Knitting News



Good morning!  I've got four projects going at the same time which is my knitting project maximum.  I'll be updating you on three and only two are photographed. I have been making steady progress on my plain socks.  I tend to work on these during Zoom meetings because I can talk and knit at the same time without making a mistake.

The first shawl that I'm showcasing is the forever-on-my-needles Aisling shawl.  I finally arrived at the lace edging after miles of garter stitch.  Ordinarily, I love garter stitch but the combination of super-wash wool and silk makes it slippery and easy to drop off the needle.  I have to look at my knitting all the time!


Next up, I started the wedding shawl over the weekend and I'm trying really hard not to obsessively knit it all up.  This yarn is fantastic to work with, also I love the clear beads that are placed delicately in the increasing section.  The color she chose matches a ribbon that will be in her hair, the ribbon might be in the bouquet as well, I cannot remember.  The dress is ivory and we agreed we didn't want to try to match that distinctive color without actually have the wool and dress to compare.  



What are you working on this week?

  1. Gorgeous! All of it!! The wedding shawl will be so beautiful. And I love your yarn for Aisling (sorry it is slippery though) - such a pretty shade.

  2. so so so pretty! For the first time in a very very very long time I have a sweater on the needles! I think this was the last of my sweater quantity stash (can you believe?)....but I'm eyeing several oldies but goodies to frog and reknit into something I might actually wear.

  3. I think doing the wedding shawl in her accent color is the best idea. Loving the beads being used too. Four projects being worked on is a good number. I have 2 going right now and am thinking of starting a third as I do not have any socks on my needles. We all know socks needto be going at all times, right?

  4. Aisling looks lovely now and will be lovelier still when completed and blocked. All wedding shawls should have beads!

  9. Love all your projects, especially the wedding shawl. I am sure the bride will love it! I've really be out of the loop blogging-wise. We've been doing lots of gardening and walking and just plain enjoying this stretch of good weather. Hugs to you!

  14. Beautiful shawls. The Aisling is a beautiful pattern, and it will be stunning in that color.
    Why limit your knitting on the wedding shawl. That is such an important project!

  15. Trying to finish up the husband's socks and work on my shawl at least two rows a day. I love this Rainy Day colorway you've been working with and think it super sweet that you're knitting the wedding shawl for your future, daughter-in-law (Did I get that right?).
