. There are usually too many mistakes to rip out in the morning. Both of your pink projects are lovely!ReplyDelete
Only 6 more rows. How exciting. It is a lovely sweater. The shawl will be done soon too. What is next to go on your needles? I am knitting sock....still.ReplyDelete
6 more rows! You are so done!!! My hands and joints are still complaining from all the knit 2 togethers on my shawl that is off the needles and not blocked. . Im working on a new shawl. I started sock knitting , used a 8 row leaf repeat. Got lost somewhere and it didn't look like leaves...ReplyDelete
so I bailed. Happier shawl knitting now anyhow.....:)
Cotton is hard on my hands too, but oh my! That sweater is so pretty and soft looking. I'm betting you get a ton of use out of it. The pink shawl is really pretty too. I'm working on my HItchhiker and I want to pick out yarn for my next sock adventure.ReplyDelete
So much pretty in pink! Looks like you will be finished both those projects soon. Time to plan the next one! Look forward to seeing them in all their finished glory.ReplyDelete
I love both of these projects and love the colors of the shawl. The sweater looks so close to being done and is adorable.ReplyDelete
I am loving the sweater Karen both the pattern and the yarn, a wonderful make.ReplyDelete
Those two projects are so pretty. My knitting has been rather scattered lately. That means it is time to tend to one or two projects and finish something. Take good care of your hands. You are wise to set aside the sweater and rest your hands. It will be finished - all in good time.ReplyDelete
My cross stitch which is now done as of last night. I've been working on my shawl and more on my nephew's cardigan.ReplyDelete
Both of your projects are beautiful. Stay safe.ReplyDelete
Like you more rows on my shawl and I have cast on a sock this week which is slowly growing. Your projects are lovely, the gradient of colours on your shawl is wonderful.ReplyDelete
Gosh, that sweater is lovely. Such a delicate shade of pink.ReplyDelete
