Good morning! Even though I have the mildest case of ennui with my knitting, I have been knitting faithfully on two projects and enjoying them both AND I am mulling over a third cast on in the near future just haven't decided on a pattern as of yet. 

First up is the pink shawl in the above photo. This pattern is super easy to memorize (for me) and I just truck along row after row after row. There are two ways to knit the shawl - bottom up triangle (the one I chose) or an edge to edge construction. 

Now about the Christmas stocking below, I wish the Past Me would have made better notes when I made these 5 years ago for my daughter and her husband and documented how much yarn I used. Sadly, the Past Me wasn't diligent. The Current Me is just hoping this takes one skein of red.  It's not a big deal at all, just something I am mulling about. I have two skeins of this red and would be pleased to get two stockings out of it. Somehow the unknown is thrilling and gives life a bit of an edge.

What are you working on this week?

  1. You know how to live life on the wild side - knitting stockings without knowing how much yarn you might need! Even if you run out, I know that you are a creative enough knitter to figure out something that will work beautifully!

  7. Living live on the edge exciting times. The stocking is a joy and great minds think alike I have started to crochet some granny squares in Christmas colours to make into stockings. Love the shawl.

  10. Hi Karen,
    ...your shawl is going to be gorgeous...and I know what you mean about the stocking...I usually have some sort of 'contingency plan' when I've got limited yarn...
    ~Have a lovely day!

  12. I like your "wild-side" living. That is the kind of wild-side I enjoy too. When you finish the first stocking you will know how much you need for the second one. The beautiful shawl is coming along. I was just looking at a pattern for a triangular shawl that begins at the point. I need to keep moving on what is on my needles. I did cast on a toddler sweater for my granddaughter - so that I have three projects.
