Works in progress

Hi there, If you follow my blog you know that this week has been a super happy mail week and that I recently received my order of gradient yarns from Knitcircus Yarns. I of course got super excited and despite my good intentions of actually finishing some of my works in progress BEFORE casting on for yet another project I was unable to resist. I chose to use the Sand Castle Yarn and do the Come What May Shawl by Susan B Anderson

My progress so far on the Come What May shawl by Susan B Anderson

Looks pretty good so far I think. And the pattern is a joy to knit, simple but not too simple and as it’s knit on size 4 mm/US6 needles it progresses super quick I feel and that is always a good perk.

I’ve not forgotten about my baby blanket although it’s been on the back burner these past 2 days, but I really love how the pattern works out, I love the colour which I hope the parents will also like and feel is unisex. I just hope I dyed enough yarn….As I never write anything down but dye “to feeling” (if that is a thing). What do you think? I do need to be careful to count my stitches because sometimes I stop and realize that I’ve crossed the stitches at the wrong place and I need to unravel a few stitches down a few rows. But so far so good, now I just need to be serious and continue so it will be finished in time for my little niece or nephew.

I’ve also been doing some work for the I Knit Fandango show which is coming up in just a few days!!! Can you believe that!! I’m so excited and I look forward to perhaps meet some of you and to share with you here the pictures of my booth and so forth. So i’ve been doing stitch markers and fibre crafts themed earrings. Do you like these?

  1. Thank you Sarah:) Yes the shawl is working out great and I’m almost done! Which is incredible because I only cast on the day before yesterday! I’m only a few rows from the beaded bind off. So I have purchased some beads that I hope to receive next week to be able to finish the shawl. This will be a record knit I think as I don’t think I’ve ever completed a shawl in just a week:) I’ll show you pictures once all is done and bound off:)

  2. O my goodness! I just knew that yarn would knit up beautifully. It is even better looking than what I would have imagined. Gorgeous.
    Love the baby blanket. It is a really nice pattern. Sweet earrings as well, how cute.
    Happy knitting.
