Knitting News

  

Good morning!  I've been busy with three knitting projects this week and yet I'm yearning to cast on a new one.  I'm resisting the urge since I really want the golden wheat shawl done.  I am getting very close to running out of the yellow wool and debating whether to add a contrasting color and make the shawl bigger or just finish the shawl with one color.  I'll let you know what I decide, it'll depend on what is leftover in my stash.

The Wedding shawl is making great progress.  I work on this at night since I can watch a tv show at the same time.  The row with beads is very slow going but ultimately satisfying!  I'm using this method to place the beads.  I love how this is turning out.



The socks for my daughter's Christmas present are my zooming socks.  I can knit and talk with this project and so I save this project when I'm gabbing away.  I adore the color-way and the stripe sequence.

What are you working on this week?

  1. All beautiful projects! The wedding shawl will be stunning (it already is). I'm working on my Hawk socks and my sampler. Enjoying both. Was hoping to walk early this morning...but now it is raining.

  2. Your shawls are so lovely. I think I have shawl burnout. I am mostly working on my color work sweater but I did start a donation hat.

  3. I had never seen that way to put bead on a project. Very interesting. This gal has always used the crochet hook method. Thanks for linking the tutorial. All of your projects are so pretty. Adding a contrasting color to a shawl is a favorite of mine. I guess it depends on how you will be wearing it too. Your daughters socks are a very pretty color. They will be so cheerful on a dreary winter day.

  4. Beautiful projects.

    I just cast on a pair of lacy socks. So far, I'm loving the pattern even if I do have to read carefully.

  5. Both of your shawls are gorgeous...I love the 'idea' of a shawl...and I have a few that I've either knit or crocheted...but I rarely actually wear them...your socks are very cute...I just finished my black socks...and I'm starting a little pair of footsies/footlets/no-show socks...whatever you call those...and I'm embroidering a dishtowel for an upcoming wedding gift...I've got a couple of weeks until the September Porch Pillow Project kickoff but I've got the pattern ready to go...it will say Happy Fall Y'all...
    ~Have a lovely day!

  10. I continue to love your Golden Wheat Shawl.
    The beads really add to the wedding Citron.
    I've got a bunch of stuff going: a hat, a shawl and a blanket.

  11. Your shawls are wonderful. I am totally loving that sock, the colours! They are so lovely. My shawl is off the needles, I bought some buttons for it today and am now pondering where on earth I am going to block it as it is so big!

  12. Can't wait to see what you decide about the wheat shawl. I love the color as it is. The wedding shawl is awesome too. I don't think I've seen that before. We had some internet issues and I wasn't able to keep up with all the blogs I follow. What pattern is that? It's beautiful and I love the beading.

  13. Your shawls are lovely as always. I finished some child-sized mittens and a matching hat for a charity donation. I have socks and a shawl on the needles. Like you I am trying to resist the allure of casting on a new project.
